Man Lessons

I thought that I would share one of our new traditions since we have moved to Texas. About two years ago Greg decided that it was time for Gregory to learn a few necessary skills to be a reasonably handy man someday. So, Man lessons were born. This is probably one of the funniest things that you have ever seen, each Saturday after waffles, of course Greg and Gregory embark on a few hours of some man type skill that Greg thinks he should teach Gregory. You know your typical checking the air pressure or painting a room or of course the dreaded in Texas at this time of year; working in the yard. This is just one of the down sides to being the only boy with four sisters. Gregory of course loves every minute of this, he is quite sure that he does not need any of these skills since he plans on hiring this type of stuff out. I know, I know, arrogant we are working on that. These pics are from last Saturday and I think Gregory was outside for maybe one hour but he informed me that it was at least 3 hours. I must say though, that as long as Gregory can swing the pick ax he is pretty happy.

Thats the funniest thing I've ever seen! I'm quite impressed! Maybe I'll hire Gregory to come do all of my "handy man" chores! Because lets face it, we all know Marcus needs some man lessons! Just kidding! (Sort of!)

Kudos to Greg. What a smart father!
The "man lessons" are right up there with the brain thing.

parker needs man lessons more than anyone i know - although his man lessons involve putting toys away in the toy basket. this is what i hear when i tell him to do this... "mom! i can't! it is just too hard of work!"

That sounds vaguely familiar with what Gregory used to say. Good Luck with that.
