Jade is always moving. After running, jumping, and throwing snowballs in our first snow of the year, my daughter tumbled face first into a mud puddle.
My sister and brother-in-law decided they they wanted to spend their vacation with us this past week of February. We are always delighted to have them. We always have the best fun together. We always have the best fun together. They live in the mountains of Tennessee and we go to their farm several times a year. Likewise, they come to Georgia to see us.
My son has been a dinosaur fanatic ever since he was 3 years old. This passion has spilled over into everyday life for us. What started out as a little boys interest has led to many museum visits, documentaries, puzzles, science experiments, internet searches, geography, mapping skills, and paleontology summer camps. As a family, we have all learned more about the Permian, Jurassic, Triassic, Cretaceous, and Pliocene time periods than we ever dreamed we would! Dinosaur means “Terrible Lizard” which is misleading because dinosaurs were not lizards at all. They are a separate group of reptiles. Additionally, many prehistoric animals, including pterosaurs, plesiosauria and dimetrodon are not classified as dinosaurs….yep, more than I ever thought I would know.
Play-Doh is a basic of childhood. We have all played with it, made weird looking creatures with it, even eaten it. You know you have! The texture, color and mold-ability is what brings children to it time after time. My 2 year old daughter Jade is a play-doh fanatic.
Gabriel is up playing with his LEGO’s. When he sees us he starts chatting non stop about all he is building and all of his plans for today. Papa thinks we are crazy for being up this early…and I am inclined to agree with him. Coffee is needed for sure!
