Park Weather

The weather has been great lately, so we have been spending a lot of time at the park, which is one of Stephen's very favorite things to do! This has been a good distraction when Stephen decides not to nap, usually a weekend thing, but more recently, sometimes during the week as well. It keeps him from getting too fussy because he's tired, and the bonus is that he falls asleep really quickly these nights! I hope this won't be a daily thing, but who knows?

At the park, of course we enjoy the swings...
And the slide - Stephen just loves the big slides too!


This particular day, we decided to try the tube slide. Stephen climbed up the stairs, and then Erik helped him get situated at the top.

This slide? Not a big hit. Stephen was pretty nervous coming down, and was happy not to go again. But we will go again, because it will help Stephen to see that there is really nothing to be afraid of!
School is going well for Stephen still, but he'll be done with that in a few weeks. Then we'll be on our own for the summer, except for "church school" one day a week for 6-7 weeks. The theme of summer session is "Bugs," which should please Stephen. He has been showing an increased interest in bugs when we go to the zoo, so I hope he learns some neat stuff!
