Life is made up of many pieces, like a puzzle. Here I attempt to put them all together.

Physical Education

I found this interesting vehicle today that Austin made and couldn't resist snapping a picture of it.

Preschool Fun
We had a lot of fun today. We played with puzzles.

We played outside.

This is Michael's favorite place to sit and watch the traffic.

We read three stories.

And sang lots of songs. Our new songs for this week are "Letter E Song", "Do You Know the Eggplant Man?" and "A Great Big Elephant" and can be found here. Michael also colored a template of the letter Ee.

When Doug came home from work this evening he hauled trash to the landfill. Amanda went with him and then when they got home she helped him wax his truck. While I suspect it was partly to get out of cleaning her room (which she still hasn't finished and I haven't forgotten). But it was good time together for them so I let it go.

All in all, it's been another good day at Rose's House.
