Today is his first night of soccer starter, which is teaching the soccer moves before being on teams.

The little one wanted to decorate his room to be spooky, and this is what he came up with.

Ran into a turkey and her babies this evening at the park.

We took an early morning walk today, since we were both up early. That let Chris sleep in a little.

We spent the day at the beach in Grand Haven. It was so busy and I'm glad we arrived before noon and had packed lunch.
It took about two hours before the little one would get in the water. He's still not a fan of water in general and definitely not cold water that might splash his face, but we're making progress.

We picked up a small paint sprayer yesterday so we could seal the deck this weekend. It's finally been dry enough to put a waterproof clearcoat after powerwashing several weekends ago.
 Chris did all of the deck work while I entertained the little one.
He was especially impressed with a boardgame I'd backed on Kickstarter that arrived today. Trogdor!! I was a huge fan of Strong Bad emails in the early 2000s so I absolutely had to back anything with Trogdor in it.
The little one really enjoyed the premise of the game (which I explained but we did not play together), which is to play the dragon and burn things. He loved the little figures and the fact that the cards have a burned and unburned side.

It's super hot out but this guy wants to have a blanket on him.

I got up early today and made everyone french toast. Yum!
