The boys’ cousin, Leighton, is here with us this week! Whoop! She’s starting 8th grade in a few weeks in CA, so it’s still summer vacation for her. We’ve done lots of Bloomington-ish things during her visit…hunted for geodes and stomped in Jackson Creek, toured the I.U. campus, visited the Wonderlab and the park. The boys adore her! She baked us delicious cookies the other day, too, and I’ve learned a lot about Taylor Swift, Mythbusters, hilarious YouTube videos, and of course, middle school friendship drama. Definitely not the normal life I lead! It’s been a really fun week!
