You can tell that Joshua’s been reading a lot when he says stuff like: “I can’t wait to jump into the crisp cool water.” (He’s been plowing through books this summer and has 4 books going at the same time right now)
Brian lets the kids practice taking pictures on his old SLR camera.
B: Hard night? (as I grumpily poured some coffee)
Me: Hard night. Hard morning. Hard life.

At Kango play center, I overheard Joshua strike up a conversation that went like this:
Joshua: Isn't this place so much fun?
Stranger: (no response)
Joshua: HEY! Are you deaf?
Stranger: No. Were you talking to me?
Joshua: (laughs) Yes! My dad is deaf.
Stranger: oh how nice, do you know sign language?
