My sister also groomed our dog Sadie and later at home, I mentioned to Everett I still hadn’t paid her and needed to send her a check. He dashed off and later emerged with this picture of Sadie (left) and money (circle with person in it). Also, he wrote Sadie near the top after apparently practicing the letter a many many times. 😜
E wanted to let me know he’s a climber. This is C’s new office by the way. And E’s, his desk is relegated to that little closet shelf and chair. They cleared out all their toys, picked a few favorites, and told me to put the last bag of them in the basement.
We’ve been too busy lately and the kids are starting to show it. Must slow down now! C went with E to his yoga class at co-op and E actually stayed in there without me for the first time this school year. He just needs someone from his family nearby I suppose!
E was inside putting on his “bootsies” when he apparently decided our slowly disentegrating foyer tiles needed to be taken apart. I managed to put them all back in place except this area, which had crumbled. Looks like this project is moving up on our to do list!
We had poetry teatime Monday and read Emily Dickenson, which was fairly over the boy’s head but they enjoyed listening to the poems at least! At least C did, E kept piping up with random thoughts about everything in the world. Gotta love four year olds!
C recently became reinterested in finger knitting with a lucet so he’s been making “scarves” for everyone. 😄
E changed his mind about going on an errand with me yesterday and drew me a picture instead: “Mama, actually I don’t want to go. But I made this picture to comfort you!” He ended up coming with me instead of the picture.
C was quite happy with the dresser. Now they can both reach all their clothes! We’ve had taller dressers for years which meant I needed to assist half the time with getting outfits. It’s not a pretty dresser but I have plans for it and it easily fits all their clothes (and the things from E’s treasure drawer!)
We met some friends at the park for lunch and playing, then went for a hike.
It was slippery and muddy and then! Then! C discovered a new “mud source” about 20 feet away! Which was great fun for half the kids while some watched with fascinated disgust. C was obviously not just watching.
