it's really a gazillion photos a day to get the one good one i'm shooting for, but that's ok. i like to take pictures. and it's a really good habit to take the camera out every day. i "see" more when i take the camera out. i remember more too. especially if i take the time to blog about it. so let's blog awhile, shall we?
june 2nd: here we have day one of vbs. the theme is outrigger island. right up g's alley. he was so tickled with his new shirt that he wanted to put it on as soon as we left the building, but covertly so no one would see him nakid. this is the charming picture he drew at vbs. that thing on the bottom is a "lecter" eel. it has jaws in its throat and it will "lectercute" you if you touch it. he was obviously having sweet jesus thoughts at vbs. he did sing a little abraham ditty while we were at target, so there's hope he's learning something. not much though. he's not partial to learning. today was day two and he told me on the way home that he didn't like learning about god. he'd rather play. i think god understands though. at his age, he's not into learning at all. just ask mrs. vicki. she didn't get him to learn many abc's or 123's this year either. we're hoping to hit that learning streak next year.
june 1st: we finally made it back to the ymca after an extended absence due to laziness. i got my workout in and then we tried out the pool there. g's addicted. after doing the tiptoe dance around the deep section for an hour or so, he finally decided it was safe to brave the froggie slide. i'm thinking i'll have to give up my soccer mom dreams and trade in g's jersey and cleats for goggles and speedos. the kid is half fish i swear. he LOVES the water. could be genetic since his papa and uncles are all fishermen. here he is with his new "lecter" eel and barracuda. i'm thinking this is where the vbs picture idea came from. kid's focused on what he's interested in. he knows his fish. hey! there's an idea! i need to tell g that jesus was an awesome fisherman. that would catch his attention. at vbs yesterday they talked about jesus being a baby and g thinks babies are for girls. a fisherman would be much cooler to his little boy way of thinking.
guess that's it for now. have another lo ready to share tomorrow. see you then! :D
