Tie Shoes

And one morning at 7:13 David declared he needed to wear his tie shoes.  These were hand me downs from a neighbor.  They are two sizes too big and very worn.  But he insisted and being too big and not being able to tie were not good reason to wears his Velcro shoes.
And so off to school he went.  A quick text message to his teacher to explain.  And she texted back... lots of perseverance today. I asked him to wear them tomorrow too... he almost has it.
And then there was no going back.  On day two he learned to tie and has never put back on those Velcro shoes.

Down Time

Over Easter weekend we also had intentional down time.  We watched our neighbors dog and the boys loved playing with her for the weekend.

Gram and Grandad gave the boys gift cards fro Christmas... we decided to use them on Good Friday.  One went to McDoanld's.
 The other Sonic.
Both of these boys LOVE to order and pay all on their own.
 Lots of outside time!

 And a glow in the dark bath... except that the sun was still shinning through the bathroom window.

David's Second Kinder Field Trip

Greg took off for David's second fieldtrip of the year.  David was so excited his Daddy was going!  He even changed his shorts so that he matched his Daddy.
This trip was to The Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center.  Greg took his plant and bird field guides and they were set!  So much fun exploring these two have together!


 David has been wanting a bagel so Greg stopped for a treat on the way home.  David loved having one on one time with his Daddy!

Brotherly Love

When Angie was working in the kitchen on dinner she heard...
"David I love you... Adam, I love you too."
And then she turned around and saw these two playing Legos together.

It is so hard to believe that our baby boy will be 4 in a month from today.  He is growing so much.  He knows his letters and numbers and loves to do math problems.  He still enjoys being outside, playing trains, and swinging.  But his favorite his is brother.  He loves David so very much.
This little boys is so sweet and loving and even when he tries not to be -he is happy.
Happy 3 years 11 months Adam Samuel.  We love you so much!

And just to compare - David at 3 years 11 months!
