A Day in the Life

While I realize that we haven't put pictures of our adorable child on the blog in a week, it's because we've been living a very (amazing) regular life at the moment. We stay home three days a week with an 17 month old boy, and our other two days are spent doing routine things like playgroup and swim lessons. During the winter, Kyle works more weekends, which means we stick around home more too. Here are some of the fun things we've been doing while at home over the past day or two.

  Playing with a giant tube and some matchbox cars.

 Playing with a straw discovery bin. Sora is putting the straws through holes in some netting which is attached to the tennis can.

 Gluing foam shapes to the sliding glass doors (with water). This was so easy and fun - we'll be doing this more often!

Good old fashioned painting. I stayed out of the kid's ways and let them do whatever they wanted as long as they stayed at the table and didn't paint the wall. This was hard for me to do, but Sora loved painting herself (and cleanup really wasn't that bad)!

At the end of a long day, Sora gets to help make dinner (depending on the meal of course). 

 And then eat it (of course)! Loving food as much as Kyle does, it's awesome that Sora is such an amazing eater. After dinner, we took the extra nori sheets (seaweed for you non-sushi lovers) and toasted them with some salt in the oven. Sora loved them and gobbled them up!

That's about all that is going on here at Team Headquarters these days. We try to sneak in some outside time each day, but are still patiently waiting for the snow to really fall. We will be having some VIP visitors in the next few months, so most of our excitement is being reserved for them :).

The purple skirt looks great. I'm glad it worked out for you. (and Sora)

I'm getting lots of good ideas from you! Also, can you do a "how to" on rolling your own sushi? video, picture series, something to help a newbie out?
