Lunch time is always exciting! I've been lucky enough this summer to be able to get home most days for lunch with Aaron and Aiden. It's been a priority since that has been the only family meal of the day since Aaron's been working the evening/night shifts. Thank God that has FINALLY been changed, and now he's home for dinners!

The one moment that stands out the clearest though, is when I came in from walking Harley, I had already set Aiden up on the computer to do Readeo with Aaron. When he had done 2 books, Aaron offered to sing the Pony Man for Aiden. Of course Aiden listened and rocked with me, but the sweetest moment was sometime while Aaron was singing, Aiden reached out and touched the screen where Aaron's video was showing. As if he knew that was about as close as he was going to get to him. So sweet, and so sad- and after I told Aaron what he was doing, we both teared up. We are definitely over this whole trip thing, and are ready to all be together again!
All in all, a wonderful day!

...on this kid...sometimes surprises me....ok- lots of times, surprises me...like when this picture came through the phone when the boys were grocery shopping. Aiden has just grabbed the bag of broccoli Aaron put in the cart, puts it under his head, and says, "Ah- a soft pillow for me."
Where does he get this stuff?!?
I don't know, but thank God for it!

It's March and we're at the beach! Aaron has his weekends on Wednesday and Thursday so we try to take advantage of the evenings to do fun stuff together. Today was a perfect evening for a trip to the beach, as the blessing of it all is that it's warm enough to splash in the water and chase the seagulls on the sand. And of course the best part is to say goodbye to the sun and thank God for another beautiful day!

What a fun morning! All the stops were out this time, since Aiden has really started enjoying (and getting!) some of the humor of these books. Aiden's got his One Fish, Two Fish shirt on, and of course he had to eat breakfast on his Cat in the Hat plate! Green eggs and ham was read while we enjoyed the real thing- Spinach Egg Casserole and Bacon was our "ham!" Thank you, Theodor, for all the wonderful rhymes and times of fun reading and laughing and along with your books-
and Happy Birthday, our well-loved Dr. Seuss!

As you see, Aiden is a very safe 3 or 4 feet from this little creature. Yes, we are talking to a snail. And yes, Aiden is quite disturbed by him. This was such a funny moment because at first he said hi, as we walked by. But then I told him to look closely at the snails little eyes as he was watching us pass by. Oh no, that's when it started. As soon as Aiden got close enough to see those wiggly eyes popping in and out and up and down, he said very clearly, "I don't like that snail!" But then proceeded to sit down and tell the poor snail about 10 times, "I don't like you snail. I don't like you looking at me snail." And on and on, all the while the snail is hardly moving, and Aiden keeps scooting further and further away.
Too much funny in all this serious snail talk!

Aaron is having so much fun with his underwater camera- and it's a great motivator for Aiden too! He's getting more and more comfortable with going underwater- and in this shot even braved a little smile- funny, crooked little smile- but still a smile!
Today was a super fun pool day because it included splashing time with Hallie Grace!
Best buds in the making!
