Little Composer

Alex and Teague regularly have “dance parties” which are much more just making loud noises. During tonight’s dance party, Alex got out his guitar and composed his first song.

Family Treat

While Mom Showers

Alex unmakes my bed and sets up with books. Madison takes a nap right outside the shower door. Teague comes in periodically to check on me and offer me my towel.

New House

When we sold our house I immediately felt stress-free. When we sold our house, Wade immediately became stressed about buying a house.

Opinions

I’m a little sad that Alex’s opinions about his clothes are becoming so strong. It took everything I had to get him dressed for church (and I even agreed to the jeans). Then the second we got home he was upstairs changing into something else.

Letters

Alex has really struggled to learn his letters. We tried to work on them last summer (when Teague learned his) and Alex wanted no part of it. I thought he just wasn’t interested. But then school started and he would come home with a letter stamped on his hand and have no clue about it’s…
