The Buddha and other stories.

Some more pictures from this weekend:

Eliana has a Buddha like her big brother Z used to have:) He was famous for his Buddha belly!

Samuel loves to climb and jump and is so active!

This afternoon, Ben headed out to a group he goes to at church on Tuesdays and as he was pulling the door shut, he said, "Bye, little chitlins!" To which Eliana turned around and said, "Bye, Wittle Daddy Chicken!" haha!

Today was Joke Day on the ABC countdown and Samuel shared this joke: "Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Dent who?
Dent you hear me knockin' at the door! (in Scottish accent:)

And he came home saying, "Mommy, why was 9 afraid of 7? Because seven ate nine! (seven eight nine)" haha

Zakkai just loves to play sports with his daddy! He really thrives with positive attention and especially from his daddy!

Recently, Ben was explaining to the boys about graduating and how he wouldn't be in school anymore; he would be a teacher soon, etc. Zakkai's eyes filled up with tears and his lip trembled and he said in a quavery voice, "You mean you won't be our daddy anymore?"

We have no idea what gets in his head sometimes but Ben quickly reassured him. It was heartbreaking and a little funny all at the same time.

Hope your week is beautiful and spring-like, too!

Eliana has beautiful hair! She is so cute with her words, and has a lot to talk about! So adorable...
Samuel looks very tall in the pictures, do you think he is going to be tall like his daddy? Is he taller than the children his age?
