Frame A Day '12: Week 18: April 29-May 5
April 29--Camel Crossing--Every spring, a very tiny petting zoo comes to the library parking lot. Trust, Earnest and I met up with Trust's friendfrom Sunday
School for a ride on Haji. First time for both of my kids on a camel,
but it probably won't be the last.
April 30--What Time is it, Mr. Fox?--The kids had a few rousing
rounds of "What Time is it, Mr. Fox?" before dinner. It's nice when
they can all play a game and have fun together. (The implication is that Trust is Mr. Fox and not pictured here.)
May 1--May the Force Be With You--The kids and Chretien received these light sabers for Christmas and every
once in awhile, they make an appearance and we are protected by whatever
forces they confer.
May 2--Fire Truck Furor--This morning our elderly neighbor was not feeling well and both a fire
truck and an ambulance came to their house next door. What is it about
fire trucks that keep most boys a captive audience? We do hope that our neighbor
is feeling better soon.
May 3--To Play with Clay--The kids had time before school to play with clay, or more specifically,
Model Magic. They made all sorts of swirly items, including this
necklace. I'm glad that Model Magic dries light, because that would be a
heavy necklace to wear.
May 4--Puppet Party--Another Friday night at our local children's museum. Tonight they had
quite a few fun activities for the kids to enjoy, all centering around women whose careers center around math and science...count
us in! These activities included paper making with an "Egyptian" woman,
creating a vernal pool and Trust's favorite--puppet making with
recyclable materials. She worked for an hour and made a puppet for
herself as well as her two brothers.
May 5--No Diapers? Go Dumbo!--At almost age 4 and after many false starts, Imp is still not potty
trained. However, in the past few days, he has stepped up his game and
has stayed clean and dry almost all the time during the day. As a
reward, Chretien took him to ride on Dumbo at Toys R Us. Let's hope this
is the beginning of the end of diapers...forever!
