Anyways, we had a
Lucas would not let me help. He drew out some ideas and went right to work. He loves drawing Angry Birds characters and quickly realized that the frosting in a piping bag could be used like marker. Luckily, I have about 6 piping bags so it was easy to have various colors available. I was so impressed with his detail and piping skills!

1. We've been able to Skype with Daddy every few days and it's fun to watch the boys comfort level increase each time. The biggest challenge is taking turns and not talking over each other on this end. It is so nice to be able to see him. He is reading lots of books, figuring out his new job, working out and getting into a routine. Now, if only we could get the months to tick by a tad faster. :) I know, we shouldn't rush through life but I think it would be okay to rush through 6 months of life. We sure miss you Daddy and love you very much! Hang in there!
2. Lucas had a fun day in Art Class this week getting to paint his own face.
