Hughes got his report card this week from kindergarten. He's doing great with the minor problem of lack of attention during group time. We've talked and talked and talked about the importance of paying attention but squirt doesn't seem to get it. He's not disruptive more of just staring off into space. Unfortunately, I think he gets this from me. When I ask him about school, he always tells me it's boring. What am I going to do?
Hughes and Banks have both started baseball. Hughes started coach pitch and Banks started t-ball. We got the schedules last night and, basically, if you need me just come to the ballpark because that's where I'll be :)
Banks always talks about his birthday - when is my birthday, is it close, this is what I want, etc. I always tell him that it will be his birthday when we are in our new house in DC. This doesn't seem to help the conversation. So, yesterday he came up to be and said, "PopPop's birthday is in September" to which I replied "yes, it's Sept. 18th". "Well, Mom, I can't go to PopPop's birthday party". I told him "I know". But then he totally through me for a loop. He said, " but Jesus can go to PopPop's birthday party and when I get to heaven then I can go". I love that boy!
Collins has a love for shoes. He is constantly bringing us shoes and then sitting down for us to put them on his feet. He has no prejudice against anybody's shoes. He brings me Hughes', Banks', mine, etc. In fact, yesterday at the beach he kept bringing me this man's flip flops that was sitting beside us. Talk about awkward!
