Here's the line up....Jack (5), Abigail (6), William (4), Aden (3), and Suzy (1) And actually they played really well together! It went well. Not well enough to reverse the V and have another baby. But well for having 5 kids 6 and under.
Jack and Abby are in the same class at school. Here they are waiting for the bus. They never lack for entertainment when they are together. Abby found a caterpillar and started to talk to her little friend. When she asked Jack if he wanted to hold it...he hesitated but took it. I HAVE NEVER SEEN JACK TOUCH A CATERPILLAR! He was truly trying to impress the the lady friend. In the above picture he even looks as if he might be enjoying holding the insect. However he has never been one to try new things (including food, holding pets, etc), then again I don't see him at school around his peers as much. I think I got a little picture today of him and a positive aspect of peer pressure. Maybe I'll invite Abby over next time we have green beans for supper. Because green vegetables in general cause Jack to go into full "I'm not dying on this hill" mode. I have no idea whatsoever where that boy gets his strong will or dislike for certain green foods. I for one love green beans. However, don't even think of putting me within sniffing distance of salad or the like.
quote of the day:
When picking up the kids tonight from Amee's house, William comes down from being upstairs and reports....
"the ladies won't let us into their room"
I find it funny he called his 7 year old sister and her friend.... "ladies"....but wow what a ladies man.
