Rose Pink asked if they could do a craft. Like what, I say? Um, paint sticks from the front lawn, she says. So she did. And Nut Brown painted a picture on his paper instead of painting sticks.
Mr. Brown and the kids put together and played with a balloon on a straw on a piece of yarn. Science. Propulsion. Rockets. Lots of fun. Here's Nut Brown helping him prepare it for a run. (Thank you to Grandma and Grandpa for that book of science experiments you gave us for Christmas!)
Nut Brown asked if we could play cards on Sunday afternoon. Rose Pink took this picture of me contemplating my hand. Not that there's a whole lot of strategy in this particular card game... but we had a great time playing together. As one of our acquaintances here says, older kids are the best. Because you can do fun things like this with them. We played Swap and Uno and enjoyed the sunshine.
