I haven't talked a lot about William recently. Why? William's doing AWESOME. He's really taken to school and comes home happy every day. He started piano lessons in June and just LOVES it. He never argues about practicing, in fact he will often ask if it's time yet. At this rate (and if Evie continues in her lazy ways) he will be playing better than Evie in a short time. I imagine that she will find someway to blame me for that when it happens.
William is also playing his first season of soccer and seems to enjoy that as well. I now find it amazing that I ever worried about William and how he would handle school - although I'm sure the shine will wear off eventually. But so far, so good, I'm not complaining.
So last night Matt and I were watching Castle and I heard a door creak upstairs. 9:45 pm and William was still up. He wanted some warm milk ('cause, you know, he didn't eat his dinner and now he's hungry). I walked him upstairs to tuck him back in and this is what I found on the floor:
A mess of q-tips scattered all over the place in front of his dresser, and the box they were in next to it with the 'pattern' he was working on. Here's a closer look so you can fully appreciate his methodical ways:
Just picture a small boy quietly organizing q-tips into precise alternating rows all by the light of his lava lamp. He makes me laugh, and shake my head at the same time :)
In other 'news' I received a fabulous blogging award from Shawn at Seriously and Val at Sew Not My Day last week! JennyMac at Let's Have a Cocktail (love her!) created the 'I give good blog' award and I'm honored to have been thought of. This is an easy one to pass on, no lists to make or scores of people to link up. Just choose 4 bloggers you feel 'Give Good Blog' and let them know about it!
