Working in the yard

Bobbie Jo took Max to the Dr to get him checked for strep throat (he's got it), and Lily and I worked in the yard.

We put on her new, too big, hat

and slid down the slide a few hundred times

I mowed the lawn and she helped in the garage.

Once the garage was swept, she hit a few balls off the tee

25 Pounds

I have no idea what Lily weighs. Probably somewhere around 25 pounds.

For the last few months Bobbie Jo has been on Weight Watchers. I found this in her car today.

Congratulations to my always beautiful wife on your outstanding success. We are so proud of you.

The Tigers end their season

Lily was not happy when I told her of the Tiger's disappointing loss last night.

Lily has found her imagination. And she's been very busy showing it to us in the last few days.

Yesterday, Lily brought Bobbie Jo a plastic baby that somehow found it's way into our house. It never had any clothes, and its back was scribbled on with an orange crayon a few weeks prior. She wanted the baby wrapped in a blanket that she carried with her. She cuddled the newly swaddled newborn, kissed it on the head, put it on the floor, waved goodbye, and walked up the stairs. She must have been going to work.

The day before, Bobbie Jo found her 'washing things'. She had a piece of turkey "lunch meat" (a round piece of felt from Max's sandwich making set) was dipping it in the cat's water, wiping down the wall, the table, and the floor. While initially disgusted, it was quite impressive.

Last night she brought me a small empty pot from her kitchen. She reached in, grabbed some invisible morsel, and crammed it in her mouth. We added some salt, and some bananas, and played for quite awhile.

I know that Max had, and still has, an amazing imagination. It awesome seeing it present itself again with Lily.

3 years of Boy Days

As we have been doing for the past 3 years, the first Saturday of the month is always Home Depot Kids Workshop. Our first time was exactly three years ago. It's always easy to remember because it was Fire Safety Day, which is always in October.

Here is the post from that first day: Boy Day

And here we are this morning

With one pin every month, you can see we've built a lot of stuff (and it's all in a giant box in the basement if anyone wants to buy poorly constructed wooden toys).

Sleeping Monster

This one fell asleep on the couch, woke up and ate an entire can of cold raviolis.
She's definitely mine.

(Second) First Day of School

Since Max's "First Day of School" pictures ended up in the bottom of the river, it worked out well that we decided to move him to a new school; thus giving us another chance to take his picture.

Max is now attending Knapp Charter Academy, and we've been extremely pleased with the few interactions that we've had with the school. We will really miss Max's teacher from Ridge Park, but are confident that this move will be the best for him in the long run.
