I’m posting some pics of the boys and horses from June:
Some Pictures from the Lego Party in Salem. Everyone had a great time. Even Nana and Ashton 😉
I asked Archer if he wanted me to paint a picture for his birthday. He said he wanted the Millennium Falcon. While I was drawing it, he came up and complimented me on it. I thanked him and said, “But you can’t see this because it’s for your birthday.” He looked away and said he didn’t see it. Ha.
A couple days later he saw it again and said, “I can’t wait to get that for my birthday.”
“Get what?” I asked
“Nothing. I don’t know what I’m getting for my birthday.” Haha
Atley is going to be a storm trooper for Halloween this year, and Archer was going to be Kylo Ren. Anna bought a Darth Vader costume as she couldn’t find Kylo, and asked if that’s okay.
“Yes! I want to be Darth Vader so my brother can work for me!” – Archer.
4 days after we arrived at our new house in Oregon, and Archer was playing in his new Lego room under the stairs. The latch for his room was just a normal deadbolt. Today, the deadbolt failed and got stuck in the locked position, locking Archer under the stairs with his Legos. Anna heard him screaming to get out, but quickly calmed down.
We hadn’t had our Internet connected yet (because CenturyLink is inept), so I had to work in town at the coffee shop. I found a L-shaped screw driver and passed it under the door to Archer, who unscrewed the face of the deadbolt from the inside.
I was very proud of my boy for staying so calm and figuring out how to unscrew the deadbolt.
They aren’t always good brothers, but when they are, they are so cute. Here’s Archer and Atley trying to do the “Superman” that daddy does:
(I’m spying on them on the baby monitor in the play room.)
