Shades

I picked up a pair of sunglasses for Mr. Man last week since he and Gibi are going on walks every day (he didn't get to go on that many walks when I was home during the summer because there was NO WAY IN HECK that I was going to pull my 24 pound child in a wagon in the 100+ degree heat, but I guess that's why grandmas are so much better than moms, right?!?!)


Anyway, I wasn't sure how he'd react to having them on, but he ended up LOVING them. He wouldn't even let me take them off his head to remove the little sticker on one of the lenses.


I'm loving that his personality is coming out more and more every day as are his little quirks and likes/dislikes. He loves his stuffed animals and on this particular day he insisted on taking his big brown bear along for the ride (as well as an empty yogurt cup - ha!)

On an unrelated note: I'm headed to Pine Cove today for our High School start of school retreat (even though we started last week... oh well!) and will be gone until Friday night. I just looked at the schedule and am already tired - "team activities" (which will probably involve dodgeball, some kind of relay race and other misc fun) until 11:30 each night and breakfast at 7:00 each morning. Yikes! I'll be in a cabin with 10 freshman girls, which is nice because I didn't have to bother packing shampoo, a hair straightener or blow dryer. ha!

All kidding aside, this is one of my favorite times of the year and I love getting to bond with the kids outside of school (even if it is disgustingly hot). I'll be back on Friday with lots of pictures!
