The River Teeth Nonfiction Conference wrapped up nicely this weekend. I don’t think we could have asked for a better experience (save for, perhaps, the mice… I could have done without the mice incident). For a taste of what happened, visit the River Teeth website, where I’ve posted a few videos from the panels and presentations. I didn’t know how to zoom in as I was operating the camera (boooo) but the audio is what people care about anyway, right?
This last week, Henry has started to nod yes and shake his head no, indiscriminately. He has also started to point. This is a step up in the communication department for him, even if he says yes and no to anything you ask, and it is so entertaining to ask him questions. He understands that something is being asked of him and he ought to reply. Such a delight, he is.
Our patio project is progressing – we now have the paver sand tamped and started to lay down bricks, except, like last time, we forgot that the square bricks are about a third less thick than the rectangular bricks, which means we need to fill in the spots where the square bricks go with a little more paver sand. It’s a tedious process, but it’s better than spending the next five years stubbing our toes on bricks that protrude from the patio.
