I took the kids to the dollar store and Freckle Foot picked out these blue glass "rock" that most people up in fish tanks for floral arrangements. She also picked out the small pink lunch box to store her rocks in. This kid cracks me up. We go to the dollar store where there is a whole aisle of toys and she picks out these rocks and a container.

magnets came in the mail. I was probably more excited than Freckle Foot. I printed the fish magnet page from my new favorite blog Confessions of a homeschooler. This site has some wonderful resources that are free. Go check out the website there is always something new. Freckle Foot liked filling in the dots. Then decided to make the magnets stick together. She was trying to figure out why some of the magnets repelled each other and others would stick together. I will keep that in mind for another activity.
Freckle Foot's first hot chocolate. Both the kids were sick but they were going stir crazy in the house. We took them to the park for a little while and Freckle Foot was cold when she got back. I decided it was time for some hot chocolate with marshmallows. It was a huge hit. Probably not my best idea right before dinner but boy, is Mom fun.

For weeks now Little Loaf decides to take a nap about the time Freckle Foot is getting up from hers. I have been trying to find quite things to do with her besides watch TV. We had a tea party for her entourage of animals
She thought it was really funny to make her talking Elmo eat a orange while he was telling a story. He kept opening his mouth and she just kept stuffing it in and laughing.
Little Loaf's climbing skills are advancing quickly. I turned around to find him not only up on the chair but trying to figure out how the lock works on the sliding glass doors. Of course like any good mother I grabbed the camera before I grabbed the child. Don't call Child Protective Services yet he never did fall off the chair. But for the rest of the day we did have a battle about sitting vs standing on the chairs.
