August 20, 2010: Wyatt told me that he needed me to buy him some stuff for a secret project he was going to start working on with his buddy around the corner. He started rattling off a bunch of items, but I told him that it was too much to remember so I needed him to make me a list. I asked him to do it in his best “Kindergarten writing” which means he tries to figure out how to spell words on his own based on the sounds he hears in the words. This list is what he handed me. Translated, it reads:
- Attack Machines
- 2 Goggles
I was too scared to ask what the project was.
August 21, 2010: Zach was home and not working on this fine Saturday morning (yay!), so our whole family walked over to the farmer’s market. We bought the chard and tomatoes he’s holding here along with a bunch of berries and some late season peaches.
August 22, 2010: In case you were wondering — no, Batman doesn’t take off his mask to eat breakfast.
August 23, 2010: For the last day of summer vacation, I took the boys on a trip to a far away park in a ritzy area. The playground here is pretty awesome, but the real attraction for us was the splash pads. It was doubly awesome for the boys when we arrived because the fountains or the drain or something was malfunctioning and it flooded the sandbox making a tiny shallow lake and a beach. Super fun for all the kids!
August 24, 2010: The first day of school! Wyatt lines up on the playground to go into his new first grade class.
August 25, 2010: Augie loves to chew on lemon wedges.
August 26, 2010: Our neighbors had a guest hamster at their house, courtesy of the little one’s preschool, and Wyatt and his friend had fun playing with it.
