After looking through the book, my dad mentioned to me that there were a few experiments in this book AND that he had some other experiments Luke would like. My dad suggested that before the book was due, the kiddos & I should come over one day after picking up Luke from the bus stop (just one more reason I love 1/2 day kindergarten). Well, today was that day!
So, after the bus arrived with some cute kindergartners, the kiddos & I headed to my parents' house. The day, up until about 4:00 this afternoon, was windy but decently warm. Around 4:00ish or so, a cold front moved in, and the temperature went south in a hurry. The wind also picked up even more. SO, knowing the forecast, we picked up lunch at "Subway". We went & ate at a park, and then, the kiddos had time to play one last time outside (at least for this week).
And, true to Kate's personality, she was telling us "No" very loudly. "Why," you might ask? Who knows! It's just Kate, and though we love her immensely, sometimes, her antics are annoying -- Ha!
Kate took a bit to get brave enough to go down this slide. I'm not sure why it scared her so much, but it did. She ended up liking it!
After we got back to my parents' house, Kate went down for a nap, and Luke & his Papa Andover started experimenting. I could most definitely not explain to you everything they did, but I know Luke had some smiles. Overall, I'd say it was a good day and worth our time!
And then, to top it all off, the electricity went out at Marc's office. So, he got to leave work early! Since my parents live a lot closer to the city Marc works than we do, Marc & I decided to make an impromptu supper trip to "Red Robin" as a family! Woo-Hoo!!!!
And then, because it's now SO much colder than earlier today, my two favorite guys (Marc & Luke) brought in firewood and started a fire in our fireplace once we got home!
(And, you can tell that we have a little girl living here based on the fact that a pink doll stroller is in the center of our family room. BUT, I wouldn't have it any other way)!
