That Sage falls asleep all by himself! He was watching The Wild; something he requests to do many times a day. He loves it. He doesn't watch the whole thing every time, but just loves to say "wan watch the wild". So, we put it in, and he watches it until something more exciting comes along, usually just a few minutes. So, this evening before John left for work, he got him all set up and I was cleaning up the kitchen and looked back, and there he was, my sleeping little angel!
We went to the sports day today; a weekly event organized around a particular sport, baseball right now. Our boys chose instead to play at the playground and found some others who were doing the same; soon they were all off and using the walkie-talkies and having a good time.
Naturally, Saylor wanted a couple of friends to come home with us, so we made quick on the spot plans to have dinner with them.
Sean and his 12 year-old twins, Dakota(g) and Zach(b), came over and we cooked up some brats and other goodies. Heather joined us and fixed a plate to take back for Scott who was napping with River.
Before, during and after dinner, the kids rode bikes, played flashlight tag and did lots of other running around together. Stone and Saylor (Sage, too!) really enjoy hanging out with Dakota and Zach, and they are both so great with the boys! They're sweet, and patient and genuinely enjoy playing with our guys! So very cool! They are just the sweetest kids! Evidently, all that excitement was the catalyst for Sage conking out without being attached to me.
After John left for work, Heather and River came over to watch the Wife Swap I'd recorded from Monday. I knew Heather would be interested because one of the wives was Pagan who worshipped the Earth Mother, and the other family was heavy into motocross. It was an interesting show, but we seemed to have more fun watching River eat popcorn by the handfuls and try his hand at drinking out of a real glass for the first time! Too cute! :)
Then...just as they were leaving, here comes John walking in! Huh? Well, they got 'fogged out' and couldn't work tonight. He will get paid for 4 hours, and now he's cozied up on the couch watching Jewel of the Nile. Good for him, he deserves it.
We're thinking of going swimming tomorrow over in Temecula at the recreation center. Stone's been jonesing for some swim time, and since it's an outdoor pool (heated) we'd rather go on a day that's leaning towards warm. Should be fun!
