Cars & Track are cleaned up... Now he's sitting on his perch to survey and protect! Lol He's getting a playful show from the cats. I love when he is peaceful with nature. :) Maybe we should move to an Amish village where electronics aren't an option... this boy is at his best outdoors (when the weather is not too hot... that makes him (and me) cranky!)
As if sitting outside on the rock wall eating a lunchable wasn't enough... Add in Uncle Rick's Serenade! :) <3 it. They absolutely LOVE Uncle Rick and all of the adventures and fun things he creates for them. Later in this day, he was going to be babysitting them for me for about 5 hours, but he still spent the time with them at lunch. I'm blessed with a great brother... Thanks Rick!
I TRY to sleep until 7 in the morning, but most mornings I hear little wiggle worms by 6. The morning of this glorious event, I was laying in bed EXHAUSTED (Aaron was gone for work), and I heard giggles. Now, these giggles weren't just any giggles, these giggles meant trouble! I got up and quietly walked to the bathroom where I heard the comotion. Matthew said, "I still can't see." Joe replied, "Climb up there, I always do!"... I peeked my head in and Matthew was just climbing up on the bathroom counter. When he saw me, he just about fell down! (Reminded me of the time a police officer drive up on his motorcycle to my passenger side window and I dropped the cell phone I was talking into... even though, he had already seen!)... Our boys always keep it interesting!

"Dear McKayla, when I come to your house can we do another craft"
SOOOO cute! He learned "kid spelling" this year in kindergarten. It allows him to sit down and write, enjoy himself, and not need to say, "How do I spell......." over and over and over again. :) He's learning the sounds of the letters and I can typically figure out what it says. :) He does ask me quite often how to spell things though.
Matthew did a face plant on his way down from the Sand Dunes. He decided to take off running, but it had been so cold already, he didn't know his nose was dripping! This boy had sand in every crevice, and he ran up to do it another 4 times. I just KNEW one of them would end up in the hospital, but neither of them cried once. They did head over feet tumbles and came out giggling!
He saw pieces of wood laying around on the beach and decided to build his own house. Complete with a fence and everything. It ended up becoming much bigger than this and he built a second house for his brother, in the same fence and everything!
They got themselves dressed today...100% matching, down to them splitting up two pair of Joes shoes. I warned Matthew that the shoes might make him fall or slip off all day, but I'm allowing it. :) On the way to school, I asked how it happened. Matthew said, "I was asleep and Joe woke me up and I DON'T LIKE THAT." Joe said, "Yeah, but if I hadnt' woken you up, you'd miss out on all this FUN!" Ha ha ha
That would be a dead mole. The boys thought it would be funny ON MY NIGHTSTAND!!! I had seen Joe play "look out" earlier in the day and I noticed Matthew snuck past... So, I knew they had done something, but I hadn't heard anything break and they were getting along... so I didn't worry about it. Later, when I was putting them to bed, Matthew gave it away. He said, "Mama, when you go to bed, do you always check the table by your bed?" LOL... I knew right away to check my nightstand!
Uncle Rick came in to the house for Matthew's birthday party day. He looked around and said, "Where's the balloons?" I told him I hadn't bought any this time. He said, "You can't have a birthday with out balloons" and got in his jeep to drive in town and buy some for Matthew. he was right, the backyard was MUCH more festive! :)
For Matthew's birthday, he loves to be able to pick out his own pair of shoes. He has been a big Nike fan in the past, but I wanted him to try more options before deciding. We went to five stores before Nike,and he ALMOST bought a pair of Vans, but one of them didn't feel right and it was the only pair they had in his size! He's a picky shoe purchaser, but atleast I know he really likes what he ends up with! I was WORN. OUT. at the end of that excursion!
To get his name off the board (which gets on from bummer behavior, and means there is no video games OR tv) he has to write a note or do something to make it right. I love the report on time on this one. :) The heart in love is pretty cute too. It was tucked in my door jam when I got up. :)
