Taking a break from catching up on older posts, here are some pictures of recent outings and fun.Here is a picture of Jason in his balloon hat, sword and scabbard. We attended "Natick Days" which was full of fun. Here Jason and I are behind a fire truck. It was a nice day, sunny and a light breeze, and the boys had a great time eating ice cream and having lots of fun.
Kevin has been an understanding brother. Especially as Jason has garnered a lot of attention at home and at school with his loose tooth and now missing tooth. Here he shows us his big beautiful smile.
This one is from last Friday and a visit to Lowe's. The boys are driving a Lowe's NASCAR race car shopping cart.
In other news, the boys had their first sleep over the next day, Saturday. They did very well sleeping over at Mimi and Papa's.
Here are the boys at play. They are scuba diver, repairmen. Note the goggles, masks and power tools. The rocking chairs are overturned for repair.
We've been reading books and talking about the Tooth Fairy in order to be prepared.
I arrived at preschool to pick up the boys and Jason ran up to me excited and breathless, eager to tell me and show me all about his tooth.
He was brave about the whole thing and very excited. You can see here that he's giving his best grin in these 2 pictures.
Later that night, the Tooth Fairy visited and left an envelope under Jason's pillow. In the morning, I asked Jason if the Tooth Fairy had visited. He ran into his room and looked under the pillow and exclaimed, 'She left me a message!"
Jason tore open the envelope and discovered some stickers and a dollar bill. He has carried the stickers and the dollar bill around the house ever since.

On Saturdays we will frequently have in-house concerts. Jason likes to set up his drum kit and will also play my keyboards. Kevin likes to play a variety of instruments ranging from a train whistle to a kazoo to a harmonica. He also likes to play Joe's violin while Jason likes Joe's 6 string guitar.
What motivates them to be so good for something they dislike so much? Check out the huge green race car lollipop in Kevin's hand. Now THAT is motivation.

Kevin ran to me and jumped up into my arms when I arrived to take them home. Jason ran over and then ran back to play a bit more before leaving. They had a snack of chocoloate Cheerios and Scooby Doo gummy snacks in the car. Jason asked if there was anything else to eat in the car. Aside from the stale Cheerios on the floor mats, nope.
They both said they had a great day and played with lots of kids. They learned a new song about a hot dog sizzling in a pan which Kevin sang to me while our corn muffins baked. Cute song. Yummy muffins.
