Father's Day







An early and quick breakfast for him complete with hot sauce (and chocolate for later), before running off to see a new house for my Grandparents. We couldn't get over how possible it is to change houses but still have the same home. It felt just right. And there was time with another little one - my niece - who I just don't get to see enough.

This weekend, a trip to London to see their grandparents, and a trip to the park with time to wrestle with dad (it's so much fun to see them scheme together). Long days right now, we're ready to finish the school year so that my own little own doesn't have to cry and tell me she's just so tired anymore. We all are looking forward to a break.

When did it get to be Summer?




But we're glad it did!

He likes to drink peppermint tea in the mornings.
 

On his and his sister's birthday, we always decorate the kitchen table.

                                     
                                    He covers his mouth lately when he's excited or surprised.

                                    

                                                        He loves Lego, he loves Star Wars.
                                       He's read all the books the library has which give away every
                                          secret except one last surprise in Return of the Jedi.
 


                                                   
                                                           He loves pop on his birthday.

                                                               Hot dogs are always good.

                            
                                            And even when you'd think the day couldn't get
                                         any better, he's always waiting and looking out for more.

              
                                       He's 7 now. It seems so big. I have to get cross when he reads
                                       and ignores us (but I love it). He's learned so much french at school
                                       this year he's almost leaving Scott and I behind. He acts silly
                                       and goofy to make Rose laugh whenever she cries. He loves to
                                       cuddle still, but mostly at home. And Bingo, the stuffed Chocolate
                                       Lab we gave him for his first birthday and he hasn't slept a night
                                       without since.....there still isn't a better thing for him in the world.





And we're back and we're older!

I've been away so long that both William and I are a whole year older! No excuses, just simply haven't felt much like doing it. It happens I guess.

I had a great birthday, one that thanks to family, great friends and new work friends made me feel like a kid and properly spoiled all day, there was a lot of Vincenzo's going on.

 And the night was spent getting ready for William's party the next day. There were Light Sabers and cupcakes and a Death Star Pinata to make, most thanks to Scott. Five boys from his class came. It was wild but it was perfect, right down the the Padawan braid (Star War things) William had me do in the side of his hair to the unlimited amount of cheesies Rose consumed as her concession for being the only girl.






Wild but perfect, seems to be a theme these days.
