It was awesome.
There have been lots of fun stories lately, so I thought I'd offer a March update.
We totally lucked out with a great trip to Texas early this month, and scored some warm, sunny days to visit a park (or two) every day. The boys LOVED being outside again without being all bundled up. We can't wait for the spring to come here!
We started swimming lessons again, this time in separate classes. They are able to pay better attention, but Charley says that he's "lonely" without Jax. It is nice to have some one-on-one time with Mommy during the brother's class, though.
Jackson is on imagination overload these days. He has the most amazing imagination. He creates entire stories, and they last for days or weeks. He created a card game, "airplane," complete with rules. It's lots of fun to play. (He almost always wins, though.) And don't try to act like his imagination creations aren't real. If you don't let him throw his "sucker" in the trash, or land his airplane on the runway, it's meltdown city!
Charley continues to show his "leadership potential" (some might call it bossy). He knows the rules, and he wants to be sure that everyone else does, too. His best friend at preschool, Brian, still speaks limited English, and we're all rather certain that they're good together because this way Charley can just talk at him for hours on end!
We're still waiting to see what happens with a new job for Mommy before we commit to "German Emergency" preschool again this summer, but we really hope we can swing it.
