We hung our snowflakes up today and they wanted to draw a snow scene on their chalkboards.
I think they made a good choice. 😉
"I’m a square!"
"Nope! I pick up trash and make them into cubes!"
*Thomas then continued on to demostrate his cubing abilities.*
The mice were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
… Wait, that’s not right.
We have a bird feeder in our front yard. Marcus can stand there for hours and watch them.
He’s talking more everyday, but he can sign bird like no one else’s business.
One of Molly’s favorite dolls lost her arm in an infortunate accident almost a year ago. It was not the fixable kind of break (we tried several times with glue and even duck tape) and the poor thing has never quite been the same.
While we explained to Molly that sometimes things break and can’t be fixed and it’s okay, all the while Molly swore up and down that she still was her dolly and it was okay… it wasn’t.
Today, Molly finally broke down and said she was sad that poor dolly was armless on the one side, so I did like any other normal mom would have done in that situation…
I sewed her a new one.
I even made it with a little bump at the end that fits into the socket that once her old arm snuggly fit.
It moves, it poses in place, and it’s stuffed with lovely wool.
Molly saw it finished, gave her a big squeeze and exclaimed, "She’s more huggy now!"
That’s the look Molly had on her face when she saw the opening of her first ballet today.
I’m pretty sure I had the exact same expression looking at her.
Marcus seems to feel right at home with our new red kitchen.
I can’t possibly imagine why…
Marcus’ favorite car is Francesco Bernoulli. Francesco prides himself on being super fast.
Today we covered the "AD" word family.
Not only did Thomas get a total kick out of writing words like "BAD", but he drew Grover from his favorite book (The Monster at the End of This Book.) when he "got a little mad" and said… Alright! No more Mr. Nice Guy!
