Tuesdays with Charlie | Little Acorns.

Little Acorns* was a favorite activity of ours last spring and summer. The photo booth, the train, story time, the toys, wishes in the fountain and even an occasional lunch out. 

Thinking today might be our first and last Little Acorns for this season, I was happy we managed to do all of those things.
the "Easter-ish" photo booth

the train - favorite car this season is a closed one
toys on the lawn
making a wish
grilled cheese ... only when he's out to lunch (with me!)
...and then I was most happy for a nice rest while Charlie took a long nap.

But the light of my day was working a sticker puzzle (from my mom) and then asking Charlie to smile so we could text Gramma a thank you. that smile.

Thank you for all your good wishes for smooth transitions this week. Your warm, virtual hugs are a big help!

*Tuesday morning playtime at the outdoor mall near our house. They setup a few Little Tykes-like toys, play very kid-friendly music on the loudspeakers and find local businesses to sponsor activities like face painting and coloring.

I clicked on this post in feedly with a little trepidation (as I wasn't sure I wanted to read about the last Tuesday with Charlie). I'm glad you had such a nice day together, and I'm sure there will be oodles of other days with Charlie and Sam. Thanks so much for sharing them with us, and I'm looking forward to seeing the boys continue to grow. I'll be thinking about all of you over the next few weeks!

I'm so glad you made the most of this Tuesday together. I know it will be a challenge to find new ways to spend time with Charlie and Sam but I also know that Katie is committed to making sure you get lots of time with them, too. I'm impressed that Charlie still takes such great naps, too.

Endings . . . are really just new beginnings! You are going to figure out how to have new adventures with your boys. Changes are hard, but we are resilient people. I'm looking forward to hearing what happens . . . next. Much love to you. XOXO
