Look at that sweet face. His soul is just as sweet if not sweeter and I am so proud of him. This is the second week in a row that he hasn't gotten any marks for talking in class (he has lots to say about lots of things) and he got all A's on his midterm report card. But I believe the thing I'm most proud of is he received three compliments from his fellow classmates. One was about being a good sport when playing games, another one thanked him for helping his friend run from the girls and being so awesome and the last one made my heart swell with pride. One of the girls in his class thanked Nathan for playing with her when no one else would. I can't begin to tell you how that makes me feel. Nathan has always been a sweet little man but knowing that he's still like that out in the world without me reminding him to behave a certain way, makes me want to do the happy dance.
Today Brandon stayed on the couch all day long. He turned his blanket into a fort and all sorts of toys, books and my "music box" (MP3 player) were his entertainment. He watched cartoons from under the fort and tried to sneak some snacks in there too. He laughed and giggled the entire day. It was a fun and lazy day for my little man.
A trip to grandmom and pop-pop's house is always an adventure. There's places to run and hide, golf carts to ride and treasures to find.
This last trip yielded Geo's. The boys have never seen these before, so they were extremely excited to see what surprise was inside for them to discover.
They hunted and dug up 8 nice size Geo's, cleaned them up and hammered away. Once the first one cracked opened there was no stopping them. The crystals inside the rocks just amazed them. Showing off how strong they are was just an added bonus.
Once they smashed them all open we decided to show them off for the world to see. So we decorated our front porch with our newly acquired treasures from grandmom and pop-pop's house.
