October 13: With the government shutdown, Nick’s daily work changed. As did his location. We were so fortunate that he had work the entire time, and every more happy that it meant he could work from home for the near 3 wks. We all enjoyed the unhurried space it afforded together again.
October 16: An evening with a sick boy and a little house work.
October 18: One of the best things about our new home in the neighbors. And lucky for Lya it means a easy play dates and a friend in the new world of kindergarten.
October 19: Lucas has had some great one liners lately. One night, after we had said goodnight, he brought me the book “Panda Bear, Panda Bear” and said, “Mama, I have looked and looked and looked and I can not find the cat!” I clarified that he was looking for the purple cat and then responded, “Oh, I think it is in the other book.” (Brown Bear, Brown Bear.) He smiled and said, “Oh Becky, you’re so wise!” and then he left to go find the book.
