So, we've finally settled into a bit of a routine. Since we live so far from town, Sora and I try to hitch a ride with Kyle when he has to work in town once a week. We explore parks, find new stores, play at the same coffee shop every time, and get to know our new city. The rest of the week we spend up at camp. We go on nature walks at least once a day. We sometimes draw what we see. We sometimes sit and read outside. We build forts, watch squirrels and robins, pick dandelions, marvel at/identify wildflowers, say hi to the fishermen, and enjoy the beautiful weather. Sora rides her balance bike and crosses the wobbly bridge (thanks to Pinterest) multiple times a day.
Life is good and we are working hard to establish a new normal, until summer camp comes along and a whole new normal is normal. And then when that is normal, school will start and everything will be chaotic once again.
On another note, Sora spent her first weekend away from home (other than when we were in the midst of moving across country). She stayed two nights at her grandparents while Kyle and I went to a work fundraising dinner. Sora loved it, and it was nice to explore some areas of town without her. We are visiting my mom in a few weeks (who lives five hours away) and Sora was disappointed at first when she realized that I was coming too and not just dropping her off!
