Sushi?

We went out with Gogo and Gramps for dinner which meant sushi for Grace and Eli. They were both very excited about the sushi. We arrived and sat down at the table and the waiter asked what we would like to drink. There was a slight pause as everyone considered. Eli broke the silence with a simple answer, “Sushi?”

Eli had his birthday circle today – his special day to celebrate each year of his life with his class.

3 years old today!

Eli turned three today and we all had a relaxing family day, with Eli enjoying his new toys, as well as his “big” bike. He gradually worked his way through opening gifts, playing with them as he went along, even though it was hard to contain his sister’s “open it now” excitement.

We got to fight fires together

Sister privileges

When Donné arrived at school today Nolene (Eli’s teacher) said, “Tell mommy about the terrible thing that happened today.” It turns out that he bit Grace while she was trying to get him out of a hole that he didn’t want to climb out of. Donné was talking to him about it and he says, “I can bite my sister.” Hmmmm…no not quite….and certainly not a privilege she would like.

Amazing grace

Grace has been enjoying singing and is learning to hold a tune slowly. Today she sings, “Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wrench like me!” I guess that means we’re going to have to work on vocabulary and tool names.
