Life in South Dakota has been a blast. Here's some of our life right now.
Heather’s Dad and Step Mom adopted infant twins 3 years ago. So being here both Sydney and Aubrey have a couple friends to play with around their same age. This also means they have a tons of toys to play with and Sydney has taken a liking to a lot of them. Recently I was bringing Sydney to bed and she insisted on bringing not only the stuffed animals in her hands, but also a backpack full of them and oddly enough a toolbox stuffed full as well (yes you heard me right, a toolbox). To say Sydney has enjoyed being with Heather's family would be a gross understatement.
Last week we went to Heather's sister Regan’s basketball game. Sydney was cheering for her aunt with the following cheer; “Come on Regan! You can do it, I promise!" Ummm, we still have some work to do in teaching Sydney how to cheer at these events.
Tonight Heather took Sydney with the rest of the family to a Good Friday worship service. Not wanting to chase Aubrey around at the service I decided to run an errand and to take Aubrey to Target. This afforded me the opportunity to visit some good old memories. Back in the day Sydney and I would go to Target and I would get the $1 popcorn and pop combo and share it with Sydney as I pushed her around in her stroller. When I got to Target I found that the $1 combo is now $1.50 which was disappointing (that’s a joke). What wasn't disappointing was Aubrey and I getting some time together while enjoying some popcorn.
I also did something tonight for the first time. I walked down the boys toy aisle (and not just for myself this time). It was the start of my realization that I’m having a boy. Now I can buy G.I. Joe's and matchbox cars and I won't be alone in playing with them. That's it for now.
Much love all,
