Wanting to be included.

After a summer break brought on by a cracked arm, Ains is back in gymnastics.

This means that Gray and I are back behind the fence watching. Watching for five minutes until he breaks into squealing because he wants to be in there too and I have to haul him off to a different part of the gym.

This time, though, things were unexpectedly different. This time Gray decided to try to do the movements outside the fence.

Wish I'd thought of encouraging him to do that.

It kept him busy and happy.

For all of 15 minutes.

Then they moved to the trampoline and he couldn't follow. Back to exploring the rest of the gym far away from her class, but it was a glorious 15 minutes.

Blogging away.

or Away Blogging.

I have a guest post up at The Mahogany Way! Mahogany Way is my friend Darcel's blog and well worth checking out!

Restaurant fun.

Silly girl.

Silly girl with a missing tooth.

Silly boy trying to ignore even sillier sisters.

(This is the playmat I made almost a year ago. It is well loved and used so often and shows no wear and tear yet. He still runs over the sheep, but he uses that motorcycle track much more than I thought he would.)

Blast from the Past

Searching through my old posts today for one a friend was looking for and I came across this one.

And that's the main reason why I blog. I'd forgotten about that day. It makes me smile how very similar our days still are two years later.

Oh, and this one - a freckle-less Ainsley!

Ainsley being a hero.

I found the post my friend was looking for - a comparison of the sizes of the planets, but the link isn't working. I googled for it, but all links lead back to the Techdo page which is defunct. Major bummer.

I did find the World Sunlight Map page again. Just as cool this time around.

"I know, I know, I KNOW!!!"

Hannah says that so often after hearing my answer to a question she asks.

Today I was already having a hard day, so when she said that I said "You know, it makes it really hard for me to want to answer questions if you already know everything."

"I don't know everything," she said. "Like, I don't know what type of unicorn I'm going to see in the future, just that I'm going to see one. If you have any insight into that, I'd be grateful."
