Spring has sprung!

Well, temporarily at least. We are having a few days of beautiful weather here in Portland which, as my friend pointed out, shuts Portland down quicker and more completely than a snow day.

Vaughn continues to grow (as I hear they do) and continues to delight with such sassy phrases as, "I think I already asked you to get me some strawberry juice but I'll ask you again." Overall he is as super and quirky as ever. Despite being not quite seven, we see glimpses of the teenager inside.

This morning Jacob and I were upstairs and heard music blasting from the computer at really unreasonable volumes for so early in the morning. Jacob pointed out that the music sounded "suspiciously Christian" when it took an even louder, more aggressive turn. I started downstairs vowing once again to monitor the computer searching more closely (you would have thought the superhero fetish pictures he found would have taught me a lesson). The culprit ended up being a Pokemon video set to music by Marilyn Manson. I don't think you could find a better metaphor for these pre-tween years if you tried.
