Scoot over

So, I bought the boys new scooters today. James is more comfortable learning to balance on the flat driveway. Daniel wants to feel the wind in his hair, and damn the torpedoes.

In other news, the boys brought a Kindle Fire to play with: ONE Kindle. So now, I have a whole new insight into Jesus's question, "Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?" Mainly, I suspect that Jesus never had to babysit two kids who were told they had to share one toy.

Hera jumped up on the bed as per usual last night and let Daniel pet her some, but she is still wary of him. He wants to cuddle her so badly, which is counterproductive with cats. They always gravitate to the people who don't bother them.
