The last two days we have been studying the letter "S" and I was hoping that we could go outside to make Snake trails in the Sandbox- but by the time nap time was over it was raining again- so we made our own little sand boxes (with flour) in the kitchen. For quite some time both Lily and Eli were delighted- making snake trails through the flour, burying the snakes, and just scooping and raking the little boxes of flour! Yes, there was more than a little flour on the floor, but it was well worth it!
It's been a wonderful, wet, sandy day in the Cousins house.
And in case you are wondering...here are the final counts for the day:
Eli: 2 showers and 4 outfit changes!
Lily: 1 shower and 3 outfit changes!
Me: No shower and 2 outfit changes!:)
P.S. We also had a few milestones today. Lily rode her tricycle all the way up the hill on our street! Usually we have to push her all the way up the hill, but today I just gave her a few little pushes and then let go and she peddled the whole way! And not to be outdone Eli (during his two showers) learned how to turn the handle and change the water temperature- and thus ended up with a few cold showers!:)
Happy Mud Season!
