I have to give this book a shout out, as it has cracked the code for my boys on thinking about others. Originally, I was hoping just to inspire better manners when I picked it up from a book shop a few weeks ago, but the bucket meme has hit full force. It’s been wonderful to see them apply the theme of filling others’ buckets with kindness and to grapple with dipping from others’ buckets with unkindness. It’s worked wonders for them, from curbing fighting with each other, to hugging a tree today that they thought “looked like it had an empty bucket”. Wow.

If I’m being honest, this is probably their favorite part of swim lessons.

It’s been about 4 months since the last post, and here is why. A baby sister arrived! In the same 4 months we’ve also had a job transfer, sold a house and moved halfway across the country. What a ride- but feeling blessed today to have these three fantastic kiddos.

Fireman Ren couldn’t care less about the trucks or amazing equipment we
saw. He was just over the moon about the fireman’s pole! He has become an expert at the playground honing his sliding-down-the -pole skills.

Here’s Fireman Sam at a tour of our local firehouse. He was already an expert on stop, drop, and roll and when the firemen started to talk about it he did an impromptu demonstration!
