Sammy picked out this donkey hat all on his own. He had a choice of dog, owl, monster, donkey, sock monkey, lion, penguin, polar bear, and so on and so forth. He picked donkey. He is his own person through and through.
After sending the girls off to school one morning, Sammy spent some time finger and foot painting in the condensation on our glass front door. Poor kid had been on day who knows what of being sick and enjoyed a little diversion, I think.
Here's a shot of Sammy sporting his new shoes: his very first pair of Vans. He picked the checkerboard design. Pretty proud, and someday I'm sure our fearless little guy will be skating "Off the Wall."
