Right now my 3 older kids (ages 5, 3 and 2) are sitting at the table playing with pipe cleaners and Wikki Stix (kind of like wax-covered pipe cleaners that will stick together). A completely mess-free activity! However, I have to get up every 30 seconds to pick up the ones they drop that keep getting in the baby's mouth!
Today we went to the pet store. They had some great animals there. It was almost like going to the zoo! We saw parrots, a huge iguana, 2 huge tortoises, water turtles, lots of other reptiles, nursing 3-day-old gerbils, fish, puppies. It was fun (and free!).
My husband is out of town for the weekend (at a Bible Study Fellowship Retreat). So I have been relying greatly on the Lord for extra strength and patience. He has greatly provided so far. But I miss him.
My sister, her husband and 1 yo son just got back from a 4-week driving trip to Mexico. I will be posting some of her adventures here!
Is anyone watching the Olympics? We don't have cable or satellite (so that we won't be tempted to watch TV). And our antenna doesn't work very well, but I can sort of see what's going on. I hope to watch some figure skating tonight.
