This little bird kept on chirping close to us. I tracked him down for a photo op. What kind is he? He reminds of a sandpiper the way he runs on the ground, but I don't think so...
I stocked up J4's art box with double sided Crayola markers and these color sticks by Crayola that are a lot like the one that comes at the end of the Prismacolor box and he loves that thing.
A new play dough set- it has sand textured play dough in it which we both believe is nasty. I particularly like making the sea anemone.
A new tool set- pretty cool. He can correctly identify a phillips and flat head screwdriver, alan wrenches, ball drives, and he can use them. He loves it. I found it at Target in their "upscale" toy aisle. You know the one I'm talking about.
Today's party was a nature party. J4 requested a "funny tree" cake just like last year. His cake had a pine tree on it- I made another ice cream cake which turned out so nicely! These are the treat bags- a few small cans of play dough and a little nature journal and a tootsie pop.
J4 loves trees. He correctly identified a cottonwood at the park the other day. This is another of his gifts.
