Wednesday was a (very) quiet day at home. Elliana had been up most of the night and well into the morning. It was nearly 10 am before she finally fell back asleep. Unfortunately, I fell asleep while nursing her, and Josiah took the advantage and pulled out all of the books off the bottom shelf of the bookshelf. We had our usual for lunch: peanut butter and jelly, crackers, and peaches. I caught a picture of David and Josiah during nap time, and one of a sneaky Lorelei who wasn’t sleeping. We’ve been without air conditioning for three weeks now, during one of the hottest heat waves on record of course. In the hottest of the afternoon hours you’ll find us stationed in front of the fans, in various stages of lethargy and melting; I’ve tried to remind the kids to drink as much water as they need each day.
