We spent the week stacking new habits onto old ones, aiming for a little bit more structure each week until we ramp up to our full fall schedule. It’s starting this week and it’s a lot. We’re getting a lot more outdoor time than I’m able to note by moving meals outside. I love it, although I’m constantly reminded we need to move ahead with our wasp candle project. This week’s outdoor tally: camping – 1, fishing – 4, swimming – 2, biking – 2, family walks – 2, outdoor meals – 9.
