Poppop gave Leo a snap circuits set for Christmas. Since we had a whole week off before Christmas, I decided we should open a present early and start playing! So Leo opened the circuit set. Yesterday we built a radio. This morning instead of wanting to watch TV or play video games, Leo opted to make a circuit. He was able to make a lamp circuit and a fan circuit by himself. Its amazingly cool - easy for kids and I've been playing with it too!

Leo Video 2009-2010

This is a brief video of edited clips from the last year. I make these videos every year for my Dad and then try to edit them down to something short enough for others to sit through! It features Leo's latest antics and a bunch of travel in Hawaii and on the mainland. Older versions are viewable at Enjoy!

Food fight

Leo drew this at school, for a story assignment. For those of you who aren't used to phonetic spelling, it says, "I like to have a food fight."

Leo went to sleep the other night asking why is the word "a" just spelled a but the word "you" is not spelled u? I let it go, saying, "yeah that is very interesting, go to sleep". Paul however, is going through every letter of the alphabet, "well, you have bee, 'c' is see..." They are having a great time and Leo is learning the difference between pee and pea and tea and tee.

Love of ties

Leo loves ties. He wore this to school today. Thanks, Por-por for the fancy clothes!
