From Daddy: We’ve been in Colorado Springs since July 4. Today, he tried a Ninja Warrior course at Springs Trampoline Park. He didn’t do as well as expected and the high altitude tired him out. Click above or https://youtu.be/rHq737usanQ to see if he made it up the Warped Wall.

With the announcement of American Ninja Warrior Junior, he’s been inspired to train again. Above is a video from two evenings ago or click youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kf1E_Xd2gzI.
From Daddy: I’ve missed my family. There are in Los Angeles now, but they look like they are having fun!
From Daddy: It’s been a tradition! Every year I take photos of him before the Golden Gate Bridge just before a camp day at the Bay Area Discovery Museum.
This year, he added the Robin pose.
Also, he has wanted to record a video each morning for Mommy:

He has learned some new skills in swimming class!

From breakfast this morning, he wanted a bowl of Corn Pops with milk. I wasn’t even aware that we even had Corn Pops in the house, but I allowed it.
Later, he told me that he didn’t like them and moved the bowl to the sink. I moved it back to the dining room and reminded him that he asked for them.
Later still, while I wasn’t looking, he poured it out into the sink on the towel (why was a towel in the sink?!) and sneaked back to bed.
So, eventually I went to him and said, “I have a problem. The problem is that you misbehaved and poured out your Corn Pops in the sink on a towel. Were you supposed to do that? (No.) Did you know that there was a towel there? (Yes.) Anyway, my problem is that you misbehaved but if I don’t give you another breakfast, you’ll be hungry. So here’s my idea: You pay for the Corn Pops with your own money and I’ll give you another breakfast.”
He readily agreed to the deal. “Deal. How much do Corn Pops cost?”
I said, “I don’t know; let’s find out!” So I searched online. A box seemed to be $3.99, so I charged him a dollar. He agreed and enjoyed his next breakfast of corn flakes with milk and a strawberry Pop-Tart. (Mommy would later find it funny that the computer had an open browser window on Corn Pops.)
Apparently he thought–maybe the box suggested it–that the Corn Pop would taste like kettle corn. Which Mommy says that he doesn’t like that much anyway.
Later This Evening
American Ninja Warrior!
From Daddy: One week ago, we were glad to have his friend over for pizza and American Ninja Warrior. We loved the Pipe Fitter and Go Drew Dreschel!

As part of the Shared Schoolyard Project, the schoolyard at Dianne Feinstein Elementary School opened to the public on weekends starting on Saturday. After we dropped on Mommy at the airport on Saturday, we visited and enjoyed the schoolyard! Click below or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qm9Fz5gIzsQ on your mobile device to watch his message to Mommy!
Later, we met up with friends (and a dog) at Midtown Terrace Playground for play and the adjacent Sutro Reservior for scootering.

Three Days Ago
The league was divided into two sides for free-throw contests. He did well as did his side! Click above or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFTlzaIRpko to watch.
From Daddy: I dropped him off at school on Monday morning and he ran somewhat ahead of me. Before he entered the school building some fifty feet ahead of me, he pointed back toward his school yard’s play structure. I didn’t understand what he was trying to tell me at first, but then I noticed that the muralist painted a blue dragon over the weekend!
