Colin was very excited his week to have a new friend over to the house to play.
Laura had been invited to the roller rink tomorrow with some new school friends. It was a good day to get in a bit of practice, so off we went to the local playground. Laura and Cliff on skates, Colin on his bike, and Sarah walking the dog.
It’s been an adjustment going back to school. Colin had a friend coming over to play this afternoon and this is how he chose to wait for her. Not sure how he’ll make it through full days next week after only half-days this week.
Colin made a tasty treat for a snack today – it’s coral made of popcorn! The popcorn is held together with marshmallows, like Rice Krispie squares, and both kids are enjoying it. He also helped make pumpkin-soy muffins. It was a busy afternoon in the kitchen!
I was unable to upload this yesterday – Laura took a sewing class and made herself a new pillowcase! She has done lots of projects with my help; this was her first project done completely independently. She is rightfully very proud!
We decided to take advantage of the cool weather and check out the playground at the local elementary school.
We spent a cooler (only 35C) Saturday at the Fortworth Stockyards.
They have a daily cattle drive,
Cowboys doing lasso tricks,
People in historical dress,
A human sized maze (with a challenge which we completed in 35min),
