Macabe found his inner sense of adventure this summer. He loves to go tubing behind the boat or jetski (yes, our latest addition to the family). He will jump off of anything or anyone to make a splash in the water. From clinging to our legs just 1 1/2 years ago, he has come a long way. We weren't sure he was the adventuresome type...now we know better.
Bennett just turned two and is talking in full paragraphs, it seems. It is fun to hear the chatter between them. Bennett's found his love for fishing and hammock swinging. He's a little more laid back than his big brother. He prefers to stay dry more often. He will take you up anytime on an offer to ride in the boat or on the jetski, but best be warned, he prefers the fast rides. He's been known to fall asleep on a ride or two.
And now that Fall is upon us, Macabe has started "Three School" just two mornings a week. Below is a story of his first day dropping him off. Let the adventures begin!

Yesterday they had this conversation at the table while waiting for lunch:
Bennett: Yes Mac?
M: Can you ask me what I'm doing?
B: Hey Mac?
M: Yes Bennett?
B: What are you dooooing?
Mac is very conversational and so far have seemed to have not hit the, "WHY?" questioning. He much prefers the "What if" questioning. "Mommy, what if we didn't have faces? What if there were no trees? What if we didn't have underwear?"

Bennett has turned into a little boy in the past few months. We definitely don't have a baby in the house anymore. Bennett is always drawn toward old Grampa looking men and to babies. however, he's also grown especially fond of his "pet bird" we've affectionately named Kevin. It is a Robin who flies into our window about 75+ times a day. Kevin just laid eggs. Bennett says good morning to him everyday and calls out "Bye Kevin. Be back." when we're pulling out of the driveway. He is putting sentences together and his favorite is, "Where'd (anything) go? Oh, dare it is! Found it!" And the swing is a favorite pasttime...he could spend hours in there for sure.
And then there's this dangerous trio! Cousin Parker is a ood bud of ours, along with all the other cousins.
We've so enjoyed our time with cousins, aunts and uncles, grammas, grampas, and visits from those aunts, uncles and Grammy/GrampS who live too far away. We love you all! Thank you for our many blessings!
