The life and times of the Godfrey ten.

Jerms is in the house

Jerms is Jeremy’s nickname, everyone one of us has one. I have to live with super cool dad dude, it is a little annoying be very self affirming. Well today is Jerm’s adoption day, so we have to have a page for just him today. Jeremy is very athletic playing basketball, baseball, and his favorite, soccer, of which he played comp this year. I already posted some pics of that or you can see them on our facebook page. So if you recall, for adoption day they get to choose the meals, Jerms choose eggs for breakfast, corn dogs and tots for lunch and chicken stir fry for dinner. I am glad he won’t have cholesterol issues like his dad. 

Finally Jerms got to pick out one gift. Remember how I posted a while back that my retirement goes to Legos, well, Jeremy choose Legos. Our rule is that the gift can’t go over a certain amount. Well the one he wanted was 30% over the max price, so Jerms did some quick bargaining with mom and yada yada yada he will be next in line for a bailout from my tax payer dollars. Oh well, at least we get a nice Star Wars ship out of the deal. Better than getting nothing like the last two bailouts.

Whaaaaa? Great pic of Jerms working on his ship. It had over 1500 pieces! ( not sure about that just guessing, it looked like a lot)

The proud papa and his mother ship. He even dressed up for the occasion.

Finally a close up. This took him about 5 hours to build. He told me it hurt his legs sitting so long. I told him duh? They are called Legos, derived from the Latin LegOws, due to the pain associated with playing with them so long. The word over time became Americanized to Legow, then in order to fit on the packaging of the original small boxes, it became Lego. I bet you didn’t think you would ever learn something reading this blog did you? You just can’t help yourself.
