During this past few months of camps, visitors, traveling and more visitors, the kids both hit some major milestones. Nathaniel started crawling, first as a little one footed but scoot crawl, then on hands and feet. He can now use his hands and toes to climb the slides at the park. Lillian just started learning to read. We signed her up for the summer reading program at our local library and she read 53 books over the course of the summer, gradually graduating from the simplest of BOB books into the first level of easy readers. It's been an exciting time around here!
