I had to follow up my previous story with this: Jacob just came into the kitchen and told me that his plane was "going to the moon!" This was part of a much longer paragraph of which I also understood, "stars, dark, plane broke, oh no!"

sorry - but this seems to be our life. . .

Yesterday morning we had a parent-teacher conference at Joseph's preschool. I can't say enough about how much I love this school and how much Joseph has thrived there. Because Joseph will start full-day Kindergarten in the fall, we have decided to let him have the summer off for some "big boy" time with Mama. So, sadly, he only has 7 weeks left at his school. I know he'll really miss his teacher and his friends but we did find out that one girl from his class will be attending his same Elementary School.

I've debated about sharing this on a public blog. . . but it's funny. . . and I need to remember this:

Our sweet, crazy Jacob is 2 years old. Technically this happened 12 days ago, on March 30th, but we got up early that morning and hopped in the car to commence our week of travels. I was going to post about him when we got home, but then decided to wait until his 2-year-old well visit today.

Somehow I have missed the Teddy Roosevelt Monument on previous trips and it is incredible. It takes up quite a bit of space and is covered with quotes, fountains and statues. Here is a single example.
I was able to see the new MLK, Jr. Monument which is also amazing.
My cousin Michael was able to get us in to tour the White House. I had been on the tour many years ago but this was Christopher's first visit. You don't get to see much but the tour is still interesting. We also found a small museum in front of the White House that contained additional furnishings.
I visited the Library of Congress later that afternoon and peeked into the main reading room.
No protesters in front of the Supreme Court when I walked past but we did see the "Million Mustache March" at the Capitol when we arrived. "Shave our taxes, not our 'staches!!"
Christopher had to work much of the time we were there but we enjoyed some great food and fun visits with my cousin and a few other good friends.

We have spent the last week making the "family loop" - traveling through Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana to see all of our immediate family members. We had several reasons for this trip but they offered us a perfect occasion for Joseph and Jacob to make their "Bigger Brother & Big Brother" announcement.We stopped in Nashville to celebrate Jacob and Aunt Aftin's birthdays. We also got to see cousin Ava for the first time since Christmas and she is getting so big! Her smile is precious.
Then we headed up to Indianapolis to see our cousin Scout and meet our new cousin Rigby. We also got to celebrate Grandpa's birthday and cousin Cannon's birthday a little early.
Scout is very generous with the kisses.
Cousin Rigby!!! We all had lots of chances to snuggle this little guy. He is so sweet and will be so big when we see him again.
On our last day we took a trip to the Indianapolis Children's Museum. It is the largest childrens museum in the US and we try to visit every time we're in town, especially since it's so close to Jon & Natalie's house.
