We relaxed this morning and did some watercolors. Julia was working on her flowers, and I was trying to do some frogs. When Em woke up the kids spent the morning in imaginative play.
Emily had her drama class today, and they acted out the entire story of Rumplestilskin. It was a riot! Unfortunately, I forgot to bring the camera, but I'll be sure to bring it for the next story--Roxaboxen. Emily got to be the queen again for a portion of the story. She just *loves* having an audience! She chose the spot closest to the audience during the wedding dance so everyone could see her. She's really in her element!
When we got back home, the kids played outside until their father got home. They were playing with puppy, but mostly they were playing with their new toys under the deck. They really love that space! We're thinking about building a climber down by the pond, but I'm not sure that they'll be any happier with that than they already are with the bottom deck. But, we're getting the climber from our neighbors, and we're going to attach it to a tree to build a treehouse. I think that'll be pretty cool, and it'll be lots of fun to build.
