The boys loved learning binary from Mike. Their new favorite way to tell someone they love them is 19! (If you're counting binary on your fingers, 19 is the same as the sign for I love you.)
We discovered #5's passion for performing. He stood on this chair singing for over half an hour, interrupted only once when he heard the garage door open and ran, screaming "Daddy!", to the door to greet Mike. Have I mentioned the hero worship Mike gets from #5? Every morning when I get him up he asks if Daddy is home. When I take him up for a nap, we pass a wall of family pics...he finds Daddy in each one, but doesn't concern himself with anyone else. His first request of the morning is either "bottle" or "Daddy Shower". Every time the garage door goes up, he runs--screaming with ecstasy--to the door to welcome Daddy home. #5 LOVES his Daddy!
We had our school holiday parties. #4 is decorating his house (or maybe his tongue) while #5 gets out every toy in the room. I also got to bounce between #s 1, 2, & 3 parties, but I had forgotten my camera. :( Lots of fun to be a celebrity to the kids! I'm sure that's going to fade fast.
We made more hats, of course. #2's making pretty fast progress these days!
