Took the littles to the Museum of Science and Industry to play. The electric trains are always fun to watch. Not sure if Rosie is watching trains or making faces on the glass.
Saw the big tractor.
Gus wanted a pic by the combine. He had a great time, as you can tell by his face. :)
My fave pic is this taken after we arrived at our car. It was lightly raining as we walked out the door and in the three minutes it took to get to the car, it started pouring. We were all wet rats but it was an adventure.
Gus had a great first day of school. He was excited to go. He picked out his outfit to wear. He painted a picture and stamped on paper. That's about all I know. :) But he loved it!
Blaise was happy to have a brother at school. See how he's making a thumbs up? He's got this totally under control.
On the school steps with his little Curious George backpack. Blaise held his hand to go in and walked him to his classroom. He helped Gus put on his indoor slippers and put away his lunchbox. Awwww. Such a good "Captain of the kids."
After school we went to our favorite treat spot for the big banana split.
As you can see, Blaise does not always have saintly behavior! Blaise's name, however, comes from a saint whose feast day we observe every February. St. Blaise is known for blessing throats, as he once saved a young boy choking on a fish bone. He also is the patron saint of wild animals. Perhaps he can intercede on behalf of our cat? We expect that our Blaise will have lots of spunk, just like the saint he's named after!
