He has also developed quite an interest in creating his own books, especially since acquiring his very own stapler. (Which really took some pleading on his part! I still vividly recall stapling my finger to a bulletin board in my third grade classroom--I was quite accident prone as a child--so it was with trepidation that I agreed to let him have his own!) But he has proven himself to be very conscientious, and has put together some of the cutest little books! One of my favorites is a Kasey the Kinderbot coloring book he made a few days ago. I just think these illustrations are so adorable!
And, here is another of Dylan's drawings that I just have to share!
We're all still a little bit obsessed with the Wiggles...seeing them in concert was just such a happy, wonderful experience! (Darren thinks it's hilarious that I have been heard saying in recent days, "Hey, kids, do you want to watch a Wiggles video?!") I can't help it...but I'm worried that I may have developed just a slight crush on Anthony (a.k.a. "The Blue Wiggle"). How pathetic is that?! :)
Oh, and on a completely unrelated topic: does anyone else remember those fabulous deeley boppers of the early 1980's? I had a pair topped with the likeness of Smurfette, and I thought they were the absolute coolest thing. Of course, I was probably no more than six or seven years old, but still. Anyway...in our excitement for the St. Patrick's Day party we're having tomorrow, the kids and I have been doing all sorts of silly little crafts over the past couple of days. Today we made our own deeley boppers utilizing--what else?--card stock (I LOVE that stuff!), glitter, chenille stems, and a couple of Caitlyn's headbands. So easy, and so much fun! Here are Dylan and Caitlyn enjoying a "picnic" lunch on the couch in my bedroom this afternoon.
