What does a little boy need to learn from his grandpa? Well, so much to teach and share. I pointed out to Emmett that in order to keep the garage neat and clean, that he should take the necessary tools and materials for any project from the garage into the kitchen. Not only will this keep the garage clean but the kitchen has likely got better lighting and heat in cool weather. Then we completed a small project in the kitchen to reinforce the idea.
One morning when only Emmett and I were up, we went around and looked out all of the windows and into all of the mirrors. Since Emmett had not really done this before, it was up to me to show him how to press his nose up against the window pane and the mirror. Sometimes he got carried away and licked the glass. I figured that was okay since the windows were pretty clean - shouldn't be any germs on them. All little boys need to look out windows to dream about the adventures that lay off towards the horizon!
This morning was a lovely fall morning. Cool, but dry (apparently it's going to rain for the next three days). So Emmett and I went out for the first time in his little red wagon. It will be a challenge to speed down hills with this as you cannot steer the front wheels, but when he's ready for that, I'm sure that we'll find a way. Plus it was time to teach Emmett how to use a camera. Thanks to Families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy Society Canada for this little red wagon - all little boys need a wagon. So do little girls - when Alisha and her sister, Katie, were little we had many excursions in our wagon. I have to warn you - this is a long video and it is not amazing cinematography - but if you love Emmett then you'll enjoy it!
Emmett is looking forward to this weekend. All of his Willms' family will be here as his Aunt Jennie and Uncle Benjamin are flying in from Alberta today. Party time! Stay Tuned for some stories of the Willms' gathering.
