Old Grammie

Well I have to write this down, so I don't forget it, and because I can hardly speak it.... without crying, anyway.  So Jacob is quite often speaking of Old Grammie, my grandmother, and asking about Heaven and where it is.  It's a challenging concept for a 4 year old.  A week or so ago and out of the blue he comes out of his bathroom and says, "Mama, why don't you look on a map for Heaven so we can go visit Old Grammie and Keesha."  I wish it was that easy!  Then I start telling him that she is like a star in the night sky and that he can talk to her and she will hear him.  Which brings me to last night when we were outside and about to go for a walk with Pili, when he looks up at the sky and says, "Hi Old Grammie.  We miss you!  Come back here!"  Again, if only it was that easy!  I'm not sure what else to tell him.  I have no good answers.  But it was all dark and  cloudy and then all of a sudden a ray of sun shone brightly on Pico.  I think she heard him.

Back to school and the fair!

Ready for his first day of pre-kindergarten with Miss Carlyne.
Although he quickly warmed up and was very happy to be there, he was very nervous before hand.  He kept telling me he was really tired and was going back to bed to sleep until Saturday when he had soccer. LOL!  Then his first words to his teacher were... "Guess what Miss Carlyn?  I have on angry bird undies!"
Excited for the GREAT Vermont State Fair!
He was not too psyched with this slide though... obvious from his face in this picture!

Jacob's friend Max invited him to Catamount BMX for some dirt track racing.  Jacob loved it and has asked daily if we can go back. :-)

Last week Ted and Jacob biked from the end of Old Turnpike Road to Chittenden Reservoir.  5.2 miles!

And they're off!
Made it!
When you ride through puddles and mud...
