W hopefully seems to be getting the reading bug. He's still at the "almost-there" stage, but he tries. Here he is after deciding to try out some Harry Potter 2. He's also been fascinated lately with words. He makes up ABC games (e.g. "Let's think of everyone we know in the whole alphabet starting with A"), he spells out loud ("I know how to spell --- "), and he picks out every word he knows from a book I'm reading. He's into telling time and finding countries on the globe. He's still inventing and makes beautiful drawings. Six is a really fun age.
He lost both his front teeth this week, too. Of course this is the most adorable thing I've ever seen. This makes 6 teeth lost so far. Only 2 on the bottom came back, but the 2 top teeth are already coming in fast.
We all went to a block party yesterday at SIL's. We got there around 7pm and stayed til about 11pm. There was a great DJ, a moon bouncy thing, raffles, and lots of food. K and J both made friends almost immediately and hung with them all night. K and her friends gossiped about cute boys, danced to 80s music, and sang at the top of her lungs with the other girls. J and her friends rode bikes, danced a lot, and played all the DJ's games. W danced, went in the bouncy thing a lot, and played basketball and wiffle ball with older boys. It was a great ending to the week.
