Today is a nice, rainy day in the cities. After the hot summer, it's nice for a change of pace, although the rain renders the outdoors off-limits (anathema to toddlers, I know). We had our first ECFE class today, and I think we're going to have a good time. ECFE is early childhood and family education, a public education resource unique to Minnesota. It's basically preschool for toddlers with the parents involved. I think it's going to be good for Isaac to learn to share (yet again), learn some new songs, and be exposed to some new age-appropriate activities. I'm enjoying being in the room with him because it gives me a new perspective on how Isaac relates to other kids. He's got some learning to do...he seemed like the bully of the class today, pushing other kids out of the way to get to the toys he wanted, grabbing stuff out of the other little people's hands. I love his energy and enthusiasm for play, but I can see we need to work on sef-discipline and sharing!

I thought I would show you some pictures of the days we spent with my family in NC...again, these are mostly of Isaac. But we were all there!
AJ doesn't think Isaac makes enough noise yet...teaching him how to use the pot as a drum. Thanks, bro. :)

Hopefully as close as my son ever gets to being a pothead.

Allie and Julie enjoying Zack's dancing. It may not look like much, but I guaruntee you he's going to be a force to be reckoned with on the dance floor in a few decades. :) This is his signature, "The Squat Dance".

AJ is teaching Zack how to be cool like him.

I had to document an actual "sitting still" moment. Isaac's about as active as they come, but he looooves to read (I wonder where he got that from?), and his favorite book right now is "Where Is My Mother?" That was actually Vance's favorite book at this age, which is too cute. Here he is in Granny's old chair, getting a little time to chill out and read.

Hey Terri...
I love these pictures. They remind me how much I miss your family!!
I know I've been terrible at keeping in touch - but I do want you to know I think about you and pray for you often!

Sorry I missed seeing you when you were in town...I will send you an email soon, cause this comment is getting a little long :)
