On Sunday, I took Samuel to a small antique shop near us and he had a great time talking to the shop owner about all the different little action figures he had for sale.
It was nice to go out with him by myself, and let him do something he enjoyed, because this happens so infrequently these days. I’m really thankful that Stephen has been home so much (not thankful for the broken wrist, but ya know) because he’s been able to take the boys to do things that I haven’t been able to do.
Yesterday, the boys went to Joshua’s podiatrist appointment while the girls went back to the park we visited on Saturday.
Elizabeth did a few things for the first time. She smiled at a small group of girls who were laughing and playing on the slide. 🙂 She also copied a different group of girls who were climbing.
At one point, she ran and then abruptly stopped and turned around. She looked at me and said, “Mama! Come here.” She has never acknowledged me in public like that before so that was neat. 🙂
