better start saving our pennies!

Matthew went to college, and he LOVED it!

Yesterday we hung out at the university...sharing a slice at a local pizza joint and walking around campus. The destination was actually the campus duck pond, but M seemed to love it all. Bicycles, skateboards, grass, water, ducks, Sonic slushes...they all got his approval.

As we sat on a bench sipping our slushes, I kept asking if he was ready to go home, ready to go back to the car. Each time he would emphatically shake his head NO! This boy who will typically dig the car keys out of my bag to let me know when he is bored and ready to get goin' was perfectly content to sit at college and watch the world go by.

As we watched the US women's gymnastics team huddled together talking, Scott exclaimed, "Babes, I can't believe they're not texting each other!"

I've been sick and recently asked Scott to suck out my eyeballs with a turkey baster. He declared, "That is beyond my comfort level."

Me: Will you get some plastic cups out of the cabinet?
Scott: Speaking of plastic cups, have you talked to your mom today?
Me: Uh, no...but I plan to. Have you talked to YOUR mom today?
Scott: No, but I'm drinking a smoothie in a plastic cup.

P.S. My fave pic of Matthew is the people-watching one. :) It's the look in his eyes while he sips his slushie. :)

and i can't believe that out of all things he loves to people watch? that just seems so. . . boring. but whatever it takes to entertain the little man.

Great coversation. Love the pics. How did you get M to drink out of a straw...want to try that. He will drink out of his CARS sippy cup with no stopper, but can't get him to drink out of a straw.
