Ten Starter Points and Three Extra Lives

I thought about chocolate chip cookies on my walk this morning.

Since I was still thinking about them when I got home, I did something about that.

Filled with oatmeal, eggs and nuts, these things are almost a health food.  Almost.

Which is why Ben had cookies for breakfast.

Papa is a go-with-the-flow kind of guy.

The truth is that I knew the oven was going to be baking bagels, so why not?

Ben has a lot of energy, and sometimes he runs laps in my house.  I have been encouraging him to run laps around the house, but that was a no.  Until today when I heard a knock at my mudroom door.  Ben had decided on his own to take me up on my suggestion.  He liked it!

Lunch came from Spicy Thai today.  On the right is yellow curry with rice dumped in it--my new favorite menu item.  Pad Thai is on the left with Pad Se Iwe next to it.  This was new to me, a definite keeper.  Will, Annika and Mel joined us.  Matt had a class we couldn't work around.

Will brought a favorite sword to show Ben.  He was suitably impressed and even knew what it was.

Mel practiced her origami.  Next time we have Thai food, I might get a lesson.

The big kids left and Corinne and I took Ben to the pool.  This was Ben's first cannonball.  Look at his perfect form!

And the resulting splash!

Ben fed the koi and then our tetras.

Ben and I have been playing a lot of catch.  This is way fun for me, I think for him, too.  But first we took a cookie break.

Along with fancy skills, Ben adds rules and extra points which certainly keep the game interesting.
