This past Monday, Jonathan had his first taste of cereal. He liked it very much, as you can see from the pictures. He is eating like a champ and no doubt will be gobbling up his share of the grocery bill in no time.
Andrew begged me for a taste, so I let him have some. I don't think he liked it very much...what do you think?!
Tomorrow night for dinner we are having "Killer Shrimp." This is a recipe that was introduced to us by our pastor in MA. It's a restaurant in L.A. (that's Los Angeles, not Lower Alabama) and all they serve is shrimp and bread, and your choice of beverage. But it's....you guessed it...KILLER shrimp. I hope I don't see that face on Andrew again tomorrow night.
This weekend is supposed to be around 80 once more. I guess I should break down and paint my toenails. I was hoping to let them hide inside socks a little longer but I can't stand to leave my flip-flops in the closet when it's so warm outside! Every single day, we have a conversation about when the pool is going to open. There's really no point in telling an (almost) four year old that it's not summer when it's 80 degrees outside. It really makes no sense to him.
Here's a recommendation for you...the readings of Winnie the Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, as recorded by Peter Dennis. They are available at www.blackstoneaudio.com, and sometimes you can find them at www.amazon.com or www.booksamillion.com. He has also recorded When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six, but we don't have those yet. Anyway, he does a great job recreating the original Pooh stories, before they were all twisted up by Disney. We've come to a whole new understanding of Eeyore, for one! These CDs are almost always playing in our van, and David and I frequently find ourselves entranced right along with the kids.
