1. Cort is a funny kid. He's always dressing himself up and making us laugh. This is a picture of him walking the streets of downtown Lincoln, sporting his Native American pouch, his lion face (which he insisted I paint for him at the Children's Museum), and carrying a pirate umbrella he picked out at the gift shop. Our other two boys looked completely normal...and then there was Cort.
3. On our trip, Reid saw Pierce writing postcards and immediately he wanted to send postcards too. Reid doesn't write yet (other than his name) but he sent off two postcards anyhow, with pictures he drew on them and his name. They were kind of cute.
4. I ran 22 miles in Nebraska on gravel roads (broken into 4 runs), swatting at these nasty biting flies the whole way. On one of my runs, a young sweet brown dog adopted me. She ran with me the whole way. I hope she made it home alright afterwards.
5. One day we went wading in the Platte River which is muddy and flat and spread out. Somehow, Pierce discovered a matchbox truck buried in the muck. It is now his most treasured possession.
Found any treasures lately, readers?
