Several weeks ago, Gavin was whining in the car to Don on the way home from school, "I want..." this and "I want" that. Don replied, "you can't always get what you want, and you know what, someone wrote a song about it."
He taught Gavin the song and, well, now he has become such a fan of it he taught it to his friend Bridget at school and tonight wanted me to repeat the You Tube video I found of the Rolling Stones performing it in concert. Here he is trying to play along to the CD, which Don dug out of his music archive so Gavin could hear the real thing this morning.

Danny is in love with Keely. She enters the room and he can't take his eyes off her. He is determined, I think, to snuggle up with her but that excitement has so far translated into him once grabbing a fist full of her fur and generally stalking her now that he can crawl. To her credit, our often anxious dog has responded the way she always does to the boys, she takes the abuse and comes back for more. Click on the photo above for a slide show that gives you the play-by-play...

Gavin is 3 1/2 -- he is getting ready to leave the classroom (the Rainbow Room) where he has spent the last year growing from a toddler to a little boy -- learning to ride the city bus, using the potty and taking care of a menagerie of animals. We are so lucky to have such wonderful teachers and hope to be as fortunate in his new room, the Purple Room, a Spanish immersion classroom where the teachers will speak Spanish and English and some of his classmates are from homes where only Spanish is spoken. It should be a cool experience to see what he learns and a handful of his friends from the Rainbow Room will be joining him in this transition so he won't be alone.

We were very fortunate to spend the holiday weekend in Minneapolis and, thanks to my brother-in-law Rick, we were able to attend the No Doubt concert last night!
Gwen was in great voice and seriously rocked. Note to self: begin doing crunches STAT
We had a great time and the band sounded amazing... what a treat to have a night out!
