We’ve been rather busy lately and - woo hoo - I think I may have finally emerged from the fog of my headache-induced wintersleep. I started playing soccer again and both Effie and Fergus are really taking to the game like never before as well. Eff enjoys drills that involve lots of running and dribbling and Ferg is really keen on tackling, booting the ball really hard and making “key saves”, judo style.
Ferg’s juggling skillz and self-filmed dribbling:
We all went and saw Grease last weekend (massively exciting photo of empty set below):
Oooh, Monopoly has recently been excavated from the crawl space. I love this game and the kids are loving it too ever since playing some wacky Canadian version up at MattSamandNoah’s. The only problem is that the games last so long forcing us to keep the board out over a long period of time. This really cuts into our nightly tidying/ cleaning policy (cue laugh track).
And today, Gillian and Effie found Original 6 NHL Monopoly at a garage sale!?!
The garden grows...
We've continued with a bit of cycling but until Gillian gets her new bike (old one stolen), it's a bit difficult to go on family rides...
The clubhouse gained a few more bits last weekend:
Effie's popsicle stick version of a fort:
The caterpillars are now in the chrysalis stage:
But one eager beaver has already butterflied up:
Bye bye hotdog-mustard-relish...
But most important of all... I’ve been wondering a lot lately why people have boxes of kleenex in the back of their vehicles, up by the window. Perhaps others have wondered the same thing!?!?! I mean, come on people, is that box o' nose-blowers really all that accessible? The reason this bothers me so much is that I recently realized I go through a lot of tissues – I’m constantly blowing my nose! Easy access to kleenex is something that is always on my mind. In fact, counting the office, the house and various vehicles, I currently have no fewer than 14 boxes of kleenex on the go. Fascinating stuff!
