Isaac took a basketball class at the YMCA. He liked it for the most part, but didn’t really look forward to it each week. I wonder if our boys will ever develop a bigger interest in organized sports. It was amazing to see the improvement he made in just 5 weeks!
Ethan requested a Super Mario themed birthday party. It was a fun theme to work with. Warren made the cake and did a super job!
Ethan loves the special attention he gets on his birthday. To him, it’s SUCH a big deal that it’s HIS birthday. He woke up extra early and asked for waffles, then off to school he went. He was a little bitter that I actually made him go to school on his birthday! I can’t believe it’s been eight years since we welcomed our first baby into the world. *sigh*
I gave Lincoln the chore privilege of playing with the hamster while I cleaned the cage. I heard giggling and then, “Mommy, Mommy, wook!”
Melissa and Steve live just 15 minutes from Warren’s parents in Knoxville, but it’s been nearly six years since we have been to their house. Warren’s parents house is the main gathering place. It’s easier for the 8 Eimers’ to load up and visit the rest of the large bunch at Grandma’s place. But, it was a nice treat this year to have a cook-out at Melissa and Steve’s house. The weather was perfect and the kids had such wonderful time playing together.
Lincoln loved the chickens at Aunt Melissa’s house! He was very patient and gentle with them.
