There's been a lot of counting going on around here these days. Zach has been revelling in the thrill of numbers. Sitting at the top of the slide, he calls out, "One! Two! Goooooo....." Lots of fun. Eating his dinner, he counts off mouthfuls. "One! Two! One!" Running laps through the living - dining - front hall loop, he bellows numbers as he thunders past. "One! Two! Two! Two! One!" Just imagine how much fun he'll have when he knows more than two numbers! Adam and Kyle are counting heavy machines through my front window. There must have been an awful lot of activity out there this morning, because suddenly I hear Adam's voice. "A TRILLION!!!" Kyle builds on this, "a trillion and ONE, a trillion and TWO, a trillion and THREE!" Adam catches the pattern and continues, "A trillion and FOUR!" Not to be outdone by his little brother, Kyle changes tactics. "Infinity! Infinity and beyond!" (Buzz Lighyear will never really die.) Adam is unfazed: "Infinity and beyond and ONE...!"
