Before school and activities started back up again we planned one more summertime playdate with good friends Baden and Ilse. More and more Jack and Baden can be found playing something active and rough together while Ella and Ilse are off quietly exploring or making up stories together. But, if you ask either one of these two, Ella will still say Baden’s her #1 boy and Baden will say Ella’s his #1 girl. Hard to believe they’ll both be starting 2nd grade this year—and even harder to take is that Ilse and Jack will be kindergarteners. But, they weren’t thinking of all of that on this playdate—today was about enjoying those last bits of summer.
