Tonight we asked Luke to try to make his scrunchy "I don't like that" face:

Here's the actual "I don't like that" face:

Here's his answer to, "Where's Luke's nose?":

And here's a genuine smile:

When Grandma came to visit today, she was rewarded with a big goodbye hug from Luke.

Goodbye, Dear Home

Today the DeJong crew moved the remainder of the boxes out of the house and spent the day spraying down window screens and cleaning carpets.  I am trying not to be too nostalgic, but it is sad to leave my childhood home of 24 years.  I will miss this beautiful house which holds so many of my lifelong memories.

It's still on the market, by the way.  Cascade paradise, anyone?

Today we got blackmail / embarrassing graduation yearbook photos. 

Congratulations Ian and Luke, class of 2028!

Don't worry, they were going about 5 mph.

No we did NOT pull them behind a boat by themselves like that! What kind of parents do you think we are??

Today was the first day of a long weekend away with friends.  This was Luke's first time really swimming, as in actually kicking his legs and stroking with his arms.  He loved floating around in his life jacket, and we noticed such a difference in his attitude in the water from the beginning of the summer.   He is becoming (gulp) a bit fearless.

I am amazed by the variety of moves in Luke's repertoire.

Luke's new favorite word is "yeah".  You can see it in these two videos I took today, along with a few of his other words and signs.

Although you saw my fabulous shoes for Sam's aunt's wedding last weekend, you never actually got to see any people.  So those are my pics for today.  

Here's a picture to prove that, even though all you see on this blog is our child, Sam and I do actually still exist.

First dance.

I love this pic.

I love this man!
