We had yet another fun Dr Seuss week. The weather was beautiful and sunny on Saturday and Sunday so I had to take advantage and lay in the Hammock with Maya and a book. This has become my favorite thing to do other than coloring and yoga in my down time.
Wednesday was Dr. Theodore Seuss Geisel's birthday and we celebrated by ready his biography. I can't believe how interested Jack was in this book. I read to him for 30 minutes every night and this was the first nonfiction book I have read to him at bedtime. I will have to sneak more in. Jack read a different Dr Seuss book every day this week for his reading and then we made Oobleck on Friday. We found an experiment on pinterest to see which objects will sink or float in the oobleck too. Jack thought this was super cool.
We had to watch a friend's 2 yr old and 4 yr old Friday for 2 hrs and I know both kids like Thomas the Train , so I brought out all of Jack's old trains that he hasn't played with in 5 years. Jack was jealous that they were playing with his stuff and he played with them. This was too funny to watch.
Then on Saturday I had to do oral cancer screenings at the Franklin health fair. It was super busy this year and went by fast. Then I went to the book sale at the library. I was after the Alex Cross series by James Patterson. I made a list of the 23 books that are in the series and I found all of them except 4. Score! I like to have a series at home to read when I'm waiting on the library books to come in that I have reserved. Then I downed some coffee and we drove to Morgantown to Jack's friend Nathan's birthday party . Jack met Nathan and all the kids that were there at the Green River Homeschool Co-op and he just fit in and really hit it off with these kids,especially Nathan. Jack and Nathan have already asked Mandy and I when they can hang out again. The kids played video games and played outside. They had hot dogs that were made on a super cool outdoor grill that they made. Then they played laser tag , had cake and ice cream and more video games. Jack was sad when I said it was time to go, and he was goung to argue with me , I interrupted him and said , "I have been up since 5:30 am and it is 8 pm and we have a 40 minute drive home . You have played for 4 hours it's time to go". I expected him to argue but he was compliant and fell asleep in the car within 5 minutes. We had a busy and fun week. We are ready for spring weather.
