From 2T to Men's Medium - Week of Jan. 24th

Parent sayings: "You won't believe how fast they grow up!" "It seems like you blink and they're not toddlers anymore." "If only we could stop time."

It is so true.  Cam's clothing seemed to move into the "Men's" section seemingly overnight.  Of course, that wasn't the case, but it did happen fast.  Cam has never minded shopping and actually likes to pick out his clothes.  Blue is his favorite color and many of his shirts gravitate towards that spectrum.  Without pre-planning, Chris and his son both ended up wearing similar shirts one day this week.  Except they weren't similar...they were exactly the same.  Jane bought the one for Chris two years ago and Cam's was given to him for Christmas.  

Cam was back to school this week after successfully navigating quarantine.  As we all know, sometimes it takes a day or two to get back into the swing of things.  When Chris went in the sunroom to see how homework was progressing, he found his son looking like he just survived a long day.

Jane continues to be impressed by the genius creativity of her husband and son.  Every morning, Cam's mom has a cup of coffee and sometimes in the afternoon, a cup of tea.  Chris will also make coffee or hot cocoa in the Keurig once in awhile and Cam likes to have a hot chocolate on the weekends.  Each and every time, the coffee/tea/cocoa splattered on the counter while it was dripping into the mug.  The boys were busy for two consecutive nights designing and fabricating a solution on the 3-D printer.  They created a 3D printed "mug holder" complete with holes for any drainage needed.  

Equally impressive was the detailed height model making certain that our largest cups would still fit on top of the new holder.  The "invention" is one that is appreciated by every family member, but especially the person who tends to wipe down counters the most....patent pending!

Camology Quotes:

Cam announced this week that his choir class would be performing in March for the musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.  At school, they were watching the movie to become acclimated to the music and the story.  Ms. Ann tutors Cam after school and when they are finished, they typically talk about Ann's grandchildren and events.  Cam disclosed to his parents and Ms. Ann that Ann's five-year-old grandson would not be able to see the musical production.  When asked why, his response was...
"The guys are nude, like naked."
"What do you mean, Cam?"
"They are not wearing shirts!"
(discussion ensued and clarity provided...Jane's grandmother would have thoroughly loved Cam's 'appropriateness')
