Fun family time

First the most exciting news - Jason is DONE with his MBA! I am super proud of him, and Josiah and I are enjoying spending more time with him. He just got his grade from his last class today, and found out that he will be graduating "with distinction" (meaning his grades over the past 2.5 years are an A average!). He worked really hard and we are glad it's over!

Two weeks ago we took Josiah to his first Royals game. Jason was very excited about it, while I was somewhat indifferent. :) Luckily our seats were in the shade and the weather was nice, so we all had a good time.
Here's Josiah happily showing off his new shoes!
Josiah is sitting up like a champ. He still falls over sometimes, but he is really getting the hang of it!
Last weekend we went to Colorado to visit friends (thanks Lazar & Tzvetanka!) and enjoy the great outdoors. Josiah was a trooper and didn't complain too much about all the new situations we put him in! While we were there, he perfected his rolling over skills. Jason got to see him roll over for the 1st time - and 2nd, and 3rd, etc. He has not rolled over since we've been home - prompting us to think we should move to Colorado!
Here's Josiah with his friend Alexander in a bike trailer. We thought it would be fun to go for a nice easy bike ride. Josiah disagreed. Maybe seven months is too soon to try something like this. Hopefully he won't be too traumatized!
While we were there, Josiah decided to start rock climbing. He is not yet walking or even crawling, but he was able to scale the north face of this rock.
Here he is looking for his next handhold. Notice how effortless he makes this look - he is a natural.
Other random news - while we were gone I finished knitting a baby blanket that I've been working on (off and on) for almost 3 years. I tried to calculate how much of that time was actually spent knitting, and I think it was approximately 25 hours, although that is a conservative estimate. When I told Jason that estimate, he wanted to know why I couldn't have finished it in a day. And then I punched him.

Have a great week everyone!
