Oliver loves being outside more than anything, even more than reading books, which is saying a lot.  Here he goes from subtle facial gestures, to pointing, to trying to just knock the door down himself, since mommy isn't getting the hint that it's time to go outside right NOW.


I volunteer in Joey's classroom since joe has the day off, and the two youngest get to hang with daddy.  This week they had a field trip to the laundromat!  They were big helpers. :-)

He actually threw down what he had in his hand when i asked him what he was doing, when a moment before i saw him shoveling one handful after another into his mouth.

Another caught in the act moment.

Are you seeing the theme here?

My Street Gang

One of the MANY reasons i love being a mom of three boys- driving home alone tonight after dark i got so excited to hear the loud horn of a diesel engine coming up from behind that i passed my turnoff for home just so i could race far enough ahead to find a good place to pull over and record the train on my phone so the boys could watch it the next morning. (longest sentence ever?)  There are so many more little things in life that i take time to enjoy that i never even would have taken a second glance at if not for the little people in my heart.
Today i'm thankful for trains, hail, legos, steep dirt hills, pipes attached to high ceilings, and cars on the road that resemble Chick Hicks and Lightning McQueen. :-)

This giant stick continued on with us for the rest of the walk

He's his uncle Eric's nephew

He finally loves him
