Some stuff regarding Caleb (our oldest). Man is he growing up fast...in four weeks, he starts kindergarten. Last night he stayed over at a friend's house for the very first time. He finished his 1st summer of T-ball He took swim lessons for the first time He's excited that sometime before school starts, we're going to "skicago" on a train to go to the aquarium. Converstaion: Caleb: Daddy, why don't let me get on your back like Chris & Eric? Me: I do let you get on my back. Caleb: No, I mean, why don't you let me get on your shoulders and run around like Chris & Eric?
ME: Cuz' you weigh a lot, and you're dad's a wuss. Me: Do you think Chris & Eric are cool because they let you ride on their shoulders? Caleb: YEAH! We took the training wheels off his bike this summer. Seemingly overnight he learned to actually swim (before it was mostly doggy-paddling). He told us he had a dream, and in his dream, I shot him. (and we don't even let him watch violent movies!) Anyway, I was looking through some old picture, and while I know this sounds cliche, I can't believe how fast he's growing up!
