Katherine and I walked with Nathaniel to the grocery store the other day, leaving the stroller at home. I was glad I took the backpack, since he needed to be carried part of the way, but for a long time he and Katherine walked hand-in-hand down the street. I think he really enjoyed his experience, since he’s been playing “grocery store” ever since.
The kids have been spending a lot of time out in the garden since the weather warmed up, which has been a great help to us. We have to break up a lot fewer fights if they can roam the yard while we cook.
