back to school

I don’t know who is more excited. Bella can’t wait to hang out with her friends and I can’t wait for a little time to myself.

nature school open house

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

Bella will be in school every morning this year. She’s headed back to last year’s school for three days and going two days at a local park preschool. Last week we went to an open house and she didn’t want to leave. I’m guessing she’s going to really enjoy it.

lazy weekend

Sunday, July 25th, 2010

We didn’t do much this weekend. Friday night was date night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Saturday and Sunday were both low key. We watched movies, I played with yarn, Bella spent hours with her Color Wonder and T. researched beach houses for our September vacation. We did manage to get outside for a little while.

Second week of zoo camp was a success. The summer is zooming by fast!

zoo camp: coats of many colors

Friday, July 16th, 2010

Today was the last day of Bella’s zoo camp: Coats of Many Colors. This week she touched a dove, a mouse and a rat. She refused to touch Spiny Bear the hedgehog, though. Her favorite was feeding the goats their breakfast.

The Zoo Crew helped the kids make scrapbooks of the things they saw this week. Isn’t that a neat idea? Here is Bella’s peacock.

dinosaur train

She goes into a tv trance whenever the show airs.

You ask her, “What’s another word that begins with the letter ‘i’?” and she says, “Iguanodon!”

At dinner she says, “Mom’s a vegetarian just like Ned the brontosaurus.”

You hear la-la-loooo and graaaak coming from her room during “quiet” time.

She insists that you help her draw the entire Pteranodon family. (Dad drew the short straw for this request.)

The dinosaur in the middle is Buddy. He’s a T-Rex. Am I the only one who thinks Mrs. Pteranodon has some explaining to do?
