Charlie learns to make a tower all by himself. But that final block was a challenge.
You know the end result….
but we were laughing and I didn’t take a pic of the fallen blocks
Jack tried repeatedly to dislodge the nylon parachute guy from the birch tree in the backyard. Stuck! It was a stunning winter day. Gray and white clouds, blue sky and just below freezing temp. A day for the real camera and not the phone.
His dad was going to help himtry to retrieve it later after work but I wasn’t there to find out if they succeeded.
It was about 14 degrees but my app said it felt like 2 degrees and yet the sun was out and the sky blue.
I’d just arrived from Pittsburgh. The roads were clear so I made it in about 3 1/2 hours to Clintonville Ohio for lunch with Charlie and Laura.
They’d just pulled into the driveway and we were going inside to warm up. He loves the snow.
Just noticing the difference in the light in full sun and then on the back porch deck in the shade.

Strolling with Charles (1) around the neighborhood.
Hot summer sun. The colors so rich and alive.
I appreciate the gardeners’ efforts.
Back at the house on the front porch he said “bubble” and pointed to the chair.Underneath was a red plastic bear with bubble stuff. You had to squeeze the Bear’s stomach and it took awhile for me to get the hang of it.
Cousin Maura helped Charlie blow out his candle.
