Around our world the past week or so...
My mystery illness started last Friday evening, so I missed opening day on Saturday for Georgia's baseball season. Nick handled daddy duties and took Grant along with them to the game so that I could go back to bed and crash for a bit.
Georgia and I did manage to spend a few minutes that afternoon writing down some ideas for fall outings/events. We loved having our summer checklist, so we're planning to work off this fall list for the next few months.
On Sunday, Nick took Grant up the street for a hair cut. He lasted quite awhile since his 1st official trim back in June, but his mullet was getting out of control again. I was a little confused when they came home and Grant was sporting a "baby's 1st haircut certificate." Apparently, Nick didn't have the heart to break it to the ladies at the Hair Cuttery that it wasn't Gran't 1st rodeo!
On Monday, Nick worked from home and our long-awaited storm/screen door install finally happened. After several trips back and forth to Lowes, the HOA application, signatures from neighbors, talking to the install people for measurement, scheduling the install, delivery of the door, and Nick attending the HOA meeting with all the papers.... it FINALLY went up!

On Tuesday night, our regularly scheduled baseball practice was substituted with a game instead. It was a gorgeous night for some baseball...

On Wednesday night, Georgia had her 1st CCD class and then we rushed home to inhale some food before I turned around and headed back out for a PTA meeting. It was another gorgeous night, so Nick brought the kids up to the school for some playground fun.
Grant is finally starting to figure out that if he wants to keep up with his sister and her friends, he's gonna need to walk. He still has ZERO motivation and if he thinks he can make it somewhere faster by crawling, he will drop and go 90mph on his hands and knees. But, maybe, this is a start?!?! Almost 14 months later...
The other fun thing to do these days is to climb the stairs repeatedly and then try to throw yourself down them...
We scored a new toy chest/bench to try to control the crazy toy situation in this house. The most exciting part... the box! Endless entertainment this past weekend.

Look out world, here he comes...
On Saturday evening, we headed to The Great Frederick Fair. We had never been to this fair before, but we've declared it a new family favorite!
