Warm Up to Two

Tomorrow Mr. C turns two but we won't see him. So we celebrated a day early with some favorites: cupcakes and balloons. 


Love this little guy. He is sometimes quiet with the girls, an energetic outdoorsman and always a serious investigator.

Target Run

The girls are always appropriately enthusiastic when we need to make a target run. Today we went for a new box for the beans (these things have wowed me with their popularity- I will never mock the "sensory bin" idea again). 

So glad I had this big helper along!

Inspiration struck and we were able to practice a few other very important lessons: 1) finding a good bargain 2) finding a good shoe. 

These clearance beauties will be donated to our church youth group shoe drive.

Product Recommendation: Marble Run

First things first: any visit by the "package man" aka delivery truck drivers is a post of happiness in and of itself. The children are nearly frantic with anticipation. The Littles are happy with air pockets and big paper filler. 

The older kids look forward to the real thing. Today: Marble Run. Colorful and easy to put together like Legos, but interchangeable enough to keep things entertaining day after day.
