The highlight of the staycation was a girls only trip to the Island of Ischia for a day of relaxing! My friend Jennifer and I left behind all our men (she too has two little boys) and grabbed a ferry over to the lovely island. We made our way to Negombo Spa and spent the day testing the waters in the natural thermal pools, relaxing by the beach and enjoying a delicious lunch seaside. OK, it was the highlight for me, I'm not sure Paul would agree but since he's not here we'll go with it.
We took a week off of school in order to allow the boys extra time with Dad but got back to work last week. OK, that's not exactly true. I hadn't planned on taking the week off but apparently having Daddy around was a bit of a distraction and keeping them focused became impossible. SO, we're back to school and currently enjoying "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" as our book, a family favorite. We kicked our school morning off with some fun-
You can't do that in public school! The boys have been very interested in pretend play lately so why deny them their fun? Buzz and Mr. Pirate are working on the letter "C" and handwriting.
As for my B90 challenge I'm right on schedule, yea! We're currently reading in Psalms which is positively refreshing after the previous 3 or 4 books. After I finish tomorrow's chapters I'll be half-way finished, day 45, yippeee!
Did I mention we're having the best weather ever? This is my third summer in Naples, Italy and this is by far the best August I've experienced. It's so nice we may just decide to stay another few years. Just kidding.
Buona Notte! Good Night!
