The weather in my area has gotten hot! I am usually not a hot weather person (except for swimming!), but it has been so nice getting to play outside with Kellen everyday. We started our summer garden and have been enjoying watching our plants grown. We planted a few herbs on the deck, as well as ground cherries, baby tomatoes and celery. In our larger garden in the yard we have zucchini, cucumbers, onions, radishes, carrots, and Kellen’s requested pumpkin. He is so excited to grow his own jack-o-lantern and I hope it grows well for us! I am also really enjoying my FMLA day once a week to spend with my littlest boy. It is so nice to break up the week and have the additional time to bond with him and enjoy Kellen at the same time. This past week I took the boys to see Thomas the Train at the Railroad Museum! I will be sad when the FMLA hours are over in mid-September! I would love to work 4 days a week, but not sure that is in the cards at my job right now…. maybe someday!
This week I am at a conference for work and have had to pump milk for the baby on the fly! I am lucky to have my own office at work and was in my car yesterday- thank goodness for air conditioning! The place where the training is held can accommodate space for pumping, but it is a bit far from the room and it is faster for me to run to the car to make the most of my time before I need to get back for the presentations- life of a working mom! It really is not that bad, but it certainly makes me miss my baby when I am away!
