It's hard to go back in my pictures and make sense of a lot of them when I'm trying to write a blog. There a lot of stuff that happens that doesn't all tie together. They are just little pieces of life that happen over days but were worth noting. I'm going to try and put a few of those together here rather than blogging about each of them. Maybe 'Mishmash' may have been a better title! I'll keep it in mind for when it happens again!
Adyson plays with everything except the toys that we brought with us. She plays with rocks and we have quite the collection on our back deck because of it. You have to watch when you step out or else you'll be roller skating across the deck and wondering what happened! One day she took her rocks and made a trail for us. She's very much about order and pattern right now. Once she started this trail it needed to run all the way through. She even went and found some more rocks so that she could complete it.
Bailey and Keiran like to work outside because it's so nice, why not?!! Bailey brought her ukulele with her and she often goes outside to play. The two of them will often head outside after supper and dishes are done to sit in the dark and listen to music. Bailey is getting really good on her uke! Keiran is getting really good at playing music on his speaker too..... ;-)
This cute boy just needed a pic because he got a new hat!
I found a praying mantis laying on the ground and brought it home so the kids could check it out. He isn't actually dead, but almost. After taking a picture of him we placed him the bamboo behind the house.
A mother bird laid her eggs in one of the little 'lighthouses' around the field. They didn't end up making it to the point of hatching because the field is way too busy for the mama to sit in the nest and feel safe.
We got a good rainstorm one afternoon and the kids couldn't resist playing in it. There are 3 girls under that umbrella! Even Keiran couldn't resist getting wet!
