i finally had a little more energy today (this cold has about done me in at times)... and the Daddy was home, so there you go.
surely a recipe for a bit of Lively, anyway.
we started our day with making banana muffins.
there were a couple of things in the interim.
after we'd sampled a few warm and yummy muffins,
three of us went downstairs to find a few Interesting Things to play with today. (like everyone else, we're on day...whatever... of Rain and Dark.)
each of us had a few things to bring up...
first up was the Young Scientist Series kit, Static Electricity (Maddie's choice).
went through all ten experiments in an hour or thereabouts.
Maddie ran off to play with her Daddy, and Trev and I had a shot at Exago, which he brought up.
we've never really liked the game, as we didn't really understand how it works, but that changed today, and he and i played several games. i imagine it will be a regular, now. (always good to have more Regulars!)
it's one of those Wow, I love these kids!! days. you know the ones.
you laugh like a dozen times at their clever quips.
you smile and hoot at their personalities.
you're thoroughly enchanted and charmed the rest of the time.
you get to feel sooo lucky that you don't have to miss any of it. :)
we all three played a game that Madeleine invented,
played 123 Game (Diego)
Maddie and I played Bingo (I brought that one upstairs, I thought Madd may enjoy it)...
she and I played Mystery Garden,
and then she had a rowdy game of hide-and-seek with her Daddy,
and some rasslin'.
an' then the two of them scooted off to the library.
Trevy and i played first Stixx
and then The Amazing Mammoth Hunt.
Ben 10 et al was gotten out of The Cupboard,
practicing accents -and engineering skills- with Thomas and Friends on the kitchen floor.
and Mama built with Citiblocks.
did you see this coming?
dinosaur puzzle. rarr.
and computer play.
brownies are promised for dessert, so i'd better get on that.
i'm quite certain that won't be all for today,
but you know.
'tis certianly good enough.
