We had a great summer and enjoyed all of the time together. Dad lost his job at the beginning of summer and fortunately picked up a new one. This new one didn't start until August, so we were able to spend extra time together. I continued working through out but I am blessed with an extremely flexible schedule.
We went to see Winter the dolphin in Clearwater with Mom-Mom and Grammy. It was super hot but worth it. Cyler was super excited that he was able to see a real super-star. He had never seen the movie before so we purchased it while we were there.
We traveled a couple hours up north and visited a retirement home for horses. They take old horses and let them live their final years with dignity. Visitors are only allowed 1 day per week and for only a limited number of hours. There is no riding but there is a lot of feeding. Admission is 2 carrots per person and the horses LOVE carrots. It was a great experience for Cyler. He was able to see how all of their personalities were different. Some of them we trained to be performers and still liked to put on a show.
Of course summer would not be complete without a couple of trips to Old Town and a visit from uncle Jordan.
Riding Go Karts with Dad. 1st TIME!!!
Summer was over in the blink of an eye. It was a lot of fun while it lasted. Everything got crazy all at once. Cyler has started school and is doing very well. It takes about 4-5 hours a day but we are able to take breaks when needed so that he can dance around and get his wiggles out. I am so glad we chose to learn at home. He takes school very seriously.
Dad even got talked into being a coach since they are short a couple. Cyler has also joined the 4H club. He is a clover bud. Most of the kids are older than him but he seems to do ok. I like that they are planning some community projects and at the end he will do a public speaking presentation. I am sure he will do fine. This kid can TALK.
