Catching Up

It's almost the end of September, and I never got around to putting up the August calendar! Life has been crazy busy lately. So here goes:

Blueberries figured prominently in our lives at the end of July and into August. We made a couple of trips to a local pick-your-own farm, and Ben had a great time. He spent as much time in the pool as he could manage, and ran through the sprinklers on the 20th. He has developed a keen interest in M&M's, as you can see on the 12th and 16th. As of the 27th, we had added "running the bases" to his nightly wear-out routine (a last attempt to burn off some energy before bath time). This involves running vigorously between points such as "ottoman first base" and "Mommy and Daddy's bed second base". On the 28th we must have read If You Give a Pig a Pancake, although not for the first time -- it's been a fan favorite since spring. On the 30th, after several weeks of searching, we managed to find an appropriate Benny-sized chair. I must draw your attention to the 21st because I am inordinately pleased with my rendering (in broad-tipped marker, I remind you) of Mary Poppins. Ben now loves the movie Mary Poppins almost as much as Yellow Submarine. (Tonight in the bath he was singing "Sister Suffragettes".)

I love the "running the bases" idea! My boys usually run in circles around the couch until dizzy, which serves the same purpose!

I just bought the "If You Give a Mouse a Muffin" series through Scholastic (the best thing about preschool: access to cheap books through book clubs). I think we got four books for $8. I haven't read them before, so they'll be a good addition to our library!

A kid that likes Mary Poppins and the Beetles- gotta love him! Too sweet.
