Mowing the grass is amazing! (If you're Thomas)

When John mows the grass, Thomas enjoys sitting at watching every time!  Even if he was formerly cranky, he immediately calms down and watched intently as John goes back and forth accross the lawn!

Summer Sun

 The last few days have really felt like summer up here. The sun has been out full force for much of the day and temperatures have been almost 90 (I know this is probably cool compared to what you guys in Alabama are experiencing, but it does feel hot!).  Thomas loves being outside!

Yesterday when John came home for lunch, he found us outside.  Thomas was enjoying just sitting under a tree.  As I couldn't decide which pictures to show, I decided to use them all.  It's amazing all the different expressions Thomas can make in just a few minutes as well as how many different ways he sucks his thumb and fingers!

As Thomas enjoys himself in the shade, I've been enjoying using the summer sun to dry our clothes.  Since Thomas loves being outside, he's less fussy if I spend time hanging the clothes up and folding them as I take them down then if I were to do that inside.  I also like knowing that we're using less energy and thus saving some money by using the great clothes line that came with our house.  Hanging clothes is also great if you tend to forget about checking and turning back on the clothes in the dryer.  If you forget them on the line, they will just get dryer the longer you wait (as long as it doesn't rain!).
