Cracking the Code

Geoff deserves the credit for this one…. David speaks David, and really only the family knows what he is talking about. For the last couple of months David says “di-ga-di-go” (rather fast) every time he sees pretty much anything with a handle, ie: scripture case, handbag, lunchboxes, violin cases, etc. So, he says “di-ga-di-go” and struts around with a smile on his face, while carrying in his hand something with a handle.

Yesterday, Geoff received inspiration (during a visit from our home teachers) as to what exactly “di-ga-di-go” means. After our handshakes and goodbyes, no sooner had the door shut than Geoff turned around and triumphantly said, “I know what “di-ga-di-go” means! --- ‘GOTTA GO’!!” Really, it was an obvious match, but it took the smarts of Daddy to bring it to our attention. You see, every time one of us leaves the house, we’re saying we gotta go! Or you gotta go! so naturally David picked up that phrase. It was a happy day indeed to have cracked the code, even if in part, to the language of David! ;)

Tasting the Wind

Jacob cracks us up all the time. Not with a big punch line or anything but the simple, innocent comments of a 3 year old boy. Here is a little sampling:
--While walking into the grocery store, which happens to be next to a pizza place; “Mom! I can really smell the wind! I can taste the wind!”
--Seeking a second drink before bed; “See my breath :::exhale::: it needs a drink.”
--Clicking a mechanical pencil; “This doesn’t have any WINK in it.”
--Stating the obvious; “I don’t like soap in my hair, it gets my hair all soapy.”
--Always thoughtful of not only others -- but other things; “Mom, I need to take these DVDs out. They need some fresh air.”
--And finally, when the boys play-fight, Emeron often says, “You wanna piece of me?”
Jacob however, (while laughing and putting up his dukes) says, “You wanna piece of MEAT?” :)

Secret Fishing Hole

Now, I’m not gonna spill the beans as to this top secret fishing hole of Geoff’s, but it’s only 4 minutes from the house and easy for Daddy to get the kids and go fishing for an hour or so. Emeron caught the first fish of the season, a big ole German Brown. He is quite proud, as you can tell.

Jacob Says

This morning, feeling out of the ordinary, I thought I'd try to fix Jakey's hair nice and neat. I made my attempt and then he disappeared into the other room and came back saying matter-of-factly; "Mom, I like my hair playing around." :)
