According to David, Archer's first word was dog. As the blog title suggests, he is raised among 2 dogs. Even though Archer is exposed to dogs on a daily basis, he still reacts with glee and surprise any time he encounters one. See below. The last picture is taken right after he got licked by this dog and right before he started turning around in circles.

Taking a Car to Bed

I thought most kids took a nice soft stuffed animal to bed with them. Archer has plenty of those, but chose instead to make his night time friend a hard plastic car.

Cheer Up

Last week I was upset. I had to pay twice on an airfair to a wedding because I made a mistake on a time change. I also was yelled at by a mother of a student because she disagreed with a detention. Not a huge boo hoo day, but I was feeling down.

Although I was a little weepy right before I picked him up, I tried to be upbeat and of course was thrilled to see him when I picked him up from Ms. Jackson's. He must have picked up on my emotions because as soon as we got home, he got a clean pair of my underwear and stuck it on his head. He then pranced around with the broom making me laugh and laugh and laugh. He is the sweetest little boy ever. I love him so much.

Going Shopping for Rocks

Archer has learned from the women in his life (Granny Goose, Gran, Great Granny Blah Blah, Great Granny Navarin, Aunt Mary and Mom) how important shopping is. After all, Granny Goose's shopping mantra is 'shopping is a sport'. Archer takes his sports very seriously.

Here he is shopping for rocks this past weekend.

Tennis might be in Archer's blood. It might be his destiny to play at Wimbledon. Both of his grandfathers are avid tennis players. Both his father and his Uncle Hugh played tennis in high school and college.

Then again, his mother and his Aunt Mary never took to the sport despite many years of coaching. We scuttled too much and never were able to get to the ball fast enough to swing.

It seems as though Archer at least liked the tennis rackets during his first outing to the courts. He kept trying to give his Boo Dad and daddy a new one.

Like a young Agassi, Archer does not wear all whites on the court.
