Rolling through the summer

Hi. I’m Grace Evelyn Janes. Mom says summer is rolling on by us. I’m not sure what she means by that, but I think it means we’ve been rolling around alot this summer. Since I’m 3 now, I know lots of things like that.

First, I know we went rolling in the car on a really long trip. Dad said it was going to take a long time to get to St. Louis, and it did! But when we got there, we rolled to the zoo, science center, and the children’s museum. We also rolled to a big party that Mom called a family reunion. I had lots of fun playing with all the other kids and swimming in the hotel pool!

We’ve also been rolling this summer to closer places. We went to visit the farm and I got to go fishing. We’ve rolled in the car to the Des Moines zoo, and the Ames aquatic center. We also roll to the library, tennis lessons, and gymnastics class each week. And, when we go to meet Daddy for lunch sometimes we go to my favorite store (It’s called Hy-Vee) and I get to roll through the store pushing my own little cart or driving a silly cart that looks like a race car. We even rolled in the stroller with Mommy in our first 5K race last weekend.

Considering the fact that this post is happening in July, that probably indicates how busy things have been lately. Never-the-less, we had a lot of fun this spring, so we decided we had better share all of the events up until this point. Keep an eye out for further posts in the coming days.
