Me too! video

Being the youngest of five Maximus has a lot of kids to watch and learn from. Fortunately, my big kids are wholesome and creative, fun and happy. Maximus likes to be with them and do what they do, go with their flow, join in the noise and be part of the ruckus.

The latest fad in the Cole home is scootering. Everyday my kids (minus Annie, who is just not the sporty type) go around and around the house, the garage, the driveway on their razor scooters. Their favorite place to scooter is outside on the road..... you can see what Max sees and how he wants to do it too:

And Laura, her sweet servant heart, is ready to help him in anyway he needs.



How is this boy only 10?

and me too! After that I raised the handle bars and man, those things can go fast!!!


If you are on Spring break, I hope you are having some fun family time. We are not as we had too much time off in January when my family were here! But it is hard to keep focused on grammar and math when the weather is so good in Texas. It is like an Irish summer, fresh and lovely. I love Spring.

I have a post over on CRESCENDOh about working with kids, it is a part 2 from last week's. I am talking about being mentally and physically prepared for doing art with kids. There is some meat there, some things to think about. I hope you check it out and if you do please leave me a comment and tell me your thoughts.

  1. It is always so sweet when older siblings help the younger ones. I always see it as God's way of showing me the fruits of my labour. I am encouraged in my mothering. Perhaps the children are learning to be selfless and loving and considerate. Thanks for sharing.
    By the way, Maximus is just adorable in your video. You must be very proud to be his mum.

  2. What fun....I loved little Maximus big smile when big sis helped him do it too. I just bought your book. It's not just for mommies. I'm a grandma of 1 and am finding I am loving your book.

  4. How adorable is that? And your little lady shows a lot of character giving up some of her scooter time to help her little brother join in the fun. I love the pictures too. :)

    I hope I can give my little one a sibling one day.
