Every Wednesday, school begins one hour later than normal. That means the guys sleep in until 7:40am instead of 6:40am. In my eyes, that extra hour sure makes a difference. Some schools in America are beginning to have students arrive closer to 8:30am instead of 7:00 or 7:30am. I think a later start time makes good sense, and so do children's doctors and sleep experts in America. This morning, Soenke forgot about late arrival. He ate breakfast and then crawled back into bed. As for Bailey, he doesn't think much about time or school or arrival times--he just looks forward to his bowl of food and the two bones he receives afterwards.
The boys, Ian, and Connie ate at a restaurant in Boston where the wait staff made fun of and were rude to patrons. In addition, each dinner guest had to wear a hate with a saying on it...like Soenke's: "I scare girls..."
Connie, her son Ian, and the boys are in Boston today to watch the Boston Red Sox baseball team. It's a beautiful spring day in New England.
The boys are enjoying baseball even though the weather has been miserable. But for the next week we've landed wonderful spring weather. On Sunday, Connie, Ian (Connie and Ben's son), and the boys will attend a Red Sox game in Boston.
