Since summer vacation has started, we've been busy.
We've visited the spray ground, the park with the interactive fountain, the pool, and the bookstore. We've seen friends and cooked dinners and stayed super busy.
I think Ellie hit a wall.
Today, she said, "I need a nap" and proceeded to lie down on the floor. Unfortunately, she picked a spot right in front of the mail slot. I hope she doesn't get a rude awakening with a shower of letters!
This post is part of my 52 project - weekly portraits or other shots of Ellie which are shared over at Practising Simplicity. I've been so busy taking pictures of other people's kids that I've been a slacker with my own! But summer is off to a great start, I'm thrilled to report that business is steady and when I'm not busy taking pictures of editing, it's nice to have time to play with Ellie. She misses school and asked me to text her teacher today.
Happy, happy summer.
If you haven't seen it yet, Ellie has a Facebook page for this blog where I also share other interesting links, often about Down syndrome.
