Summer is here. AND. I. LOVE. IT!
Despise the icky weather, we are enjoying the here and now. And here is a post so I don't forget the Right Here, Right Now! Don't mind the random statements/lists. I just want to get stuff written down.
Griffin is loving Play Net and Preschool. On Monday, he wanted to know if he could make a journal for home like he has at school. I wish I could bottle up his enthusiasm for school. HE LOVES IT, and I am loving it too :) He gets so excited to learn something new, and I just pray that he stays this way forever. I want him to be challenged in school, but more importantly, I want him to want to be challenged.
We talked today about going to see the movie Mr. Popper's Penguins. Since he likes to read, I am going to pick up the book first to read aloud. I hope to then take him on a "date" to see the movie.
Believe it or not, Griffin has also started asking for nap time. I think perhaps he is going through a growth spurt---either that or he really likes his new bed! Regardless, he has taken a nap the last three days, and it hasn't messed with his bedtime.
I am also discovering more and more that Griffin's Love Language is Words of Affirmation. He just beams when I tell him how proud I am of him. Oh, and let's not forget his devotion to church and learning about God. Just yesterday, he told me, "Mom, did you know that God knows how many hairs are on my head?" And tonight, when I commented that perhaps God forgot it was June (because of the crummy weather), he replied, "Mom, God knows EVERYTHING (insert eye roll). He did not forget it was June."
Grayson started gymnastics at Jam Hops this week, and man that kid has energy. He doesn't even finish one event before he is racing off to another station. Thankfully, Grayson is the second person in the class, so the two little kids have free reign of the place. He makes me nervous because of his lack of fear, but he is super fun to watch!
Grayson has also started to take a liking to The Letter Factory. He is constantly asking to watch it, and he has now learned to identify a few letters as a result. Lately, Grayson loves giving hugs and kisses to EVERYTHING. He even kisses his sippy cups goodbye. Not joking. But hey, I'm not complaining. I have been on the receiving end of a lot of those hugs and kisses.
Because Griffin is signed up for activities Monday through Thursday, Grayson and I are getting a lot of one on one time. And man, I love making that kid smile! He is a ticklish little man, and you better believe there have been lots of hugs, tickles, cuddles, and kisses. And verbally, he is growing leaps and bounds. There isn't an ounce of fear about him lagging behind anymore.
So here's to me remembering the here and now!
