TJ is on some kind of school camping trip thing so daughters are in his bed so that younger son feels safe with company in the boys’ room.
When I walk past their room I should see his hairy leg hanging at a weird angle off his bed and instead I know I’ll see two sweet little girls.
Reminds me of the night he was born when I was too excited to sleep, banned from the hospital (wife had a shared room so I couldn’t stay after visiting hours) and I went home and played SMAX (Alpha Centauri Alien Crossfire) from start to finish.
Doesn’t help that I also stayed up for work late and then afterward popped over to HotS with a couple friends.
At the end of the school year TJ earned the right to go to the closest amusement park to celebrate good grades and no late assignments.
There weren’t many opportunities for good pictures while chaperoning the group, but here is a shot of him in the spinning boat.
I had a good time. The park wasn’t as big as I expected (it could easily fit inside the St. Louis Six Flags for instance) but I had a lot of fun with them. It was interesting seeing the preteen in his natural habitat (being among friends).
