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!
