Sheer delight to watch this little man play soccer.
Loving the two thumbs up he does to us with a huge grin after every play.
Proud of his hustle and the way he anticipates where that ball will go.
Amazed at how being a parent is so infinitely special, even (especially!) during a simple pre-K soccer game.
Daddy brought home a brand new, official youth soccer ball for this little man tonight.
Also brought home by daddy tonight?
"Up"--out on DVD today:
Ian still says the highlight of Disney World for him was meeting Mr. Fredricksen. Ian has an old soul.
He empathizes with Mr. F, and like him, Ian is kind and seems to possess compassion beyond his years.
We surprised Ian with an "Up" watch party. Grandma and grandpa showed up with a bouquet of helium balloons to celebrate the event.
Loved Nathan's tweet: "Ian watched "Up" tonight. We watched Ian."
He acted out every scene as he watched. He doesn't play the child, Russell's part. He plays--you guessed it--Mr. F.
I think he and Mr. F are kindred spirits. (Have I mentioned I love Mr. Fredricksen?)
Have you seen Up? What did you think?
What recent moments have made parenting extra special for you?
