Learning to Ski with Mr. Magee

One of Rody's favorite library books is Learning to Ski with Mr. Magee by Chris Van Dusen. We've read it 10 - 15 times the past month. Finally, after reading it yet again, I told Rody, "Okay, now you read it to me." - And, he did.

I had no idea he had memorized the WHOLE book.

When Pedro got home from work, Rody "read" it to him. I caught part of it on video. This kid can't keep his hands out of his mouth, so I don't know how much of it is understandable. It's a bit long, so mostly for grandparents and aunts with patience, but super cute. I love their papa-son conversation at the end.

Urban Dare Adventure Race

This was our family outing Saturday afternoon. We ran (ok, walked) all over downtown St. Paul to take pictures of the answers to clues with Rody relaxing in his stroller. More to come. 

Pedro's brother served as our "phone a friend" - Jordan, you're the best!

I am not a consistent indexer. I need a refresher course in cursive, and I often have to give back a batch if I just can't decider the handwriting. But, I made a goal to get at least one batch complete on Monday, and I did. Yay!
