Indio has also been very persistently requesting a 'hi-inja' costume so he can do his 'ka-latte' moves lately (his enthusiasm makes up for his mis-pronunciations.) A neighbor just so happened to be getting rid of a bunch of costumes and now we have our very own ninja roaming the yard. His tiptoeing is cartoony and his sneaking around is accompanied by giggle fits, but his ninja sword is tucked into the back of his costume and his moves are amazing.

A Little Pic-a-nic, Boo Boo

Last Sunday the sun was shining, birds were singing, plants were starting to sprout and it felt like spring (glorious spring!). Truth be told, this winter has been mild, but it is at this time of year spring cannot come soon enough -- I've got seedlings to kill and guilt to have over not working out more -- so you can appreciate my rush to welcome in the warm weather.

The boys and I trekked over the Kuhlrock household to play outside and have an impromptu picnic. This was Elan's first outdoor picnic at the little kids table. I think he nailed it:

Photojourna.list: Marley Pictures [Indio]

Guest blogger Indio (age 4) selects pictures from his camera he wants to post and a (usually) random story to accompany his selections. 

I asked him to tell me the name of these pictures and he chose "Marley", so that is what you get when you ask a 4 year old a question like that.

Indio's story for today (as dictated to me): Once upon a time there was a guy named Indio and he went everywhere. And people gave him rides. And then Indio ate eye cheese, made of eyes. Googly eyes and cupcake monsters eat some earths. And he did it...and the googly monsters' icing hair was made of chocolate and they taste like - mmmm - cupcakes! And there was lots of tasty plants and monsters said, 'It tastes too spicy!' Monsters don't like spicy things.

Photojourna.list: First Day of School 2014

First Day of School: 2014. New school year, new school. This year Indio headed off like a seasoned pro to his new school at Samuel Preschool - ready to make new friends and play hard. The school is very impressive, I know this because when I picked him up he was gushing about all the things he did and one of the first things he said was, "I already learned everything today." Not bad for a first day on the job.

(Story on the weird bear picture: The school had the bear and balloons set up at the entrance to welcome the students. I hurriedly snapped a couple of shots and didn't pay attention what-so-ever to how Indio was posing. The boy poses are all his own, no matter how hard I try to get no blurry motion and a nice smile. When I loaded the pictures on the computer I thought this one was hilarious...and creepy. I had to include it.)

Gotta Love His Decisiveness

It's Friday at 5pm and we've got no dinner plans figured out. On the car ride home for the day I ask Indio what he wants for dinner.

  • Mashed potatoes
  • Corn (on the cob so he can make a corn cob pipe afterward)
  • One - make that two - tacos
