The boys had another full day with Doug. It was a bit of an unusual day because they had to go all the way to Winchester to school, then all the way back to Strasburg for Grayson's speech therapy after lunch. They ended up just staying at home in the afternoon. Gabe got a slow start in the morning and we found him all curled up under blankets on the couch.
As usual, there was lots of outside play. We have potatoes coming up in the garden, so that was a fun thing to check out. And while you are up there you have to be on the look out for the garden snack that lives in the wall.
The older boys continue to be very into riding their balance bikes. I think they may very well be ready for 'real' bikes by the end of the summer. Gabe is getting pretty good at holding his feet up and coasting for 10-15 seconds at a time. Grayson is also getting much smoother in his riding.
Reece was out of sorts because he didn't get enough of a nap with the crazy schedule, so he actually ended up going to bed early. But not before he let us know he really thinks he can use the potty. He grabs his pants and signs "potty!" and takes off running for it. He ended up a running around with a naked butt for about an hour and at one point he decided he had to pee so he ran out the back door and peed in the grass - then went back inside to play. Not exactly what we want, but at least it wasn't on the carpet!
When Reece was in bed the boys worked on putting the final coat of paint on Grayson's new bed with Doug out on the porch. They are so cute being little helpers :)
They have all been so busy lately. I still can't believe how big they are getting and how much they they want to be like / do everything their Daddy does.
