We stopped for ice cream today after swim lessons. Rosie chose blue moon right away and enjoyed every last blue drop.
Blaise has a new bike- with hand brakes and gears! He tested it out on Wolfram.
We visited the new Whole Foods which has a mini arcade. The boys learned Frogger.
Rosie and I took a long walk to meet friends for lunch. When we passed the library she insisted upon entering, then insisted upon doing this puzzle with me. It took at least 30 min (she had to do each piece by hand) but we conquered the four layers of the rainforest. I'm having to say no to so many of her demands that a yes sure felt good.
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!
