Maddie-mine began her day with a bit of music and dancing
while waiting for her baked apple to be ready.
Baked apples (sliced thin and baked with butter and brown sugar and a sprinkling of cinnamon) make a fine breakfast on a cold winter's morn, let me just say.
There was more music, and--
"Wait a minute, Mom. I need to make a present."
"Mom.... where are those writing things??? Oh! Here they are."
"Can you get this ready for me?"
She wanted some practice, so I got out something for her to practice with.
And then something else. :)
She went on a Photo Exploration
and then back and forth (between projects),
and back and forth.
and Mario brothers on the computer (only for a minute - ???)
JumpStart (third grade)
Cavemen and Cookie Corners (Madeleine)
I don't know. Something to do with cavemen and slides and doctors and mountain climbing up ropes at "cookie corners".
(Curiously, the first appearance in a few days.)
Back to JumpStart.
Notice that he left the ds to play JumpStart. Ha! ; )
Harmonica and piano playin'
Where we rallied.
And had snow ball fights.
And lots of rounds of Red Light, Green Light.
And a few rounds of Mother, May I?
And snow angels.
And the children begged to know my hiding spot, but I did not tell! (I made it back to the base safely before they found me! heh heh heh.)
And a few more spins with little GTO,
and we were for home for warm baths and warm dinner and warm snuggles.
And.... dinosaur skeletons disguised as Pink Frosting.....
And life is so good.
And we'll prob'ly see you tomorrow.
