One of those days

Today is one of those days--I am tired and sick. The kids are tired and sick. This equals lots of impatience and crying (by the boys and by mom). So while my two boys take a nap, I am going to remind myself how much I love them and show you how amazing they are.  Just what you wanted, right?  Maybe not, but it is definitely what I need.

Dax is too smart.  He is constantly amazing his parents with what he knows. I feel like I don't spend enough time teaching him, but somehow he knows all his ABCs (capital and lowercase) as well as their sounds. He loves the alphabet and reading. Here is a video of him "reading" The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.

While Mark is also a smarty pants, he is an athlete as well. He loves to play any sport. In his last three soccer games, he had scored at least 6 goals. But every time I take the video camera to a game--no goals. We have dubbed this phenomenon the "Curse of the Camerino." Anyway, he finally broke the curse and played well. I just love to watch him. He loves it! Here are a few highlights.

  1. Holy crud how can Dax read that whole book? Chocolate, pickle, seriously. Alice really liked that although she called him josh the whole time we watched it.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I was absolutely floored when I received that letter from Grandma. I wonder how much of our family history is "history" and how much is folklore...
    Love,
    Sandy
