Jacob’s summer

Home for the summer – and loving it.

Jacob’s been home for a little over a month now. This means that mom (who’s now 8 months pregnant), has done her best to keep him well fed, excercised and learning throughout the day until Dad can get home, eat together, play and read a little bit, and then hit the sack to do it all over again. Needless to say, keeping a 6 year old sufficiently occupied and fairly calm is not easy. Thanks Mom!

While Mom and Dad may look forward to the start of school (just a bit – Jacob is actually a warm-memory-generator ), Jacob is very much enjoying his summer. He loves to read his books, play with his toys – especially his Lincoln Logs from Grammie, go swimming, watch movies, play with his friends Alaric and Max and do his reading and math workbooks. He’s also been very interested in learning about ancient Egypt, mummies, trains and the

Jacob’s new pet turtles – ‘Stnky Pete’ (on the right) and ‘Sherri’ (under the big rock on the left).


Jacob also got a special visit from his Grandpops (David’s Dad) and he really enjoyed it – as did his Grandpops! They read plenty of books, played with trains and watched some of Jacob’s favorite movies together. Jacob missed Grandpops after he left (he was here for one week) and still asks Mom and Dad to read two of the books he got from Grandpops – ‘Just Me and My Dad’ and ‘Just Me and My Mom’ – both Little Critter books.

Below are photos of Jacob’s summer – including Jacob and Grandpops together. At the bottom is a rather unsuccessful video of Jacob talking about his summer.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
