We are currently learning to count up to the number 20, and I thought it would be fun to watch a Leapfrog movie on Netflix about counting. It went over really well with the kids. All three of them! Marcus was quite enthralled with it until about halfway through when he fell asleep.
I’d call it a wonderful success.
(Now if I could only get the mathtastic song out of my head…)
Today was a beautiful day. The sun was shining, the grass was green and leaves slowly fell all around us.
Life is good.
He was born in the bathtub and he lives to be in the water. The second he hears any water running he comes running!
If I didn’t know any better, I would think this boy was a fish.
Thomas found a balloon amongst our science supplies and wanted to play with it. Well, Molly and Marcus soon caught on and, of course, wanted their own so off to the store we went.
Safely home several hours and several chorus’ of happy birthday later, we had our own unbirthday party, complete with balloons.
It was a good thing. (Wait, is that trademarked my Martha? Oh well…)
Our love of photography apparently runs in the family. Or maybe it dances.
My mother broke out the photos that she carries around with her in her wallet today. Molly decided that they would look great all lined up as she danced around them.
I can’t explain it, but at the time it made perfect sense.
Well, we had our appt. today with the orthopaedic surgeon, and the jury is still out whether or not it’s actually fractured or if it’s just a bad sprain… but, since the cast comes in a lovely shade of pink with purple stripes, we are playing it safe rather than be sorry later.
Bonus is that this is a waterproof cast, so we can shower and take baths as normal. They even told us she could go swimming in it!
Here’s hoping she doesn’t get sick of it before October 26th… because that’s the next time we’ll get to see her actual arm.
Molly got three photos taken of her today. Not these three, taken by me, but the three that we got a commemorative cd made of showing on my computer in the background, taken by a lovely radiologist in the x-ray center.
She’s now in a splint until tomorrow when we have an appointment with an orthopaedic doctor.
She’s a brave one. I would have never guessed that she had an elbow fracture. Ah, motherhood.
He keeps getting older…
Will someone tell him to stop..
Slow down? A little?
My parents bought this huge wipe pack at Sam’s Club. While visiting there today, Marcus thought it doubled as a great seat.
Somehow, I don’t think this was the bonus they had in mind when designing the sides of the box, but whatever works! Right?
One of the best things about homeschooling has been our bedtime ritual. We went from not having any set schedule to establishing a bedtime and story overnight.
It was received amazingly well. They actually beg me to read to them everynight.
Life is good.
