Today Jacob asked me a question that I never really expected to hear. He held up todays picture of the day and asked, What’s this Daddy? I couldn’t help but laugh, we’ve all see the posts online saying our kids wouldn’t know what things were, I just didn’t expect it so soon. I asked him what he thought it was and he said it was a video tape. I think it’s a pretty good guess, I just have to show him what a real video tape looks like, if I can find one.
Today Jacob got a short chess lesson from my Dad. It’s the first of what we hope to be many lessons. Jacob really seems interested in learning to play chess and I’m so glad that my dad is able to teach him. I might have to keep an eye on these lessons, I might pick up a few pointers.
Today we celebrated Nate the Greats birthday. It was a great time and I took tons of picture, that I hope one day to go through and share, but for now I’ll leave you with a picture Melissa captured at the end of the day. I think it speaks for itself.
All summer long I have watched you grow up, you are becoming so independent. Until something happens and you want your Daddy (or Mommy). Of course even when you want us, you aren’t always ready to tell us the real reasons. When you fell from the bouncy castle it was hours after you hurt your self that you would admit to us that you were in pain. Insisting even as we were driving to the hospital that your arm was fine. Of course now we know you broke your collar-bone and shoulder.
Today Melissa picked up a bone for Ruby and boy is she one happy doggy.
Today we have a 4 pack of pictures of Jacob that Melissa took while out with the kids before Violets first ballet class of the new season. I wanted to use a picture of my little dancer, but tonight she insisted on no pictures. So Jacob will have to stand in.
It seems that anything white needs to be coloured by our little artist Violet. This is her bunny that her god father gave her when she was just a wee thing. So it was a bit of a surprise when Violet brought it down showing off the smiley face she drew on it. Of course I’m pretty sure it’s washable marker she used, but I’m not sure I want to see if it would come off in the wash.
Today Jacob and his Nan went on a little adventure. Jacob was thrilled to have his face painted like a Power Ranger. It’s an amazing job all they had to go from was Jacob Power Ranger Key.
Tonight I have a picture of Ruby that I took as she returned her Frisby. She really enjoys chasing that sucker down We must of spent close to an hour playing catch tonight.
It’s been a crazy week so much so that I realize that I haven’t shared a picture of Violet’s Baseball Trophy and her Team Picture.
