Moving onto to more blessedly mundane tales...
Math as art: Repeating pattern line tree
|So one day Aaron decided to play chess against 3 different computer engine at once.
He did this 3 times.
He won (all) 9 games.
So we might be concerned about double (or triple?)
screen time in this picture, except...
He is playing 3 games of chess!!!
|Aaron playing with Abigail nicely!!!
Abigail really likes Aaron.
|Aaron trying to do his handwriting in half of the normal time.
He appears to be remarkably good at multitasking.
|Abigail is such a daddy's girl.
|Abigail cuteness time
|He wants to read the LOTR so bad he keeps pulling it off of the bookshelf.
This week he decided to just make up his own version.
|Andrew helped make lunch
|Andrew reading the LOTR with ease now
|Andrew the Viking Warrior
|Aaron volunteered to hold the baby for a baby sister
reading card picture.
|Chess brothers watching a lesson
|Aaron spent most of his day reading SO MANY BOOKS!
He lost count.
Yes they were super easy for him,
but he had so much fun and read so much.
|And surprisingly it was Andrew who spent most of the day playing chess
against Play Magnus.
|Alexander drew a lot on Choose Your Own Adventure Day
|Dinosaur by Andrew
|Triceratops coloring sheet by Andrew
|Do you like my hat?
Aaron has been doing a lot of funny things
(like wearing odd "hats" and "juggling")
to entertain Abigail.
|Grandma Mary Book Club!
|I love the juxtaposition of this picture.
This is Aaron age age.
He is wearing footed pajamas
reading the Illiad with his dad.
(I love that he both loves his glow in the dark PJs and the Illiad!)
|Playing with Scooter the ostrich
|Alexander is quite a fastidious table setter.
He loves to remember the napkins and get everything just right.
"Mom, this looks like Thanksgiving!"
the senses and how they can adapt.
|We'll keep the brothers pic for our family's reading cards,
but we need one for siblings too now!
|The boys made viking longships for a history project this week.
|And here is one Andrew drew based on an instruction page.
I think it is really good for a freehand drawing by
a 6 year old boy!
|Alexander also wants more reading card stacks with him in them.
|So we decided to try to get pictures for an emotions stack.
|These aren't the best ones. But they are still pretty great!
|We were also super happy to get some great videos of
him reading sentences/stories really well
while he is still 3!
