Day 335 - Date with Dylan

Dana asked if I could keep Dylan for a bit and so we went to the local McDonalds to play.  The kids loved playing with their baby cousin.  I'm not sure who was more excited about it - Dylan or the big kids!

Day 327 - Before & After

My glasses look so awful.  I've tried all kinds of things with my dishwasher and nothing seems to help.  Today I decided to wash them by hand instead of putting them in the dishwasher.  Guess what?  They were perfectly clear and sparkly afterwards.  Hmmmm.

Day 315 - Snow...

Snow causes mixed emotions in our house.  Today was the first snow of the season and the kids were SO EXCITED!  They ran out (in their bare feet and short sleeves, nonetheless!) into the backyard and began to dance about.  How do the adults feel?  Eh, less than excited for sure. 

Day 314 - A Note

Carsten wrote this today: "Dom loves Mr. Freeze, especially when we defeat him!". I like 'ufet' for defeat best! ;)

Day 305 - Reading Continues...

Every day he's getting better and better.  He really struggled with 'the' because, in his words, "It doesn't make sense!"  He's right, it doesn't!  My friend suggested teaching him the blend 'th' and that helped tremendously!
