D is 8!

Here's some of what's happening:

  • D is 8 today.  His grandma and grandpa got him a Kindle and we got him a large and complicated set of German-made blocks.  My husband has linked D's Kindle to C's account and we took advantage of the Amazon sale on Chronicles of Narnia, so he has about 15 books on the Kindle now.  He's reading The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents
  • I took a big walk today with Baby T and have done over 12k steps today.  This being a week day, a surprising number of campus venues were open (Einstein Brothers' Bagels, the library Starbucks, etc.), just with shorter hours.  Pretty much everything was closed over the weekend.  
  • My husband and C and D made a two-layer chocolate mint cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting and peppermint patties between the two layers and on top.
  • My husband and the big kids went swimming this afternoon and are doing some comet viewing right now.
