Bird Watchin'

BB's class has been learning about birds lately - and doing some really cool bird-related projects. He's made binoculars out of toilet paper rolls, played in egg, watched eggs hatching and more. He can even name a bunch of birds on sight (bluejays, cardinals, etc.). Here are some pictures of the activities.

Making binoculars out of toilet paper rolls.
 Cutting string for birds to find and put in their nests.

 Taking pictures of morning doves and their babies.

 Reading about birds.

 Scooping bird seed.

Playing in egg.


The other night BB fell asleep after some exhausting "note" taking. Must have been thinking hard on some good figures.

Another Random Thing in the Fridge

This time fake pirate gold, or a penny as it is called by our little pirate.

Uh-ho. Someone is bored.

I love this picture of BB.

So I started playing with it.

PhotoShop is fun.

Imagine if I had skills.

He Strikes Again

I totally know how this went down. BB was building something - probably a house, that's what he wants to do when he grows up - and got thirsty. He went to the fridge to grab a pop - his latest beverage of choice, I'm a terrible parent - and in the race to quench his thirst, left his drill in the fridge. Happens to the best of us. (And makes me laugh every time.)

Out of the Mouths of Babes

I think this is a sign that Billy and I are doing something right as parents.

The First Snow!

It's only a little, but some snow actually stuck yesterday!
Whew! Now BB can tell us what he wants for Christmas.
He said he couldn't tell us before because there wasn't any snow.

We had a few spoonfuls of the snow for breakfast ...

... and we liked it!
