Nathan, on the other hand tried his little heart out, but needed more boarding practice. Fun was had by all for sure!
12: ...because just being together is enough.
14: Aaron came to me with a deflated balloon and informed me it was "broken and needs new batteries". | I pulled an over-ripe banana out for Aaron's snack. He looked at it and said, "I don't want that one, it's dirty!" | Aaron | Aaron calls a sunny day a "shiny day". | Looking for Ryan, I asked Aaron if dad was in the house. Aaron replied, "Yes, Dad is on the computer playing his job". | Aaron announced that he wanted to go fishing, but he's "not strong enough to lift the fish." | Aaron asked me to open the shed so he could get some toys out. He needed the combination lock off, but told me he didn't know the "password". | Aaron informed me that he would eat his entire apple, except for the "peanut in the middle".
