> You are making lots of friends in our new neighborhood. There's a 6 yr old girl who is sweet as can be. You've really taken to her. On Friday night you went to her door all by yourself and asked if she could come out and play. My heart nearly burst. Not just at your maturity but at your growing comfort level.... a long way from my shy boy. ....happy ending: at first she said she had to stay in (it was after 7pm) but then said "Joe! my mom said I can play a little longer!!" It was a Friday summer night - rules are meant to be bent. :)
> A full day at the beach. 5.5 hours! You "surfed" on a boogie board, rolled in the waves, rafted with me in a tube, dug 50 holes and played great with friends, new and old. It was Brooke's Grammy's beach house and I love that you know all these warm, loving, Grammies.
> Sunday, our day. Relaxed. Stayed in pj's and watched cartoons without much rushing. Rode your tractor to Dunkin' Donuts like we do every weekend and then played outside, content as can be, for a few hours while mama read her book near by. Like me, I think after a busy weekend of friends and socializing, you enjoy some time for yourself... you talk, make up stories, sing a lot, and just enjoy some time to be an introvert. There is nothing wrong with that and I'm grateful we have the type of schedule that you have time to cool down and re-energize.
It was just perfect. Life is so good with you.
