Back in the wood house
The kids are currently living with their mother at what Josephine calls the "Butter Cup" house, but they'll soon be living here for half the week. Their first night back here at what I'll call the "Wood House" was the other night, and they seemed really happy to be back.
Josephine continues to be a pleasure to be around. We spent a lot of time on Memorial Day playing with this weird modeling clay from Crayola. We were supposed to be coloring Ariel's Castle, but we gave up on that and just made little people.
Sam is a treat to see walking around. He struts around the house in search of things to push around the floor. Yesterday he pushed this one chair back and forth across the hardwood floor. It's a little trickier now that there are rugs upstairs. We also played airplane a lot, wherein he climbs up on my legs and goes flying around the world. Great work-out for my abs, too!
Josephine got some new books upon returning back here. Sam got some new balls. I got him his first baseball mitt as well as a new red sponge-ball. He loves to throw the ball, and loves to go and get it. I don't think he entirely gets the concept, as sometimes he begins to cry as soon as the ball rolls away from him.
Next time: Pictures from one of our many trips downtown.
