Aaaah, the Very Merry Month Of May!
Maddie started her day industriously building shapes and form with the geoboard and rubberbands.
She insisted we admire her "isn't this awesome?" design.We (her Daddy and I) did.
Trev and I shared reading time. Among them was a story called 20,000 Baseball Cards Under the Sea. Great fun, that one.
Mama delved into a couple of books: Keeping a Nature Journal (such a beautiful book) and Fizz, Bubble, and Flash. Claire's book I've owned for a few years, but I've decided that I need to have my own copy of Fizz, it's just too full of wonderful info to not have a permanent home on our shelves. (Did you know that the cause of Beethoven's deafness and semi-madness was lead poisoning??? Well, maybe you did, but I didn't.)
I started to doze off (I'm recuperating from a nasty-wicked bout of Food Born Illness -yesterday- my husband, the Chef, won't let me call it food poisoning, as he says it's a misnomer and therefore incorrect) and further my getting-wellness, and then realized it was MayDay!
Up we go, then.
We made our cleaners. (a great way to celebrate MayDay, that cleaning...)
Into the backyard!
Maddie and I gathered flowers for her headdress,
and Trev and I gathered greens for his.
We played with bubbles
and we danced and sang around the Maypole (we made up the song).
We've gathered delicious blossoms for our home
spotted butterflies - in our Butterfly Garden!-
and then Maddie hosted Tea while Trev went exploring with Blondie. (Evidently on their Explorations today they were building Pies out of mud, leaves, blossoms, and water.)
Mama found chive flowers
and that the new lilac (planted last year) is white. I'd forgotten.
There was baseball
and Maddie brought in something (an ant) to look at under the mic-fro-scope.
We lost it before it made it to the slide, so we checked out dandelion fluff and a blade of grass, instead.
More play with Blonde Friend.
A beautiful day.
An' prob'ly we'll see you tomorrow.
