The weekend in pictures

Spur-of-the-moment trip to Nattie and Popeye's house

learning to drive

taking a walk

practicing his smile on command

popeye buckled her in. Hmmm. Ah yes and the new violin-a gift from Popeye that he has yet to put down. Even to sleep.

I did a double-take when I walked by the monitor tonight. I asked Sean to look and see what he thought Ty was doing.

But then we heard him. "Reading my Bible...I love the Lord. God this is Your day."

And I will now melt. I've totally succeeded at being a parent.

Until tomorrow when it all falls apart again. Like Emmy often says, "It's like the movie Groundhog Day." Every day we just start over and they have no recollection of the day before. In this case I hope she's wrong.

I think I might have been the one who buckled her in. Can't remember. I know at least once yesterday I did it. Sorry. Good thing nothing happened!

What a great reference to Groundhog Day. We love that movie. Wise woman, Emmy. I totally agree that you have arrived as a parent- too bad you have so many years left to screw it up!

Awe...Mary, that's super sweet stuff! Just what I needed to read today! Oh, and Thursday sounds great... will somewhere around 9:15 work?
