Be sure to check out all the Celebrate posts on Ruth Ayres blog every Saturday.
I have spent the entire week at home with my wife and baby Hobbes. I have a ton of things that I could share from the last week, but I’ll try and mix in a variety of different things.
1. First Walk
Once we got home from the hospital things got a little crazy. We all of a sudden had nobody to take care of us and three additional kids to keep alive and healthy. I wanted to let Alaina get a little bit of sleep, so I decided to walk the four kids a half mile to our local city park. It was awesome. Hobbes did great and the kids got to run wild.

Watching my 6 year old do it at gymnastics was both humbling and awesome. https://vine.co/v/Ovhngud3zDH/embed/simple
3. A New Chapter Book
We can never have enough great chapter books in the world. I’m reminded this every day as a third grade teacher. Yesterday, I receieved an advance copy of Tricia Springstubb’s Cody and the Fountain of Happiness. It is way good. Like special and amazing and wonderful all wrapped up into 160 pages.
4. Nerdy Book Club Turns 3
Three years ago earlier this week Nerdy Book Club had its third birthday. I’m so proud of what the site has become, and that we have stayed true to our roots. I can’t wait to see what the next 3 years has in store for Nerdy.
I’m participating in the writing challenge Linda Urban through out on her blog. I’m trying to write every single day for 30 days. I’ve never written that many days in a row before, and so far I’m doing pretty good. I’m using the challenge to document our time with baby Hobbes.
