An aquarium is an endless source of interest. He often spends time sitting amd watching them swim.
We’re thinking of starting our own competitive league. Now that I think of it, we probably already have enough players in the house.
Bridges have been a topic since of serious interest in our home lately. Luckily they have the materials to build their own!
He caught two grasshoppers and immediately borrowed my phone to look up what they eat so he can make them comfy in their new home. They may not last long, but he’ll learn from the experience.
Sometimes you just need to play a game.
She’s having trouble adjusting to her new diet, but it’ll be worth it eventually.
He loves his Ricky Ricotta books.
It’s been kind of a strange week. Mrs. Hatter is back at work now that summer break has ended, and it’s been raining almost every day. As a result we’ve been homebound most of the week, though naturally that hasn’t stopped the kids from learning. Here’s a glimpse at some of what we did.
A said he wasn’t going to go easy on his Papa, and he didn’t. He also didn’t win, but it was a very good game. His chess skills are improving rapidly.
Our first attempt at a backpacking trip didn’t go to well, but N had fun and is excited for our next attempt.
They’ve begun playing their first Legend of Zelda game and love it.
My kids really like the Cars movies, so I took them to Cars 3 today. I actually liked it more than the previous two (though that isn’t saying much) and the kids absolutely loved it.
T and Mrs. Hatter spent the morning at the farm and had a whole lot of fun. T loved the birds and the ponies and the stairs and the trees. Basically everything about the place filled her with wonder and excitement.
The kids really enjoyed visiting the Art Museum today, especially this particularly colorful exhibit.
These two spent the better part of an hour plaing with old micro machines. They really love trains right now.

They enjoy video games. Particularly LEGO Video games and all the problem solving and action they involve.
They love the Star Wars exhibit at the art museum. Sadly, it’s about to end, so this was our last trip to see it.
He’s getting pretty good, and really enjoys his Ricky Ricotta books.
This is how I spent my morning at the coffee shop.
The Viking exhibit at DMNS is pretty cool. H particularly liked learning about Viking fashions – dyed clothing, jewelry and the like. The boys were more important interested in boats, armor and weaponry.
It’s always fun to find a simplified version of one of our favorite board games to share with the kids.
They don’t seem to particularly care who reads to them, as long as they get to spend some time in a fun book.
