forts on the bed
cereal for breakfast
forts between the couches
jumping on the trampoline without socks or jackets…lots of sun
homemade soup for lunch
let’s watch a BBC movie about the amazon jungle (fungiu, bugs, monkeys, birds, native Amazonian people who hunt with poisonous mouth darts)
Pokemon videos on the internet
the big science crate makes an appearance (color mixing, potion making, different types of pipettes and why they work how they do, pH testing of different liquids, baking soda and vinegar blow up a balloon, what happens when we dump our colored potions on ice int he sink)
mama adds another coat of orange to the kitchen cupboards
let’s read every board book we own, plus a bunch of library books too
more trampoline play, this time with sleeping bags
a li’l bit of Mario Kart on the wii
supper (rice and beans and chocolate cake)
Set (an attribute group finding game that was too hard for Elijah a year ago. When he brought it out to try again tonight after 11 months of “it’s boring and too hard”, it was intuitive. He’s quite good at it, finding groups of like/different pairs readily and without prompting….again reinforcing the idea that when a person is developmentally ready to learn something, they will be receptive and learn it easily and quickly…)
a bedtime snack, teeth brushing and finally, an impromptu (as most things are around here) guitar lesson from Sean for Elijah.
A wonderful, busy, engaged and joyful day.
