Car Trip

When I clean I take the high chair and booster seats off of our kitchen chairs so I can clean them and dust the chairs.  Here's what Hannah and Sofia did with them:

 They went on a car trip.  I'm not entirely sure who was driving, but they seemed to have fun.

They played with them for at least 20 minutes.  It was a heaven send.  We had just gotten home from the beach and Sofia slept in the car for a few minutes, so she didn't want to take a nap.  My entire cleaning time disappeared, but they played together long enough to let me get at least a little cleaning done......and they had lots of fun.

Sofia has several fetishes (Is that how you say it?).  Anyway, she loves shoes...in particular shoes too big for her.  Usually it's my high heels, but she also likes to wear anything that is Hannah's.  She also really likes socks....used as mittens.  Here's a picture to show:

When she was still a small infant we had lost all of the baby mittens (or maybe I just didn't keep any since Hannah never wore them).  Anyway, to improvise, I always took a pair of socks and stuck them on her hands to keep her warm.  Maybe that's the cause of it?!

A New Use

Who knew there was so much you could use exercise bands for?

They seem to like it.  And it's a good workout for James....so I guess it works!

Laundry Day

Where's Sofia?!

This is what laundry day looks like at our house.  We get back from the laundromat and usually the girls entertain themselves for a few minutes while I get some of the folding done.  Luckily we have 2 laundry baskets.  Sofia still fits inside pretty well, but I'm not sure how long that will last.

1st Day of "Preschool"

Hannah has started "preschool."  It's not real preschool.  It's not even real joyschool.  But she's sure excited about it.  2 days a week a friend and I are taking turns with our 2 kids and doing some preschool activities with them.  Hannah has been looking forward to it for a LOOOONG time.  So,  here are a few pictures of her first day of school:

 Notice, she has a new backpack!  She carried it around all day with crayons and various supplies she needed for school!

 Here she's jumping up and down with anticipation waiting for school to start.

Here the 2 students are!  

Hannah was a little disappointed when she realized they were staying here with me for school, but she got over it pretty quickly.  After an hour worth of 'school' Jonathan was done and ready to play with toys.  Hannah, on the other hand, kept insisting we do more activities.  Hah!

We've only had school one day, but she's still excited for it, so I'll take that as a good sign.

Sunday Afternoon Stroll

Just about every Sunday evening we go for a walk.  It's so nice being able to walk through campus.   It's a nice, clean environment and we can let the girls loose.

It's great for letting them do some running

and jumping

and some ant finding

and a little swinging.
