Life. On Monday

"Wanna see me do flips?"

"Mom, do white and red make red?"
"Red is a primary color, remember?"
"But what makes red?"
"Nothing.  Remember what 'primary' means?"
"But how do you make it red?"
Ah, I see.  Uh.....  :)

Maddie started playing with bridges.
That reminds me...


painting


bubbles and angles

catapulting with a sapling.
and then more play with the catapult.


she ran and grabbed a piece of chalk, and we started marking where different things landed... clay, a ball of foil, a bent pingpong ball, pompoms...
So fun to see her make such interesting observations... and to see consistency with the different launches.

trampoline and hoop play

laundry bliss


talk of evolution

I got an idea that plaster might be a really great medium for carving, so I rounded up some bowls, and mixed some plaster of paris.

while that was setting up...

spying games for them.
with binoculars.

carving!
it works perfectly, by the way.  :)



Mama's turtle, in progress

"Mom, I need a magnifying glass."
Alright, then... let's find them.

veterinary play.



Dad's home from skiin'.

Quoridor!
with three.  (so fun with three!!)


more Hoops


History of the United States.


blueberries

and more bubbles.

I think that's about everything.

It's a pretty good life.

  2. Just thought I would mention bars of Ivory soap work really well for carving too.
