Trick or Treat!

"Trick or Treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!"
-- Jason, a.k.a IRONMAN, Oct 31, 2010, thanks to his father.









Jack O' Lanterns


Today was Halloween! You are more into this holiday than any so far...we've had lots of fun doing all the traditional things, but you really put your Daddy through the ringer with Pumpkin Carving. We found a patter for Ironman Jack O' Lanterns in the store, and since he's your very favorite super hero I just couldn't resist. Especially since I knew Daddy would be assisting you with the actual carving. I think you boys did a wonderful job, and I KNOW you had a great time ;-)

Matthew,
We started feeding you "real" food. You don't like it.

Work

Jason,

To my great excitement/anxiety/pride/sadness/fear/loneliness you started school this fall. You love the materials--I dare not call them "toys" for fear of being firmly corrected by the Montessori Directress--and tell me you are going to "work like Daddy." Very serious business, this work of yours! Most of the work doesn't lead to something tangible to show us, so you are especially proud of the few items you bring home at the end of each week. I'm going to apologize in advance because--unlike my own mother, who has suitcases full of every single piece of paper I ever produced at school--I don't plan to save all of your work. (Sorry mom.)

However, to ensure future history books have a record of your earliest achievements, I will do my best to hang on to a few representative pieces. I'll start here, with the very first work you produced in an academic setting. Prepare yourself for genius in action:
