Thursday meanders into Friday
Wednesday night we had a lovely visit from two of our
favorite nieces. It was brief, but lovely to see them both.
Princess loves all her cousins very much.
Thursday passed quickly from a "crafty" type of day, to an all out
"rip all that stuff out of the closet and move it around day".
I pulled a good deal of Princess's room apart trying to
make more room for her current favorite toys.We made piles to freecycle and
a pile to send over to my cousin's daughter who is having a baby boy
in a couple of months.While I was cleaning, Princess played with her "see and spell",
colored,played with her water table, dressed all her stuffed animals in doll clothes and fed them a feast
in her play kitchen and ran a "marathon race" in the living room with a stuffed bunny on a leash.
While cleaning out her closet I found a huge stack of books that we received from a fellow freecycler
that I completely forgot about! I was reminded of my lofty goal of "organizing" all the books in our house, so I know that I have it on hand when I need it.
Princess helped me carry them downstairs and we will get the shelves better organized down there
later this month.
She was happy to look around her room this morning and see it was "much more tidy".
I even got some of the piles of "homeschooling stuff" in my kitchen more organized.
I still have more to do, but I'm making headway.
Princess had a very early (before 8 pm) night due to not feeling well.
Summer cold? Allergies? Not sure, she has a runny nose and her eyes were tearing, but no fever.
She slept through the night until 7:30 this morning when she woke up to tell me of her fanciful
dreams of being a "naughty" dragon who chased little Alley, (our cat)around the yard.
We had some breakfast and she is watching a bit of television and playing with her Polly Pocket
dolls in the living room while I check my mail and post a bit.
We were supposed to head over to the sprayground today, but it is raining again.(somebody cue the Supertramp).This is the second time this week that this play date has been put on hold due to weather.
I am sure Farmer Dad is smiling in his lab right now thinking of his squash drinking it all in!
Tonight we will try to head down to Princeton to hear Princess's favorite musical performer this side of Bon Jovi
sing, mr ray.
Rain or no rain, mr ray rocks!
Hopefully I will get more organized and be able to post about the curriculum we'll be using for Princess's Kindergarten year starting in September very soon.
