Well, this week has been filled with vomiting, itching, crying and a smattering of fun... Felice, Henry and Max all came down with some sort of unpleasant virus, Max is still suffering while Felice and Henry have recovered. We took Max to the doctor today about his seemingly itchy rash and as we predicted the doctor suggested time, benadryl and calamine... Otherwise the kids are fine...
This will be Henry's future, making jewelry (if he majors in liberal arts as Felice and I did...). Every child needs a small anvil and hammer.
Max still has not learned that throwing sand, in this case wet sand, is not a good idea.
Henry drives a load of grass clippings.
We just keep Henry working, his wheelbarrow filled.
Max hanging out and having a snack.
Still not clear about the proper use of a toy telephone, but getting closer.
On Saturday, after I had woken at an extremely early hour to console Max, Henry suggested we got to Goodwill. I love going to thrift stores so we went. I proved that I am not insane by not buying the 4' high scale model trebuchet. I probably should have bought it, it haunts me now. Instead we bought a Thomas domino game, some chinese jigsaw puzzles (words in english and chinese) and a Microsoft EasyBall. Henry loves computer peripherals, last night he had two mice, the Easyball and a webcam plugged into his PC. Henry loves his jigsaw puzzles as well, although he often asks for help, just as often he does them alone.
Felice sold one of her hanging bottles on Etsy and is feeling validated.
I picked up a old copy of Literary Digest at the local thrift store, quite an interesting story about the magazine...
