Volcanoes and Taxes

Quick recap since we last posted. Trent turned 8 months. Mom cannot believe how old he is getting. A third top tooth is popping out.

We made our first volcano at home using vinegar and baking soda. I was a bit nervous at first. I've been reading about those things in books and I know they EXPLODE! However, I learned the home versions are just fine.

Speaking of volcanoes, Trent can do a pretty good impression of one when he spits up. That kid had an emergency bath tonight. Good one Trent - you figured out one method of delaying bedtime!

Last Wednesday was really warm. The park was packed. Mom put Trent in a swing for the first time. He didn't like it as well as his jumper.

Mom came into my preschool and read about garbage trucks.

I enjoy playing pretend now - like pretending to deliver mail around the house or that our couch is a boat. I also must open all mail that comes to the house. Mom and Dad told me I cannot open anything that says "tax" on it which made me really mad. I told them I wanted some tax too and they just laughed at me. They tried to get me to say that on video but I didn't give them the pleasure. I made them make me some pretend tax mail for me.

Trent is officially an "older" infant at 8 months.

Alden's first volcano experiment.

Not so amused Trent swings at the park for the first time.

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.


Tinker Toys

Big things this week! Trent moved from his toddler bed to a twin bed.

I went to a tinkering day camp and made a wood reindeer. I didn't want to leave when Mom and Dad came to pick me up. We even had a fire. It was fun to toss pine branches on it. It made a cool crackling sound.

Today is my last day of school before break. Yesterday we had our party. Mrs. N went all out! We have stockings, multiple Christmas trees, lights, and she turned our desks into cars on the Polar Express. Mrs. N even works as a part-time elf when she's not teaching. I love hearing her elf stories.


Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!
