Slumber party sliding

They stuffed themselves with pizza and ice cream.  And more pizza sometime between midnight and 7am.
They played way too much Minecraft and giggled way too loudly.
They didn’t sleep and jabbed all night long.
And they wrapped the SLUMBER PARTY FUN up with stair sliding, all together, besties stuffed in a sleeping bag 🙂

"NO"

Charlie LOVES being outdoors!  Total, 100% boy!
This afternoon, after being outside playing with the neighborhood kids, I asked him if he needed snack.

He couldn’t even poke his head inside!  All I got was this and “NO,” and he was off to skate and bike and tennis and play and run and basketball and be MY BOY!

Pancakes at the Fire station

… flapjacks for funds?
… sausages for safety providers?
Whatever you call it, it’s darn good breakfast for a great cause!

Charlie's writing homework …

What the hell is wrong with people?!!
Charlie was assigned homework.  Okay.
An adult (Andy) read pre-written sentences to Charlie, who was to dictate to the best of his ability.  Okay.
HERE was his first prompted sentence.  NOT Okay!

“MOM GOT CUT”!?!  What the hell?!
