Last week Cannon was been gone, and I was feeling totally selfish in being the only grown up at the dinner table to witness the hilarious conversations that happen there. Here is part of one that seemed to go forever. I WISH I could have stopped it in the middle and recorded the whole thing. I never knew how much I would love having dinner with second graders.
I hope Jackson's future wife doesn't mind not having a say in her children's names.
Jordan is holding the red light saber in this one, and Jackson is holding the two sided green one. Again, their pets (which are actually the stuffed animals they sleep with) have come to the rescue. Anakin is watching from the bottom left.
Here is the groundhog after seeing his shadow.
This is currently my favorite. I found this on the kitchen counter after the kids were in bed and laughed out loud when I read the caption. Last week we had a day where we got about 15(?) inches of snow, and when the bus brought the kids home, the steep hill into our neighborhood too much for the bus to handle. The kids had to get off the bus and hike home (about a half mile). When they walked in the house, Jackson had snow covering him, including inside his coat ("But I DID zip up my coat! I just fell. . .") and Jordan said, "I think that was like walking to the promised land!" Sydney refused an offer for a ride and walked home happily, finding the biggest snow drifts to walk in the whole way home. They enjoyed hot chocolate. Then this picture. Jordan is frowning. And who wouldn't? This was the blizzard of his life!
