talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Pirates and geese and bears-- oh my!

Today was a really fun, full, happy day. We spent the morning with our friends Annie Rose and Sharon today, and it was fabulous! Sometimes we remember to bring the camera on outings like these, and sometimes we forget. I'm glad today we brought it, because there was much to see! In addition to pretending to be pirates, big black bears, geese, squirrels, Native Americans, and friends at a tea party, we also enjoyed a lovely brunch full of blueberry waffles and eggs. Thanks, ladies!

From there Nora got a little shuteye until Fiona's early-reader book group at the library. She and fourteen other beginning readers discussed Ted Arnold's Hi, Fly Guy! They talked about what made a great pet, and what made an annoying pest. She also drew her favorite kind of pet in the world for a Shrinky-Dink keychain. (Here's a hint-- they're real-live kittens whose names rhyme with Velda and Divy). Fiona came home requesting to dictate a chapter story about how we came to acquire our beloved cats. She's not finished, but so far so good!

Shortly after taquitos tonight both girls collapsed into bed. And if their dance clothes were ready for tomorrow morning, I would too!
