In honor of their 50th day of school, Trey’s class made a little workbook that revolved around the number 50. One of the pages had a box for Trey to draw himself today and then a second box for what he will look like at 50.
He wrote this in the 50 year old box:
“Mi as a palesman”
“Did you git the robr?”
“Yes, I did git the robrs but I … [???]“
It’s getting to where Trey can often read us the bed time story instead of it being the other way around.
I was headed downtown to pick up some photos and Trey spotted the massive flag hanging from city hall. He asked to walk over to check out and we had time to kill so we did a little walk about downtown. We stopped by the city auditorium, city hall, and then for a little snack at Macon’s famous Nu-Way Weiners.
Last year a Georgia-based self-serve frozen yogurt shop La’ Berry came to Macon and was a huge hit. This past month the national chain Tutti Frutti opened a shop just around the corner from our neighborhood.
Trey and I swung by during its grand opening to try it out. We’ve got to say – we liked it better than La’ Berry! It probably doesn’t hurt that they feature a Nutella flavor!
One of Trey’s favorite birthday presents was a Stomp Rocket from my parents. They went down to the lake spillway in our neighborhood where there is a clearing and had a “blast” launching it.
Trey has been up in Virginia this week with my parents. Normally I’d say it’s been quiet around here in his absence, but a pipe burst in one of our walls and the subsequent water damage has caused a lot of racked. We’ve had three giant fans and two industrial dehumidifiers running 24hours a day since last Thursday.
Trey flew up to Virginia on his own again and he loved every second of it. He’s quite an independent little boy so he likes the privilege of flying on his own.
Next week he turns six and starts first grade so there are some big changes coming soon!
