From Daddy: Valentine’s Day was a lovely warm day in town…which led to horrible traffic. We could not make it to swimming because traffic was horrible; we probably would have arrived after swimming class ended. So we trekked across town and waited a long time for lunch at the boy’s choice of Olive Garden where he had spaghetti, chicken, broccoli, breadsticks, and one salad crouton.

After a Valentine’s Day late lunch, we shopped at Trader Joe’s, Valentine’s Day 2015, 3:33 p.m.

Still, he was pleased by his own patience while we waited for lunch, and we were pleased with him as well.

At home, we enjoyed dessert: We shared a red velvet bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cake that I bought the evening before.

The next day, the boy and I had a great breakfast (two pancakes, one piece of bacon, and one hard-boiled egg) at Denny’s with Uncle Albert. Before breakfast was served, we played a fun game of The Scrambled States of America, the boy’s current favorite game.

Then we had a family walk in the neighborhood and a snack at Sheng-Kee.

This Morning

Adults had the day off but he had school, so Uncle Albert and Daddy walked him to school. He had a great time and the walk was seventeen minutes.

Since we arrived early in his opinion (i.e., before 8:15 a.m.), he asked if he could show Uncle Albert his favorite part of the school, which was the handout area. He saw first-graders in the yard and a handball game in progress, so he joined the game (click below or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Y_YXYiZV-g to watch).

I put away his backpack and signed him into the before-school program. Later, he convinced me to play a game with him (which I won).
