The first thing I have to report is that Aidan had an accident in the Little Library in the apartment complex across the street. (Who has accidents in libraries? Apparently, my son!) Another boy pushed him and he fell into a book shelf, leaving a cut above his right eye. He had to get seven stitches and boy-oh-boy, he was mighty proud of the fact that he did not cry! (He didn't cry because his father promised him an ice cream if he didn't!)
Jordan continues to be in love with candles. His eyes light up when I have the candles lit on the table at night or storytime before bed. The best part for him is blowing them out. "Mommy, can I go whoooo now?" He is also doing many little art projects around the house which also warms my heart. Drawing, glass deco, finger painting, coloring, it's all good.
My husband went to see Justin's teacher yesterday. The brief summary is that our first born son is very bright but not working up to his full potential yet. Any other mothers out there that can relate to this?
One of our fun events every spring is the cherry blossom walk. This year we were able to do it just as the blossoms were falling off the trees! It looked like it was snowing in spring!
The other fun event was a surprise trip to the Lake park beside the library in Sejong city. We walked around the lake and then the kids had a blast playing in the sand for a good 45 minutes! Sandcastles and moats were built, a turtle came to life, and then disappeared into the sand, and the boys managed to get the sand out of their shoes before getting into the car! Miracles do happen! (Can you hear an amen?!)
In other news, the boys have lost their privileges in regards to screens for a while. It's amazing how much better everyone listens when they are not all individually absorbed in their own entertainment! They actually can hear the Mommy Voice! This indulgence will be saved for an hour on Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
