She missed him while he was away for work, but luckily we had kindergarten for distraction. Each morning begins with a sign-in sheet at the door: “Good morning, Girls and Boys…” Their letter of the week was Thea’s favorite: The letter T! On Wednesday, they signed in by drawing something that begins with the letter T next to their names. There was a Tadpole and a Turtle by the time we arrived, and Thea signed in by drawing a Toilet.
She sang their ‘good morning’ songs.
Finn drew a picture and tried to hang it on the wall.
Later, we waited for the rain to subside before Thea’s soccer game.
She’s beginning to focus a little more and remember the direction of her team’s goal.
On Friday evening, we went for a walk. Their stride is similar but I couldn’t capture their stepping syncopation.
On our rainy Saturday, she ran on the treadmill with Daniel Tiger as motivation
While Finn used my computer mouse to make phone calls.
Finn got a haircut, and a blue tongue from his dum-dum lollipop.
We visited the bakery to order Thea’s birthday cake and eat some cookies.
She sang us a sad mermaid song.
And they took great delight in surprising me as I wondered aloud about where they could possibly be.
On Labor Day, we attended the Harrisburg Region Central Labor Council’s Annual Labor Day Breakfast, and Thea and Finn met a clown and a caricature artist.
In the afternoon, we passed some time while waiting for a visit from Finn’s pal Livvie and her family.
They washed my car.
And the blue car too.
Finn tired of my “when she gets here” answers to his questions on when Livvie would arrive.
And then there was mac ‘n cheese.
And a dance party on the dance floor framed by pillows.
For a second, I thought there may be some pop & lock neck moves.
