Bluebonnets in bloom

The recent rains have been helpful for allowing Texas bluebonnets to come into full bloom. We took advantage of the beautiful weather yesterday to trek a patch about 20 minutes from home.

You can probably notice the difference over the past few months photos --they're 15 months old now. Grace loves saying "thhhocks" when we point to her socks and "dog" when we point to Truman. Dylan loves making noises, but so far his "adult" vocabulary focuses on saying "dada!".

Dylan cam

If you're wondering what it's like to live a minute in the life of a little dynamo, here's a brief snapshot on the Dylan-cam.

Playing house

Dylan and Grace seemed to enjoy their first foray into playing "house". As you can see below, Dylan was particularly enthused about opening and closing the window shutters (fortunately made out of plastic). This video was taken in the main hallway of the Montessorri school that they will be attending starting in April. In order to get them acclimated to the environment, we have been taking them there on Saturday mornings. From 10am to noon each Saturday, the school has "open playtime" in the main hallway between the classrooms , as well as the outdoor playground.

Needless to say, will be a significant adjustment for all of us when the kids start going to school. Hopefully they will enjoy the classroom activities and interaction with other kids as much as they enjoy the hallway toys. Stay tuned!
