Overcoming His Fear

Since coming home, Will has been terrified of the swings.  I figured that after watching his brothers, he'd want to do it too.  I was wrong.  So, just like ice cream, whenever we are somewhere with swings, I force him to give it a try.  Just a couple small pushes, to prove it is fun and safe.  He hates it.  Sunday, I finally thought to sit him on my lap while swinging.  He seemed to enjoy it, for a little while.  Tonight, I looked out back and saw this.  Will had convinced Rob to give him a ride.
Uh, yeah, that's definitely safer, Will.
Comfortable, boys?
I guess so.
Don't worry, Will.
Before long, you'll be swinging high like Jack!

Will calls glasses, "Eyes!"
The butter box earned me about an hour of baking time and lots of smiles.

Will's great at cutting strips of cardboard into little pieces.

This kid can make anything fun!

Jack was pretty proud of his chalk man that I traced for him, today.
 Will and Charlie thought it'd be better to do it, themselves.
 OK, Charlie, you do trace a better hand.
 Will's currently into circles.
The chalk looks pretty good on you, too, Will!

A Very Gentle Easter

We celebrated Easter at Grandpa and Grandma Gentle's, today.

Lots of good food.

Mixed with thought provoking conversation.
And sunshine.

The kids blew bubbles after lunch.

 And then dyed eggs.
 Rob used a multi-dipping technique.
 Luke, the boys' cousin, used a 3-year old INDEPENDENT technique.
 Jack and Will preferred the markers.
 While Charlie used a little of everything.
 Eventually, we all lost interest.
 Thanks Grandpa and Grandma for a great party!

Happy Easter!

This little cat did a great job in his school play!
The audience was mesmerized.
 Charlie's big scene, talking to the Easter chickens.
 What a great bunch of kids!
 Post performance ice cream.
The play left us with a lot to think about, I guess.
Still not into the ice cream, Will, huh?
