Tonight, Alexander and Mary were asked to go clean up Mary's room. A major part of it was putting all of her books back. They came out very proud claiming they were done. Elizabeth asked them if mommy would think that they did a good job. Immediately Alexander started stomping back to the room with his pouting face on and says "Ahhhh... We have to put them in size order?!!" This is funny because that's how mommy orders all the books.

I was reading with Mary and she came to the word "where". She said, "what?" I looked at her and said, "No that is where. What is w-h-a-t." She thought I was asking a question and said, "What!" She looked at me as if to say, "Come on dad, that was too easy."

I stopped by Marcus' house on the way home from class. We were all hanging out. All the sudden Delaney asks, "Unckie, why are you here?" I said that I just wanted to hang out. Wyatt speaks up and says, "I know why I'm here. To be the best version of myself!" We were all blown back.

What did the chicken say to the cow?

"Mooo Moooo." Because he wanted the cow to understand.

Riley is starting to listen to and understand instructions. You can ask him to go pick something up and put it back where it goes. It's really neat to see him complete a task. He gets so excited and claps his hands furiously. Saturday, February 09, 2013

Trip to Blacksburg

We recently spent a weekend in Blacksburg with Elizabeth's crew from her days at Virginia Tech. In all there were 6 families with many young ones running around. We spent the time cruising around the campus and a few crazy hours in the upstairs of Hokie House.
