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.

Playing in the street?!

On the one hand, our sense of community was strong enough this year to finally get us out of our house and down a couple blocks to my church's awesome street fair-- even in drizzly rain! On the other hand, the children's games part was from 5:30-8:30, and bedtime at our house is 7:30, and dinnertime is always leisurely, so we still didn't spend a huge amount of time there.

But that's really too bad, because there was a magician, and music, and children's games (one even being assisted by our neighbor Sydney. We played-- everyone wins!) a "stump the teacher" game, teen skateboarding area, talent show, food that turns your mouth blue, cake walk... you name it! It was huge. It was jolly. We met a lot of neighbors we knew, faces we kind of knew, and nice people we just met-- even in just that short span of time. People come to this fair prepared to make friends.

As for Fiona and Nora, they were mainly content to take it all in, but Nora really wanted to bounce in "that monkey thing" (until she did it, then promptly and loudly changed her mind-- see photo above) and Fiona won a squirrel straw playing Plinko. Yes, I know. A squirrel straw.
