We did take some bath pictures of Hallie early this week, but that post will have to wait a little while at least. Erin continues to keep me motivated with funny/sweet stories of our kids via email. Here are three more short stories:
As we've previously mentioned, Will looks out for Hallie - at least
while they're at school - like it's his job. Last week their
classrooms were outside together, and while Will was playing on the
play structure with friends, Hallie got her finger stuck between two
slats of the picnic table. She cried out (mostly in frustration - she
wasn't really hurt), and when Will heard Hallie's cries he ran to her
from across the play area. After hugging Hallie, he walked up to her
teacher and asked/demanded to know, "Why is she crying?!". Miss
Aubrey explained to Will that Hallie had pinched her finger, but Will
didn't believe her - he replied, "I think she's cold. Button her
coat.". While Miss Aubrey buttoned Hallie's coat (Miss Aubrey told me
that Will's "order" was just too cute not to follow) Will followed up
his first instruction with, "But don't button the top one, because
that might make her uncomfortable.".
Will: "Where did that school come from?"
Erin: "Construction workers built the school with cement, bricks, and wood."
Will: "No, I think God built it."
The word "sister" came up on a reading flash card, and "sister" is not
a word Will immediately recognizes. He had trouble sounding it out,
so I tried giving him a hint.
Erin: "Think about Hallie..."
Erin: "What is Hallie to you?"
