We finally test drove the oven. For the first time. Sorry it took so long, Madd. (She got it from Santa for Christmas.)
We've read We Are All Born Free which is The Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Pictures - by Amnesty International.
Which led to this (a snippet of the book).
I showed the babes a balancing game.
Trev and I played Guess Who? That was fun! His second question was "Is your animal a reptile?" Which wiped out all but two animals on the board! Because it was. :)
We watched George of the Jungle
and checked on our crystals
and investigated. Might seem strange to you that I would include a picture of Pencil Sharpener Play, but Madd stood here (on a stool) and played with it, turning, taking off the lid, studying, putting the lid on, twisting... for at least fifteen minutes. And then I gave her a pencil.
All that studious play distracted her from attention to the nearby crystals, and they got knocked over. Ah well. We'll make more.
What do you do then, but look at them under the microscope?
We drove (repelled) magnets across the floor
studied U.S. Presidents (in our own way)
and made blueberry muffins.
"Hey... I'm gonna go downstairs and grab the microscope so I can look at those crystals, are you interested?"
"Yeah," answers Little Son.
"Anything else you want me to grab while I'm down there?"
"Maybe those bugs. The ones in the cubes."
"Okay... I'll get all of 'em."
So we looked at crystals, the ant, scorpion, and flower bug.
A yummy dinner... er, takeout.... and we have a Popcorn And A Movie date... Horton Hears A Who.
Til next time.
