This past Father’s Day (and for Manish’s birthday), the boys were able to piece together a “Happy Father’s Day” to their daddy. They said it not just once in the morning, but also before they went to bed. They were so proud of themselves!
Speaking of Manish, the boys still call him “Da”, “Dodden,” and “Didden,” but some recent, new names are “Dadoo” (the current favorite) and “Daddus.” Hannah is consistently called “Mommie,” and even when she is right there, Evan calls for her over and over. Ethan and Evan are very concerned that she is going to leave again, and have definitely developed some separation anxiety since the last trip to Boston.
As a nice Father’s Day, the downstairs air conditioner in our house went out that afternoon and was completely out for nearly 3 days! As you can imagine, this is a bad time of the year to have no A/C in Texas. Fortunately, we finally got it fixed last night…and everyone is very grateful to have lovely cool air!
It’s been busier than usual here–almost two weeks ago, we had some big storms come through and a couple of tornadoes touched down here in our town. Many of our neighbors lost trees, fences, windows, roofing, etc. One such casualty was the beautiful Bradford Pear tree that graced our front yard. It was once again struck by lightning and crashed into our neighbor’s driveway and our bushes (we were very thankful that it missed the house!). Everywhere we go in the area, we see debris and downed trees from the storm. It definitely made an impression on the boys, particularly Ethan. Everytime he sees a tree, he talks about it. In his words: “Uh-oh! Tree! Mommie, tree. Uh-oh!”
Hopefully, our next update won’t take as long as this one did. Being without air conditioning in 100+ degree weather (with 3 toddlers) is brutal…to say the least. Hope you are all enjoying your summer and staying cool 😉
