This Week’s Lunches and Snacks

Anthony spent the night at his big sisters’ apartment Sunday night so he helped pack his own lunch and snack for Monday while he was there.

Anthony bought his lunch in the cafeteria on Thursday (he loves their pizza) so no lunch from home needed for him that day.

Zeke bought his lunch in the cafeteria on Friday (he picked chicken tenders). Mayci and Nicky so far have declined the offer of buying lunch once a week. They like their lunches from home better than cafeteria food.

Perfect Blocks

The kids have really gotten into playing with the Perfect Blocks again. These blocks are all the same size and shape. The only difference is their colors.

What can be built with them is only limited by the imagination. They play with them now pretty much every day. Definitely the favorite communal toy right now.

Hanging Around, aka Oh, Dear, We Are in Trouble

The other day we discovered the twins can climb over our old fence gate. Luckily that one is going to be removed once the new fence is completed, but for now if they climb over they can escape from the yard completely. It’s actually quite impressive watching them climb over. Noah’s shorts got caught on the top of the gate and he was just so happy hanging up there until we got him down. Needless to say those two are being watched very closely when they are in the backyard now.

I Must Work for a Daycare

The other day as we left SamsClub an older woman looked at my overflowing cart and said I must work for a daycare. I told her no, I just have a lot of kids. She seemed very confused by what I was saying and walked away mumbling about how I was wrong, it must be for a daycare. Wonder what she would’ve thought if it was a monthly shopping trip with three carts and six kids with us!
