I love boys, I know it is so fun to dress up little girls with the outfits and paint their nails and all. But boys are so much easier, and so much softer, and so loving with so little maintenance. It is a wonderful simple love. I am so happy I get to experience it.
So our very last weekend of our self imposed "no-spend" month went off well. We scrounged up enough coins to ride the train into the city and go to the museum, since we paid with "found" change it felt like it was free. I know that is false but just go with me on this, please. We have an annual family pass to the museum, and if you ride the train you don't have to pay for parking (or CRAZY priced gas). We also packed a lunch so a fun filled FREE day.
We have been to the science museum dozens of times, but the kiddos just can't get enough of it. I don't know why we hadn't taken Ty before today.
He was loving every second. He really soaks in everything. He loves new adventures, he would have been satisfied with the 20 minute ride on the commuter train. His English is getting so much better and I LOVE being able to communicate with him.I keep asking him all these questions about his time in China. We knew right when we met him that he had very little exposure to the world outside the four walls where he lived. Now he can tell us, and it breaks my heart.
Things that I had assumed are true and things I hadn't even though of...just sad really.
