We ordered caterpillars so we could watch them go through their life cycle. Zane was checking out our new chrysalises. They transformed into their chrysalises while we were visiting my mom, so we had to drive back with them. Only one fell of the lid on the way home, luckily. Zane has asked about a million questions about them and I love having them around to entertain us and teach us.
We love, love, love the pool. We stayed at the pool for 3 hours the other day with our good buddies. This is Zane, Abhi, Emmy, and Ella (from oldest to youngest).
Emmy has been dancing all the time lately. If she accomplishes something she's proud of, if she hears any kind of music, or randomly, she breaks out in dance. I wish I would have video taped this one, but caught a few pictures. I also like that she's wearing Zane's old Elmo shirt with random shorts.
The other night, we walked over to McDonalds to get some ice cream after dinner. It was such good family time.
My sweet, grown up 4 year old is now going to preschool 3 days a week. He loves school and was excited to start a new year.
Love this face
I love how Zane comes up with so many fun ideas for our play times. Tonight he wanted to make a car out of Emmy's diaper box. We cut out windows, added headlights, straws for windshield wipers, a steering wheel, etc. All his ideas.
The best idea, I thought, was adding a license plate and bumper sticker. Zack and I both have Flatirons stickers on our cars, so he thought of adding one to our box car. He wrote "Fast Car" on the license plate himself. He and Emmy took turns pretending that one of them was driving to church and the other one was a police officer giving tickets for driving too fast. LOL.
