we had Flintstones.
And Bowser's Inside Story.
And Encaustic Art!
Let me just tell you how fun this was!
I had been meaning to play with wax since this fall, but we just hadn't gotten around to it, yet-- Trevelyn loves wax. I'd been thinking Create! and Play!, and then before the holidays my girlfriend Aubrey was telling me about Encaustic Art. It had a name! :)
I asked Trev if he'd like to play this morning, and of course he wanted to.
Not one disaster, friends.
I was a little nervous, as melted wax is a big deal - potentially disastrous. I am very familiar with wax - have worked with it many, many times - and I was concerned about tossing my babes into the melting pot.
"Well," I thought, "I'll just do what I can, and hope for the best!"
Trevelyn armed himself and went off into the Wild, Wild World this afternoon.
Alright - our neighborhood isn't really wild - but I can tell you armed with Jengo Fett's laser gun and his imagination, he's bound to have a few wild adventures before he comes back home for his soup.
Benjamin Fraklin was watched, again. Trev likes that one very much.
Maddie snuck away while he was Occupied.
Trev and I looked at optical illusions.
I teased him by asking where the top of the stairs was. :)
We played a little with Mighty Mind (another great math game!)
I read Eyewitness Readers: Invaders From Outer Space - Real Life Stories of UFO's to Trevelyn. When I was done reading the stories, he picked it up, and started reading to me - about how Grays are the most common, about ships, etc, etc. :)
And now we're off to watch DaVinci.
We'll see you tomorrow.
