Life gets pretty crazy in the summer.

Owen broke his arm. It was a bit of trouble at first but then he figured out that he can still summersault over picnic tables. He is looking forward to getting the cast off soon.

Trevor is planning to make robots to do household chores. I told him I made him for this purpose.

Markus got to actually be the only kid in the family for a few days while T&O were at sleep away camp. He enjoyed every minute of it.

Trevor snowshoed to school during a snow storm. We have toy snowshoes that kept falling off but it did not phase him. He is spending time at friends’ houses and they come over often as well. It is nice to come home and try to guess how many kids are in the house. Trevor’s favourite reading is the Calvin and Hobbes collection. He loves playing Minecraft. Trev is planning on working on his art so we will have to go buy some paints at some point.

The other day I caught him watching some weird content on YouTube.

B: What’s going on?
T: I’m trying to learn why animals eat people and how to stop them from eating other people.
B: That is a very good question and worthy of research. But YouTube???
T: Yeah!!
B: What were you watching?
T: “Ten animals that ate their owners”.
B: !!!

I guess we have to work on media literacy.
