You remember those warm, sunny afternoons in the backyard with your grandpa? You remember how bubbles made you feel all giddy inside, especially when you tried to pop them? My son feels the same way. Here is a video of just that.

Family Worship

I occasionally pull out the guitar and sing a few songs with my family.  I think it is a healthy practice, and I love that quality time.  The other day, I was playing around on the guitar and I pulled out my new portable audio recorder so that I could catch Caleb singing with me.  He was sitting on my lap, grabbing the strings, and trying to copy what I was singing.

Even though he doesn’t understand volume or tone, I appreciate the effort.  There will come a day when he won’t sit on my lap and sing at the top of his lungs, so I will take all the chances I can get.  Forgive the raw quality of the recording.  A professional I am not.  To God be the glory.

Fort Worth Train Show

Please enjoy this video of our trip to the Fort Worth Model Train Show. It was a Saturday morning, I grabbed the paper and started reading through a few articles when I stumbled across this event happening that weekend. I said, “I know what we’re doing today!” and we hopped in the car and went. Those are the best kinds of trips. Not planned, not expected, but greatly enjoyed.

You’ll notice in this video that when Caleb is playing with the “Thomas and Friends” train set, he is making motor sounds with his lips. He must have done that for at least 30 minutes straight while he ran around the table and played with the other kids. This is one of those qualities that Shari designates as “all boy”.

Grandparents take note, the “Thomas and Friends” train track was the most fun he has had in a long time and I plan on building him a table for the Oval track we bought him that day. Expansion sets are welcome.

A Labor Day Out

The temperature outside is finally lowering to a moderate 90+ degrees.  Here in Texas that means get out there and enjoy it while it lasts.  On Labor Day, that’s exactly what my family and I did.  It was a little bit windy, but my 16 month old son is still learning about this old world and everything is new and exciting to him.
