Eno River

 On Thursday, we went to play in the Eno River. We used the Fews Ford access, and the boys had several hundred yards of river and trails they could easily explore. I saw 2 tadpoles, 2 frogs, 4 crawdads, and tons of turtles.

Kindergarten, what?

 Micah has started kindergarten! What? How is that even possible? The first week is a modified schedule, so he went Monday and Friday. He was so ready to go and relaxed and nonchalant about the whole thing, I felt pretty OK myself.

Luke has had the hardest time with Micah's starting school. Micah is his best friend, and he misses him and feels a little left out. Pre k starts soon, and I hope he will get into the swing of it soon.

Durham Bulls

 All four of us enjoy going to Durham Bulls games. And now, a game is a good one if we get there, eat a hotdog, maybe a popsicle, and sometimes I can even keep score!

Carolina on. my Mind

Back in July, Holly and I took the kids to Chapel Hill to visit the planetarium, have lunch, and play on campus a little. I took the opportunity to engage in some brainwashing of course.

The bench under the Davie Poplar, where Mike proposed lo these many years ago.

One trend the three of us like is a trampoline gym. The whole space is trampolines! My guys are active and thoroughly enjoy bouncing all morning.

Going with friends just makes playing there all the more fun.

Luke's 4th Birthday

I can't believe Luke is 4 years old. He's growing every week, and I can barely keep up. He's spent a while more shy in social situations, but he's starting to get more open to conversation with others. He still eats bananas, yogurt, black beans, veggies, fruits, cheese and mustard sandwhiches, well, basically anything that'll hold still.

Micah and Luke helped make the cake. They're both good cooks.

Luke planned his whole day. First we went to Rise for breakfast, then we enjoyed family time all afternoon.

We had Lili and Ben (and their families) over for hot dogs and cake at dinner time. Luke tends to be rather laid back about things, for a 4 year old, so I really enjoyed seeing him have a plan for his day and ask for it. And of course we made it happen!

The next morning, Micah and Luke had a great time putting together Legos and being brothers. These guys are a pleasure to parent and I love watching them grow and spending time with them!
