Ode to My Inner Spaceman

I was eating my lunch--

a lovely thing of salad and fruit

with Woodside Kitchen's* own dressing upon it--

when one of the people I love most in all the world

leaned over and kissed my cheek

and whispered tenderly in my ear:


I thought


And it wasn't just

the Vidalia Onion & Summer Oregano salad dressing

of which I was thinking.

All by My-say-elf

                                     Wade got custom-made ear plugs for swimming this summer.  
                                     Which is why his cartoon characters also now wear ear plugs.

                                                            Meet Gep.  Wade's new friend.  
                                                           Who is Gep?  I don't know.

                                                     I drew the top picture.
                                                     I thought Wade was copying it.
                                                     Then I saw the snout and whiskers.
                                                     I don't know anything about that either.

Ha Pe Fhr Dae
                                           The spelling wasn't perfect, but the sentiment was.
                                           It made Father's Dae very Ha Pe.

Words are everywhere!

Montessori.  Very.

Books + Wade = Happiness

We both are loving Numicon math!

And we all love Grandpa!

Summertime Strategies

Wade picks flowers for Mommy from her own precious violets on the windowsill.

Randall and Chris make a how-to plan for manipulating Dad (and leave it where Mom finds it).

Mom gets them each their own library card and hopes to redirect the flow of creativity.

Oh no, they designed a monster!

Help! Help!
Back to the drawing board...

Hmm.....okay.  Let's just go outside.







Oh yeah!
Much better.
