Why can't recycling day be EVERY day?

In September Richard was given the loan of an iPad Mini for the upcoming year:  the School of Nursing (where he's a clinical instructor this fall) is considering experimenting with these devices for evaluating students and other purposes.

Richard has quickly found some significant uses for the one he got:  mainly checking email and Facebook.

It also takes great pictures!  Rich has got in the habit of taking the iPad outside whenever he and Jonathan are out, so that he can capture any important moments.  Here's one:  getting the blue boxes ready for recycling day, the highlight of Jonathan's week.


  1. What a great thing to look forward to weekly too!

  2. You wouldn't believe how excited he gets each week. Actually makes me glad it's only once a week. :-)

  3. I love how his hands are clasped together in this picture. Such poise! I'm looking forward to more pictures of Jonathan's important moments. Delightful! :-)

    1. Thanks, Adriana. I know a lot of little boys like trucks and stuff, but you would not BELIEVE the joy Jonathan gets out of garbage day. And he gives joy, too. There is one particular recycling-truck driver who doesn't always see Jonathan on his way to school because of the timing of the route. But one day not long ago we approached the truck and I heard a voice say, "Hi, Buddy!" The sun was shining behind the truck so I couldn't see the driver's face -- all I could see was his huge Cheshire-cat-like smile! He was so happy to see Jonathan and vice versa. It was a special moment to see them both grinning from ear to ear.
