Here is how you say airplane in ASL:
Here was one of Archer's favorite planes - the Polar Star. It has skis to land on the snow. This plane took some explorer to Antarctica.

(We are just trying this for the day and will see how long we last).
I hope the neighbors don't mind the decor.

It has been hard for me to post and work mostly because there doesn't seem to be much to post about...let's see, here are the main things going on in Archer's life these days:
1. Archer still has a fit when I drop him off for daycare, but he is making progress and interacting more with the 3 other children there.
2. He got bitten by a little girl on the playground on Saturday. That was a little traumatic for David and myself.
3. We are having fun making forts out of furniture, playing with the fountains at the park, and sharing chores (see below), but it is kind of sad we can't go on big adventures during the week anymore and blog about them. I am determined to find the interesting amidst the seemingly mundane though!
I still think he gets more and more adorable by the second. :)

Thursday around 2pm we left for Charleston to go to Kate Osborne's wedding. Things really looked up as soon as we checked in to the Meeting Street Inn. Archer's face was healing, the beach was calling us and we were happy to have a few days together before school, work and daycare resumed. Plus, Dad got some great bonding time with Archer since I was in the wedding.
My favorite times as a family were when we could hit the beach. Archer's favorite time was when he was drinking vanilla milkshakes and hanging out with his best girls. He was sort of embarrassed when I dressed him up in feminine clothing for the wedding. One of David's friends asked how old our daughter was. Oh well, I thought he looked cute. It was a wonderful ending to a wonderful summer.
The wedding was beautiful and Kate Osborne Adams was glowing. We really had the best time catching up with all of our friends. I wish we could do it again!
Daddy and Archer apres swimming.
Archer made good friends with the Osborne's dog, Tuck.

This time next week I will starting my job working as a part-time reading teacher at D.C. Prep. I love the school and the other teachers and am thrilled to be getting a paycheck, but I am feeling very sad that I have to leave my baby. I have had the best year and 3 months I could have imagined. I am hopeful and confident that I will still be able to the best mommy I can be when I am working.
Here is what has been happening the past few days:
The beginning of the end of my time as a stay-at-home began with Archer and I spending a dreamlike 4 days at Windwood on Squam with Aunt Mary, Cousin Roo, Cousin Ellie, Granny Goose, Boodad, Brother Bumpson, Great Aunt Holly, Great Uncle John Mason, and Barry.
We sorely missed Daddy, but were proud of him for studying so hard. I can't wait to post a blog about what we did at Squam and post pictures, but it will have to wait a few days until I can get Aunt Mary to send me the pictures. (I left my camera at home by mistake).
Here is what will happen this weekend:
We are going to Charleston for Kate Osborne's wedding! We are making it more a vacation than a wedding and are spending Thursday to Saturday down in beautiful South Carolina.
I know my mommy still loves me even though she's working
