We are nearly at the end of our epic move from Massachusetts to California, and this week the kids got to spend a LOT of time with family! We left my grandma’s house on Saturday, and – while it will be wonderful to be settled again – it was sad to leave just as the kids were really getting to know her! We are spending a few days with Mike’s mom and sister in Las Vegas now, and it’s great to catch up with them!
This week was light on structured academic learning, but Emma has started making real progress in learning French thanks to the free Duolingo app! We spent one afternoon at the local library, and Anna enjoyed reading books as much as the other kids. Mike has been gone for most of the month (and will be for most of October as well), and it was cute to see her read through a board book about babies and dads and point out the dad on each page. Having the kids out of school was well worth the extra time we had to enjoy getting to know Great-Grandmas, cousins, and other relatives!
