Ten days ago Nels went to his first, and so far only, day of pre-school. A stomach bug kept him from going last week, and a cold kept him home today. Gretchen, if you're reading this, I feel your pain.
Willem has been working on getting some new teeth in. This causes a bit of loopy face-making.
The boys got a bath. Sadly, this is more noteworthy than I'd like to admit.
On the other hand, happily noteworthy is the fact that Shaun got Nels a trailer bike. Here they are giving it an inaugural spin. (And no, we haven't bought a helmet yet, so there's been no riding since. Despite the fact that we live in Idaho, we don't condone riding without a helmet.) If you look at the picture full-size you'll see that Nels is wearing his pajamas because he just got out of the aforementioned noteworthy bath.
Here is Willem's face upon seeing his dad and brother ride by.
And, finally, here is our family after having enjoyed a repast of smothered fries and New Orleans popcorn shrimp at the Hyde Park Street Fair. The fact that the fair features four hours of drum circle over its weekend-long run tells you all you need to know about it. I include this photo because it features the look that Nels refers to as "Naughty Eyes."
We've got exciting things coming up this week, including Nels's 4th birthday, a heart check-up for Willem's ticker, a visit from Me-ma (that's my mom as she is known to her grandsons), and a They Might Be Giants concert. So stay tuned for more Stuff We've Been Doing.
