The girls are fascinated by these tiny polymer balls which stick to each other, and played for a couple hours making all kinds of stuff. The suspicious mom wonders what this stuff that kinda looks like dippin dots is made out of, but it’s hard to argue with hours of play.
One evening after supper, we took advantage of the warm breezy weather and walked around the big lake in town. Grandpa pointed out some turtles on a log which the girls found interesting. They also ran up and down hills, walked through sand and made Dad carry them some of the time. We saw many people enjoying the warmth and sunshine.
Dad’s work sponsored a weather festival that was open to families. The girls found the demonstrations interesting, the face-painting delightful and all the goodies overflowing. Unni even stood in front of the weather map and presented a forecast on “tv.” The girls brought home bags full of stuff! The first photo shows a weather balloon (white).
I resolved that when we moved we were going to try to meet lots of people, invite everyone we could over to our house, and play with as many kids as possible. We are very fortunate that we have met so many nice people in so many different ways, and even more fortunate that we have developed some wonderful friendships. Last week, Koma’s preschool buddy and his mom invited us to meet some of their friends. We had a blast! Due to other obligations, Koma and I left after a couple of hours, but we heard the rest stayed until 4 or 5 pm!
