After my birthday breakfast at Cracker Barrel, we happened upon a garage sale and had to stop. They were selling games and puzzles for 50 cents each. We brought this one home, not knowing if all the pieces were there or not. Lukey wanted to get started on it right away. It took a few days but eventually it was completed with no missing pieces.
The castle is still being played with. Lego people keep appearing on the spindles.
The library is one of my favorite places to go to. Last week we found this treasure: Toys Go Out Being the Adventures of a Knowledgeable Stingray, a Toughy Little Buffalo, and Someone Called Plastic. I thought Luke would enjoy this book because of his new love for Stingrays. I read this aloud to the boys. They both thoroughly enjoyed the story about a girl's toys and stuffed animals and the adventures they have. Lukey asked me to re-read one chapter because he found it so entertaining. The chapter we re-read was titled: The Terrifying Bigness of the Washing Machine.
After we had finished the book the boys and I wrote a letter to the author telling how much we liked the book and the boys listed their favorite parts of the story. I hope the boys get a reply!
3. At Home
We were so excited to finally have a cool night here in Southeast Texas that they boys and I made plans at dinner to enjoy the evening. We decided to go out and make a fire. Luke was worried it would be too dark, so we decided to hang some Christmas lights for extra lights. I don't know what the boys enjoyed more, the fire or the lights.
