Where I have a good day

It felt strange, to have no kids for so long. I kept thinking I needed to go get someone, and I kept glancing in the back seat while I drove. I couldn't believe how much I got done at home - and went to an hour and a half long yoga class! It was a wonderful day, the first I've had in a long time. We had a 20 degree drop in temps, and it is blessedly chilly out. I adore fall. As much as I bitch about the extremes here in regards to weather, I love the changing of the seasons. There's always something to look forward to. I still hate you west coast bastards with your '75 degrees and sunny' days. Ha!

Henry is slowly starting to read, after much intense help and coaching from us. He read me a book (Goodnight Moon) tonight for the first time. It made my day, not just that he gets it, but to hear the confidence and pride in his little voice. Thrilling, really! 

Addie is soaking in her too-decadent-for-a-four-year-old-bath, and I'm thinking of a walk after she's in bed. The weather is just too nice to pass it up!
