Happy birthday to a kid who has more spunk than anyone I know - he's always moving, always happy, and knows what he wants. He makes us laugh constantly and life would be so much more boring without him. Be fantastic four this year, Drew!
A party with friends at The Park!
We played every sport we could, and had a hot, sweaty, fabulous time.
Mondays are Show & Tell days in Mrs. Dixon's kindergarten class, and Evan decided last week he wanted to bring the twins! We asked and made a plan, and today we stopped by to show class the twins at 9 months old. Evan introduced them, described the cool things they do like crawl and babble, and talked about how he helps and is an excellent big brother, like feeding them, being an excellent helper to mommy and daddy, and playing and reading them books.
All the kids sat in a circle and the twins demonstrated their crawling skills; I was sure they'd get scared at all the new faces, but both were enraptured with the kids. The class predicted how many teeth each baby has, and identified differences they saw.
As we packed up to go, Mrs. Dixon had the kids recap what they'd learned about twins and babies. Later in the day, the class has creative writing, and all were assigned to write about the twins. Evan came home bursting with pride because, "Everyone wrote about the twins, and since they're my twins, my name is in EVERYONE'S journal!" It was a great morning, for sure!
Sometimes the best way to get twins from place to place is in a stroller, but other times it's better to wear them. Like when you have to go somewhere at nap time. Or when the stroller won't roll well on the terrain. Or when they won't fall asleep so you decide to walk the Target aisles. Or just when everyone needs an extra cuddle.
