At the park

Henry was riding a bouncy-airplane at the park when Luke climbed on the back.  Henry turned around to Luke and said, "You're too late.  I already took off."  And then Henry seemed kind of mad that Luke wouldn't get off!

Henry has long been reporting that some of his teeth are wiggly - the current count is four.  I guess having brothers who are losing teeth is so much fun he wants to join in, too.

Luke and Emmett are starting to learn how to type.  Right now they're using a free website, but they've been surprisingly willing to practice.  They also want to learn how to make mods for Minecraft.  These are little java programs to make small modifications to Minecraft.  Luke really wanted to get started, so I signed him up for Code Academy, a website with tutorials for a bunch of programming languages.  Their survey of users ages only went down to 13, so I clicked that box.  Emmett joined Luke a few minutes later, and they both worked at it for over an hour the first day.  Today Luke decided to do the typing some more, having realized that improving his typing is going to make coding a lot easier.  I guess I'll have to figure out the Minecraft mods thing to keep them on this path, because it's a good one!
