Monday morning

We have been enjoying weekly outdoor kids concerts at the Grove and or Americana shopping centers. Our two favorite groups are Jambo ( and the Hollow Trees.
Speaking of trees. Our morning activities consisted of a quick overview of a set of laminated icons I'm borrowing from Father Stephen, swinging and tree climbing in the front yard, building castles with mega blocks, sand play and water play in the backyard.

Claire surprised us by turnning on her light and looking at a big stack of books instead of coming directly into our room at 6:15. This was after wetting the bed at 5:30 and then going back to sleep after I took the wet things off her bed.

I've been working on teaching Emily patience and taught her the have patience song last week. Today while I was inside taking care of something she was standing at the back door singing "Have patience, have patience." So sweet. (She has been doing a lot of fussing if she can't have what she wants immediately.)

Claire has been sharing toys with Emily on here own initiative lately. Claire still takes things from her just to hear Emily scream, but I am thrilled to see that she is also learning to be kind.

Dear Ones, We love hearing about all of your activities! Concerts, Icons, and playing in your own yard are all special. I remember Claire waking up in the wee hours wanting to read and we talked about some day she'd be doing it on her own. I guess that day has come--sooner than we thought. I like the Patience song too Emily. I'm glad you are learning it so young. You are so blessed to have a sister to share with, Claire. We loved the lovely Princess photos on Flikr too and Claire on the stationary bike. Love, Hugs, & Prayers to all, Nanna
