Where does the time go? It has been over a month since I last updated this space. Hopefully these next three rather brief posts will highlight the major recent events.
But he was happy that he completed this work and now we go on to elementary math. Okay, not really, I think that we have a bit to do in the way of fractions first.
This little guys is pretty ambidextrous. We'll see if he even favors a side. He is wearing gloves because you always practice with gloves on. It is easier to handle the stick without gloves, but you'll never ever play without gloves on, so you better know how to do that fancy stick work with gloves on. Little D is also wearing a helmet to protect his big noggin because he is pretty accurate with the bounce back. That is that black vertical trampoline there on the right. You throw the ball to hit it, it will bounce back, and you catch it. It is like playing catch with yourself. Except little D can't really catch yet. So, when he throws the ball, it comes right straight back at him and hits him in the noggin. Native Americans started playing this sport with rocks and nets on sticks. Now, they use hard rubber balls with no give. It hurts when that thing hits you. So, D wears a helmet.
We ask little D if he'll play lacrosse like his hyung-a. He says, "no, I play soccer." I don't think that he really wants to get out there on the soccer field anytime soon, but we'll see.
We already potted up her amaryllis plants this year. She was gifted 4 bulbs over the last 4 years and a few made babies this year. So all together she potted 9. She is fortunate that her bedroom window faces south and has great exposure.
