Aidan's first official Playday
This year Aidan seems to be playing more and more with neighbourhood kids on his own, without Wallace and I hovering over him. He has three great friends in the neighbourhood, who took them under their wings and taught him how to play hide and seek; and tag.
Of course, Wallace or I are still in the area (on our porch or front lawn, great time to do some weeding; gardening or light reading) to make sure that Aidan is okay. It was hard at first, but it's nice.
Last Saturday was gardening day, Aidan and his friend Angela helped me loosen the soil; watered the grass and plants and raked the leaves. Angela declared it as a Playday and both kids seems to think it was great to be doing some gardening. Aidan got into it by wearing his gardening gloves, used his gardening tool and watering can. They continued their fun, down at the "Living Room Basement" with Aidan's train set and legos.
