Finishing off the week

Well hello Friday!   

This is us back in bed for a third time this morning reading The Enchanted Wood – which Z & N love more than any of the other read alouds we’ve done this year. Go Enid Bylton. 

Wednesday was music class and driving day and it apparently wiped me out for the rest of the week. I think Daylight Saving may have had a part to play. It’s such a long day we just embrace it and go pick up Alex in pjs and bring our dinner along. 

We’ve been out in the garden a lot. Hopefully planting next week after this weekends snow (yeah March is not spring) and until then we’ll keep painting and reading The Enchanted Wood. 



Beating winter narcolepsy 

I’ve finally stopped disco napping after putting the pingus to bed. It only took several weeks of day light saving time and it getting lighter in the evening for me to grow out of my winter narcolepsy. Because of this I can’t be too hard on the pingus taking longer to fall asleep. 

The weather is still meh. 

Still wearing two pairs of pants but have packed my snow boots away. Over the weekend we got out for our first Von Trapp family bike outing at a local nature park. 



It was cold but we had a good cycle. Looking forward to being able to picnic (who am I?) and not be chasing warm patches in the sun. 

The last few days it’s all been about building and painting. Shocker! 

After a break of a few weeks Zoey asked me to help build a roller coaster. She told me we’d need tape. She was right. 



We’ve done big paints for the last two mornings. It started with some color mixing, and then moved on to painting their engines. A few weeks ago they turned boxes into engines with cotton balls for steam and circles for wheels. All their own ideas. They finished them as much as they wanted and I left them in an accessible spot in case they wanted to play or do something more to them. 

Monday they started paining them and the engines morphed into homes for Pooh and Eeyore. Took all their will power not to stuff all their furry friends in straight away. When they were almost dry rabbits and the like started sneaking in. Bless.
