Going for a walk

 Walking with Uncle Matt

Chalkboard Wall!

I have always wanted a chalkboard wall and I finally Jack got one! We don't have a whole wall that would work for drawing on so we used the door in our dining room. Lance took the door of the frame and painted it with three coats of chalkboard paint. Then we had to wait 24 hours before we could start drawing. We love it!

Jack enjoys drawing on it but he really likes erasing!

Working with Lance

Jack loves to help Lance with any handyman projects we have around. It is not unusual to see lance walking around with his toolbox and Jack right behind him with his own miniture toolbox. Awhile ago they worked in the yard getting it ready for winter.

Jack spent some time picking up rocks. Also check out his little frog rain boots!

                                                                  And digging in the dirt
Then it was time to get the hoe and pull up the massive amount of weeds in our garden

 Whew! That was a lot of work (also my son seems to have a hazy glow around him  in these pictures... or maybe it is a smudge on the lens?)

 Spreading the straw around
 Jack loves using Lance's tools. Here he is learning how to hammer nails

gingerbread man

Jack has a felt gingerbread man that he loves to play with. It is meant to be a placemat with the little felt pieces glued onto it. Right now it is more fun to be able to rearrange the pieces.
This is how it is meant to look like

 I think Jacks is better

Building a fort

Jack loves building forts. Someday I will make this for him but in the mean time we make do. Almost every day while laying in bed and reading books jack asks to build a fort which results in me trying to use my arms and legs as posts for the tent. As you can imagine this gets a little tiring. Last week Jack and Lance built a fort in the garage. I guess it was a little static-y
