Outside With Sticks


Sort of.

Rerun was outside playing with bubbles on the back porch, and Thumper went outside to join him.  Next thing I knew, Thumper was carefully setting up the leftover logs that we had carted up from the woodpile in rows.  There were two different spots Thumper was working in.

Once he had them set up, Rerun came over.

And then Rerun kicked them over, much to Thumper’s delight.

And then Thumper set it all up again.  I have no idea how long this lasted, but by the time I was getting pictures, they had a well-established routine.

It was nice to see them create their own little game with each other.  Even better – Ane and Tad were out riding bikes, and they took a ride around the block together by themselves.  It was the first time Tad had ridden his bike out of our cul-de-sac, and I was glad that Ane was willing to take him along.

It’s nice to see the two teenagers cooperate and have fun together, too.

Flashback Friday


Rerun is going to be “Student of the Week” on Monday, which means we had to make a poster for him to take to class.  Since it is so close to his birthday, I decided it would be fun to post pictures from each birthday, with his birthday cake/treat, along the edges of the poster itself.

And here they are for all of you to see.

1st birthday:

2nd birthday:

3rd birthday:

4th birthday:

5th birthday:

6th birthday:

7th birthday:

8th birthday:

What will he choose for his 9th birthday!  You’ll have to wait and see!

Pi Day!


We have pie.

These came from our favorite local bakery.  We are also having pizza.  That counts as a type of pie, right?

Never let it be said that I passed up an opportunity to eat pie.

Weird Wednesdays


Well, here we go.

The kids now have full days on Wednesdays again to compensate for all the snow day instructional hours lost.

Which meant poor Thumper fell asleep on the bus on the way home, poor kid.

It also makes the Wednesday therapy schedule a little tighter, but it’s only for a few months.  We can deal.

The one nice thing is that because the kids come home later, I can get some errands done earlier in the day.  And I manage to buy less when Rerun isn’t trying to add stuff to the cart.  Go figure.
