Overheard: Owen’s vacation edition 

A growing compendium…

 Owen: “I need some sunscream. I’m in my swimsoup.”

As the sun went under a cloud: “What’s happening?! The sun is broken!”

“I’m sad because I can’t be naked.”

In response to his sisters’ requests to swim out a bit futher: “It’s nice RIGHT HERE.” (Right by the dock, where I hope he never leaves.) 

 

“Where are my girls?”

In response to this catch: “NONONONONONO.” 

 

And to this little bird at the Freeport zoo: “Oh, you’re so cute.”

  

Every morning this week: “It’s my birthday today!”

Slip ‘n slide 

 
   

  

Symmetry 

  

Owen Fix

Bryan: “Owen, time to get dressed.”

Owen: “Are you CRAZY? I’m playing with my trains.”

   

  

Persistence 

Owen: “Can I hold the hedge trimmer?”

Bryan: “No. It’s not safe.” 

Owen: “Can I hold the hedge trimmer?”

Bryan: “No.” 

Owen: “Can I hold the hedge trimmer?”

Bryan: “No.” 

Owen: “Can I hold the hedge trimmer?”

Bryan: “No.” 

Owen: “Can I hold the hedge trimmer?”

   
 

Happy birthday, Bryan!

We love you so much. Can’t wait to see what the next year brings for you!

Photos from home 

From New York, I asked Bryan (who was in Chicago until the day before yesterday), to send me a photo from home. Now I’m sharing it with you, wherever you may be (if you’re reading this, you’re likely in Nebraska). Hope we are all together again soon!
