Goose pulled out a box of wooden craft pieces and started making robots. And, of course, Binky had to make some, too! These are his robots! The one on the right is a bunny rabbit robot, in case you were wondering!
Goose made these three. My favorite is the one on the left. What is he staring at? They will be painted tomorrow!
Lunch! I sometimes think the kids are getting too old for this sort of thing. But I think I still have another year or so! Yeah!
They will never be too old for homemade popsicles! Goose prefers lemonade and Binky likes smoothy pops. He calls them smopcicles!
And I bet you didn't know that lego characters play chess! Well they do! And are quite good at it, too! Binky and I have been playing chess for a couple of days in a row now. He saw his legos sitting on the table and decided to use them for chess pieces. His was the knight and mine was a pawn. This gave me a great idea for making a homemade chess set out of legos!!!!!!!!!! But don't tell Binky!!
Goose and I made felted wishing stones today! We were inspired by The Magic Onions. We are going to try felted soap next!
We also made some sun prints with doilies!
This is Beyesera. She is a faerie who rides a beautiful horse named Beyosongaya. And she loves acorn caps!
This is where Beyesera likes to play with her friends!
And this is Easter the gnome! She lives in a watermelon! A lucky gnome, indeed!
We had a great day! We started at the library where we picked up Robin Hood, some new comic books and a lot of books about cats! All kinds of cats! From tigers to lions and cheetahs. Binky said he wants to learn about every kind of cat in the world! From there we stopped for a scoop of ice cream. We found a new shop where scoops are one dollar each! I know, unheard of, right? After running some more errands we headed home and had some fun creating and playing. And when Daddy got home we went out for tacos! And, yes, more ice cream! It is summer, you know!
Tonight we are hoping to catch the Perseid Meteor shower! We weren't able to see it last night because of all the fog. We are going to get up really early, 3am, and head up into the hills to get above the city lights. The kids are so funny! They tried to go to bed in the clothes they are going to wear when we get up to see the meteors! It's a warm night so sweatshirts and sweatpants aren't going to be very comfortable. They do not see my logic! But I'm getting used to that!
It was the final day of summer camp with our dojo and we spent the day here!
We were surrounded by the most beautiful Samurai armor! I could not take pictures but you can see some of them here. These are just some of the many photos I took today! The most fun was had in a room where kimonos could be worn and GO could be played. There was even a Kendo, which means "way of the sword," demonstration. Very cool!
