By now we are 'technically' done counting days, but education never stops.
We met some friends of ours in downtown Easley.
We loved the interaction that a 1 yr old, 3 yr. old, 5 yr. old, 9 yr. old, and a n 11 yr. old all had with each other. They all got along, played well, and shared.
|Gathering up-rooted nails and scrap metal.|
|Enjoying the stage.|
|Cooling off at the fountain.|
|Trying to wet his head.|
|Experimenting with the umbrella. |
Filling it from the fountain and dumping it on himself and others.
|Then trying the stone fountain, too.|
|Watching a train go by.|
|"What animal made these tracks?"|
|Slurping it up to spit it out.|
|Hummmm??? Why's the crossing arm broke???|
|"Well, the storm last night broke it in the strong winds, " (basically) said the cop.|
|So that's what's in that pipe!|
|Ordering a pizza lunch for us. AND buying!|
|Then off to the park down the road.|
|Pumpkin was too hot!|
(I may turn her into an unschooler yet ;-) )
|Then the windshield was water-gunned down.|
|The boys packed themselves for a 3 night & 3 day adventures with ~|
Pumpkin and his best friend and Fireball Coyote with a soccer team mate friend.
(Mom & dad had some alone anniversary time!)
|Working on some movies for the weekend, via FB chat.|
|Fireball Coyote's friend had a hedgehog! (Something he's always wanted.)|
Along with 2 dogs, 3 cats, a hamster, anoles, and more.
What a great way to learn. Live with a different family for a few days.
Let's just say that when we picked them up ~ they were tired! Happy to see us. And missed each other a bit. (One could really tell when they fought that night at bed time!) Ahhhhhhhh. Brotherly love!
