Yesterday

Due to a meeting that I had nearby, I was able to pick him up after school at his after school program. When I arrived, I greeted one of the moms and he ran up to ask if he could play another game of Connect 4. I granted permission while I chatted:

Afternoon Connect 4: He triumphantly won this game and exclaimed “Connect 4!” and then retired a winner, May 5, 2014, 5:26 p.m.

Later, he asked if he could run a lap. I agreed, and he skip-stepped (a hop, a step, and a sliding toe on the other foot) outside just before the video below:

I was so pleased to pick him up; I had never picked him up from his afterschool program alone before.
