Big Boots

Purchasing footwear for kids is always a great reminder of how fast kids are growing. "I can't believe it," we say as they tromp around in their new boots.

Well, believe it. They had these adorable little round kid boots last year, and now they have these giant monster truck-tire jobbies with velcro (bought from the OTHER side of Kiddie Kobbler).

I get all faux-traumatized (well, maybe a bit for real), then I remind myself that they sell them large so the kids can grow into them over the winter.

I also remind myself that one day, the shoe tray in the entryway will look like this

and when that day comes, their old Kiddie Kobbler boots will seem still pretty tiny after all.

Family Game Night

We have a decent collection of board games, mostly from the days when we'd get together with friends for "game nights". Nowadays, Hubs and I occasionally enjoy a game of Dominion or Lost Cities when we go wild and try something other than Netflix. 

Board games are fun. We look forward to playing many a board game with our sons, too. 

Not sure when that'll be, though. Big Bro has liked board games since ever. Little Bro does too, but it's a different kind of "like".

As in, "I like to make my own rules",  More of a monkey-wrenchy, sabotagey kind of like.

Family Game Night, circa 2016.
