Alan has taken a new interest in music these days, particularly Kidz Bop songs. His favorites are “Fight Song,” “Thunder,” “Just Like Fire,” “Can’t Stop the Feeling!,” “Best Day of My Life,” and “Feel It Still” — all of which he’s heard during 1st grade dance breaks, which are a variation of more traditional stretch breaks.
Recently we purchased and downloaded all of these songs to our iPhone. We had our own dance party – featuring the “dancing water speakers” pictured above – right before Ohio State’s Cotton Bowl victory tonight over USC!
Taking advantage of the unseasonably warm weather today, Alan and I hit baseballs at the park. We also walked over to the Buckeye tree and continued to fill up our jar! Alan’s showing off the jar – and his hideout – above.
He also decorated his Christmas tree after Thanksgiving dinner!
Sometimes Alan accidentally combines “Ohio State” and “United States of America” and it comes out of his mouth as the “Ohio States of America.”
I like his Ohio-centric view of the country!
Last night Alan made me a very proud dad when he sat down next to me and watched [part of] an OSU game for the first time! It was a momentous night for Alan and I, as it was the first time Alan wanted to watch a sporting event on TV with me.
Alan told me that #1 on OSU — Braxton Miller — was our best player because he was wearing #1. I did not disagree!
#1 Ohio State beat Penn State 38-10 in the first ever “blackout” at the Shoe.
