Sam's graduation from Malcolm Cole

Sam's last day at Malcolm Cole was a beautiful event. He had a good time there, and he was so pleased. 

He hugged his teachers, Cynda and Ashley. They were both great and I hope he looks back on his time there with fondness. 
Holding up his certificate! Such a proud and happy little boy.
Proud mother with family! 
This is the last time we measured against the mermaid. Josephine just at four feet, Sam a bit below. This was a bittersweet moment for me because this shows how big both of them are getting. But, with another major milestone under our belt, I think the kids are having a great childhood. I can't speak for Amy, but I'm having the best time of my life being their father.

Bizarre Kid Dialogue #74672282929

Sam: When I grow up, I'm never leaving Charlottesville. I'm staying right here, in this house, with you. (Pause) Or maybe I'll live in back... or I'll just move in with the guy next door. But I'm staying here, till I'm like... 65 or something. An old man.

Josephine: Not me! I'm going overseas! I want to live in England or California!

Sam: Nooo! You can't do that! You have to stay here! You have to live with me so I can have children! I need you to have my babies for me!

Josephine: You can get another girl for that. Anyway, we're brother and sister, Sam. We're not supposed to have babies together.

Sam: But I need a baby I can kiss! You have to stay!

Josephine: You don't even know what I'm talking about. But anyway... I could SEND you a baby.

Sam: Yeah, yeah...

Josephine: Like, if I have twins, I could send you one of those. I hope I have twins!

Sam: Yes! If it's a boy baby, would you send that one to me?

Josephine: Okay, yeah, I'll send you the boy one.

Sam: Mama, where's my heart? Right there? When I grow up, I'm going to get a tattoo over my heart that says "ka-chow" and "I love you" with a love poem, or a Star Wars love poem, if I can find one...
