Caleb Time

Last week I sent the older two boys off to Vacation Bible School at our church to have a blast. This week they both went to zoo camp. Both of them have had the time of their lives at the two camps and want to go back. Having them away has given me a lot of one on one time with Caleb the past two weeks. It has been a lot of fun! I’ve been reminded of the times when it was just me and Elias all the time. I wish I could go back with all of the wisdom I’ve picked up. I just feel so much more relaxed now that I have some perspective.

So what have Caleb and I been up to? Some days we just stayed home and played. Caleb helped me in the garden a bunch. I dragged him to the grocery store a couple of times. Mostly, though, we’ve been out and about having fun.

We went to the park.

We played in the fountains.

We went to the Rose Garden. Caleb ran around from bush to bush smelling all of the flowers he could find at his height.

Here is a particularly pretty rose we found.

We went to the zoo a bunch of times where a nice lady gave us free train ride tickets. We got to see the hippos really active as well as the polar bears, monkeys and more.

Today I took Caleb to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. He enjoyed the fountain and walking around the spiral path. It was so peaceful there.

Having just reached 20 months, Caleb is really getting big. He amazes me every day and I’m glad we got this time together.

This morning I was trying to take a picture of all three boys in front of my hydrangea bush. Getting a good picture of all three is no small feat. I tried about 10 pictures. This was the best one. I think Elias was trying to get Caleb to look at the camera, and I’m not sure what is going on with the figurine named “Beachy” in Simon’s hands. Apparently he is important enough to make it into the zoo camp commemoration picture.

I love these boys. We are lucky to be able to send them to fun camps and spend time together. On to the rest of summer!
