Christy has been teaching Pete Sudoku. Here they are working on Memorial Day, after we got back from the pool. This is the first puzzle that he finished.
On a related note, Sam can count to any number. He uses the technique developed by the owl from the Tootsie pop commercials.
Me: Sam, can you count to 37?
Sam: One, two, three, 37!

Pete: Dad, emergency!
Pete: I need a new mattress
Dad: You do?
Pete: In the next 5 days
Dad: What is happening in 5 days?
Pete: If we act now, we can make no payments until August 2007 at Mattress Discounters
We may need to reconsider having switched his night-night music to Hot 99.5
Here are Pete and Sam waiting for the train in Trevose.
Riding together on the train. Pete likes the car that goes backwards. Sam likes the tunnels.
Sam on the tractor at the farm area of the museum. This was just before one of the kids there took a blow to the eye from a head of lettuce (really).
Sam napping on the train platform. Note, he still won't let anyone have the backpack.

We have also changed his bedtime music from the Sesame Street tape to DC radio station Hot 99.5.

1. Pete is wearing his biking helmet and not his bubbles helmet.
2. According to mom, the outfit shown (which dad allowed Pete to wear outside) does not match because the shirt is a different pattern than the pants.
3. This one would be impossible to determine from the picture, but Pete actually somehow snapped the bubble wand in the process of creating the bubbles for this photo.
4. Sam is not doing exactly the same thing as Pete and getting in Pete's way. (note, in fact he is doing exactly the same thing just outside the frame of the picture)

What we are looking for is someone who would like to explain to Sam what happened. If anyone would like to help out with this, please let us know.

1. Kid's Day
Pete: Do only Mother's get presents on Mother's Day?
Pete: And do only father's get presents on June 18th?
Pete: When is Kid's Day?
2. Special Privileges
Pete: Let's play Coolboarders. They have a 4-player mode. I'll go first, dad second, mom third, and Sam fourth
Dad: You want mom to go third on Mother's Day? She should get moved up to the highest spot.
Pete: Ok, you're right. She can go second.

For example, yesterday Pete was counting from 1 to 100 for his homework assignment. Well, Sam kept calling out random numbers. It seemed like this was not malicious in intent, but it is hard to say for sure. Anyhow, it was messing up Pete's counting and it would have made a very funny video, but Sam ran over to get his picture taken when we took the camera out.

If you guessed a squishy basketball, a case for Activision 30 Games, and a Power Rangers sticker, you win.
Sam likes the case for 30 games. He can point to about half of them if you call the name out. His favorites are Hero, Tennis, Boxing, Pitfall, Ice Hockey, Frostbite, Freeway, and Enduro.
By the way, if you were thinking about moving the basketball to the other side of the case, I wouldn't recommend it.

This is where dad would generally find them when leaving for work in the morning, and when returning in the evening.
Sam is all better now.

Sam had a tendency to lose the eggs in his basket. I have a feeling that if you wanted to get all of his eggs, you could ask him for the time and he would turn his arm to check his watch and all of his eggs would spill out.

Here is a picture of Pete getting his green belt.
This was a fun ceremony, because Pete and Sam got to sit together.
Here is Sam with his new belt. Unfortunately, his flower did not last too long. Interesting note about this picture is that it was taken by Pete.
