A Sunny Holiday Weekend

We are having perfect weather here in Mid-Michigan this weekend, especially for a holiday weekend. I don't imagine my two boys will actually do much coloring today as it is supposed to be sunny and in the 70s!

My child with autism will probably ride his scooter a lot today. It's one of his favorite outdoor activities. He also enjoys playing with the neighbor kids. Some of them are three years younger or more (his brother is 4.5 years younger and is a great outdoor playmate as well), so it works out well developmentally. He has a few problems from time to time, but most every youngster has a spat with their friends from occasionally.

My husband is mostly an indoor type. He's a librarian!! He'll probably watch some television, keep his ear out for anything going on with our boys outside, and play some computer games. He's probably glad the family outing for today is going to be indoors. We're going bowling with another family. To be fair, he has light skin that burns easily.

As for me, I plan to go on a couple of walks today. Maybe I'll work in the yard some. It's too beautiful to be indoors for too long. The only reason I'm blogging now is because I'm still in my pajamas this morning!! As for this blog, I'm going to lighten up a bit for the summer: shorter posts, more happier posts (with some serious ones sprinkled in), and probably fewer posts. Today is the perfect time to start as Memorial Day unofficially kicks off the summer season here in the United States.
