Every Friday Charlieโ€™s teacher assigns the kids an alphabet letter and they have to bring an object that starts with that letter in a paper sack. He LOVES this game (and Tuck is very jealous that his teacher doesnโ€™t do it.) ย He was so proud to take his wheel this week. He was the only kid who brought a wheel ๐Ÿ™‚

Digging in the dirt at Jujuโ€™s is just so much fun.

One child uses tools to dig with and one child clearly does not. Can you guess who is who?! ๐Ÿ˜œ

I was comparing baby pics of Thomas (top) and the boys to see if he resembled them any. I think he looks like Charlie (in blue hat). What do yโ€™all think?
