Luke's birthday was super fun at Gymboree, but now there is nothing on the fun horizon until October.
Nate, Noah, and the birthday boy having a great time in the parachute.
Lily seemed to only want to lay on the mat covered in scarves. I've tried to recreate this at home... and she wasn't into it.
Here is the bug making Daddy proud by ignoring the singing and dancing and refusing to leave the basketball hoop.
The teacher tried really hard to keep the kids engaged, but they mostly just wanting to run around. She was a little tone deaf, bless her heart, (FYI saying 'bless her heart' makes it okay to say anything mean about a person) This picture is hilarious to me, because she actually looks in pain from singing.
There was one casualty from the day of fun and cake. Rest in peace little white polo dress... you had a good run... you'll be remembered fondly in my heart.
We've played lots with the awesome bubble kit that we got as a party favor. The millions of tiny bubbles that never seem to pop even brought the little neighbor kid out of his house.
I've just realized I have very little actual work time before the craft show that Laura and I are doing in October. So... I've been extra busy making things. Of course, knowing me, I've been sidetracked so many times that very little is actually completed. Then, on the phone last night, Laura and I had a fabulous idea for something new.... so now I'm all over that!
I did finish this book that I wrote and illustrated for Luke and Lily for Christmas. I made Luke that farm book last year... so we'll see how many years I can keep the tradition alive.
Here are two pages from 'The Little Texan's Book of Colors'...
I'm going to get 10 printed to sell at the craft show... hopefully. If not... your kid may get this for Christmas too! (sorry Minnesotans)
