The twins are spending a few days with Steve and me while their Mom is on a business trip. We are having a busy day! Starting with giant pancakes for breakfast this morning, through creating craft projects involving a ton of tape, crepe paper, a cardboard box and trash bags, a trip on our scooters & bikes to the library and the park, we have now finished writing books to show to Mama when she gets home.
After the traumatic snake encounter, there have been many conversations about snakes, reptiles, and other scary things one might encounter in the woods. So we checked out some library books on various animals and we are studying about them. Our books are about dolphins, snakes, reptiles and rainbows. With much repetition of "don't pick up snakes or you might get poisoned" and lots of discussion about how to care for animals, it's hoped that some of the scariness about getting separated from their mom with a big snake in between might be alleviated.
We also have plans to go to the Dollar Store (the boys' favorite place to shop), swimming, and maybe a little Power Ranger watching tonight. I'm pretty sure I won't get much knitting done, because everytime I sit down, I get two little boys snuggled up on my lap. A fair trade-off.
