The boys' cousins from St. Louis surprised them over Christmas break and came for a visit without the Black boys knowing it. The Black boys wanted to return the surprise, so we drove to St. Louis for spring break to surprise their cousins. While there, we did lots of fun, St. Louisey things, like the City Museum. I have blogged about it before, but it is a remarkable wonderland of ladders and slides, caves and hidey holes. It's really just a fantastically giant playground for kids of any age.
Solomon faced a few fears and did a few hard things, ending in lots of fun and increased courage. He climbed some big ladders in order to be rewarded with some awesome slides.
The youngest 3 enjoyed the block area.
