Relaxing Hobbies

I won above puzzle at the library during summer reading.  It's a very nice puzzle and I'd put the specs in right here if I knew them.  Not because I care but because I would like to think there are standard puzzle specs.  Not just the amount of pieces but the cardboard thickness and the photo printing technique.  Anyway, the best thing about doing puzzles at home with pets and kids ruckusing about is getting the chance to yell "STOP running through my puzzle/throwing puzzle pieces/chewing on puzzle pieces/attaching My Little Pony puzzle pieces to this puzzle BECAUSE I'M RELAXING WITH A PUZZLE NOW!"  It's best to say this in your angriest of voices.  The good thing about this is I have one child trained to yell these things for me.  Eventually all three will be trained and I can be the one messing up the puzzles.

Scary Hikes

 With the boys in school I decided to take Daisy on a wee hike.  She said it was scary AND there was something in her sock that was bothering her AND she didn't want to hold my hand because last time she did that something fell into her sock that was quite a bother
We managed.  The hike was 1.1 miles but it took us over an hour and I was started to think we were on a never ending trail.  Turns out scared 3 year olds with foot discomforts just walk really slow.
We shall see how enthusiastic she is about a hike next week.

School Begins!

First Day!
Nels is in Kinder (Age 5)
Guy is in 3rd Grade (Age 8)
 The first week of school has come to an end.  I've already had close calls with being late.  But I think I'd rate the week a success.  Everyone seems happy about going to school except Daisy who is very upset about being excluded.  She has some hope with starting at Dance School next week.  She practices daily.

Space Kids

Space Exhibit @ OMSI

Daisy puts her astronaut baby in the Kitchen of the ISS.  Her baby is looking for a hot sauce packet to eat.

 Kids are ready.  Daisy said she wants to go to Mars.  I'm not going to sign her up yet because I don't think she understands the time commitment.
