Our dear friends the Bos' came to visit yesterday. We had a great day filled with riding bikes, swimming, and playing on the swing set. Thanks for coming Suzi, Peter, and Isaiah!

Three School

Today was a big day. I took Jackson to meet his teacher, Mrs. Mulder and to visit his preschool classroom. He was a bit shy when we arrived holding tightly to my hand and talking very quietly. He warmed up quite quickly once he saw that in one corner was a big play kitchen and in another, a big pile of trucks. He was much more interested in playing with the trucks than talking with the teacher...big surprise. His first day is right around the corner, September 2.

Trouble's brewing

Unless they boys are sleeping, when things are quiet around here, it usually means some sort of trouble is brewing. Late last week Dave had been in the basement with the kids; he came up and had to leave for one reason or another. I was on a roll getting things done upstairs and didn't really want to go down to referee. I was a little nervous leaving them down there alone, but I thought I would let them be and intervene when necessary. I folded a load of laundry, no problems. I cleaned up the kitchen, no problems. I dusted the main floor, no problems. In fact, hardly a peep. I should have known better...I snuck down the stairs, just to spy...Jackson was playing with cars and Will had found a bag of goldfish crackers (I'm pretty sure it was at least a quarter full before he found it). He was just having a grand old time, sitting in the chair, eating away. Bailey was perched on the floor right by his feet, eating up the crumbs that Will was scattering everywhere. He polished off the whole bag...did I mention it was almost 9 at night? He must not have liked what I cooked for dinner...surprise, surprise!

Monkey See, Monkey Do

It always seems like time is going too fast; especially family time. It is hard to believe that our boys are 3 and almost 16 months. Where does the time go? We have so many memories and stories. But, how quickly we forget the small stories of life. Take today for example...Jackson was supposed to be napping, a habit he's unfortunately giving up. Dave went in to get him after an hour or so and much to his surprise, Jackson had emptied the shoes out of his closet, had a different slipper on each foot and a baseball hat on backwards so he could "be like Daddy is". This hat trick started a few days ago and since most things at our house are "monkey see", "monkey do", Will, of course, needed a hat of his own. Jackson helped him out and this morning, they were playing in the family room with their hats on just like Daddy. The only problem, Will needs a Red Sox hat!
