Bath Time for Baby

Oliver is very happy to be here.

Our stake was just split last week. My new ward is taking some getting used to!
I got a new calling: Primary Secretary. I'm not naturally good at secretary tasks, but I welcome the camaraderie of being with the presidency.

It's so tricky to figure out a ward from scratch. We have so many callings for teachers and cub leaders and we only know about half the members of the ward. Add to that the fact that there are several other organizations that are trying to use the same membership pool to fill their various positions and you have your work cut out for you.

I hope that my health cooperates. I'm always so fatigued that I don't like to commit to things. But I have a little hope because I just started thyroid hormone supplementation. My thyroid numbers are within normal limits, but just on the edge, except for my thyroid autoantibodies; those are 23 times the normal limit.
So I'm in the beginning stages of Hashimoto's. It's really the best autoimmune disease to have, so I'm just thanking my lucky stars for that.

Wish me luck!

Today was Gideon's first day of school! He was so excited. I asked for a hug while we waited for the bus and he ran over, kinda tapped my hip, then ran back to stand on the curb.
Braden tried to board the bus twice, and was sorely disappointed to learn that he won't get to ride the bus until he's five.

He Has No Idea

We got candy last night. Gid (who calls himseld "Did" or "Diddy") knows that. He keeps saying, "Happy Laween!" at random intervals and has mentioned "Did's kinny" a few times this morning. As far as he knows, his "kinny" went night-night because it was tired--and it hasn't woken yet.
But Mommy knows better.

How We're Playing This Summer

Gideon loves to play "Boo!", so I found the perfect place to do that: a box fort!

 He's useless at designing/building, but once it's finished, he'll spend a good long time looking through all the holes to try to find me. He especially likes the reed shade on top; its high visibility and high sun blocking abilities are perfect for peeking through!

Each box (which is a top and bottom pair) cost me a quarter, making the whole project total in at $1.75. For older kids, I might double or triple that to really give them a good building set. I plan to buy more boxes and invite the older cousins over sometime next week to see what they can do.
