Four Years Old !

The Incredible Digit Boy turned four years old today.  He's grown so much and has changed so much in the last year.  It's hard to believe the time goes by so fast. 

For his birthday lunch, our son requested that we all go to Chuck E. Cheese.  We ate pizza and there were plenty of games.  Both the kids had a great time and it was fun to watch them enjoy themselves. 

Once we got home it was time for naps.  Not only so that the kids could be rested but also so that I could make the Incredible Digit Boy his birthday cake.  He requested a dinosaur theme so I went a little overboard (as usual) and included a lake and lava-erupting volcano.  Luckily, there were plenty of plastic dinosaurs around the house to decorate with (after being washed, of course).  

Next on the agenda was a few gifts.   A variety of race cars and much needed clothes (he grew over an inch in the last three months) from his lovely grandparents on the East coast.  

And a wonderful book from his Godfather and Auntie in New York.  This book has some really incredible artwork by Basquiat and lovely poetry by Maya Angelou.  Plus, it has dinosaurs(!) so our boy was very happy.  

It didn't take long for him to say he couldn't wait until he was five.  To which his father and I both responded very quickly that it is very nice just to be the age you are.  He didn't seem very convinced.

First Day of School

The Incredible Digit Girl is officially a Kindergartner.   She attended her very first day of elementary school today.  I dropped her off, went with her into the classroom and got her all settled in.  She even got to ride the bus home.  Since we're the first stop from the school it wasn't a very long ride.   I asked her how she liked school.  Her reply? 

"Recess was awesome!"
