Hi Hi! Our car is not ready yet. We brought it in on a Tues. and they said it’d be ready early the next week. Found out the next Tues. it’d probably be ready Fri., which was yesterday. Then they are still waiting for a part to come in (bolts? I think) and it’ll arrive Mon. when they think the car will be done. They had to send a part of our car to Kamloops as well apparently. So, it seems we are dealing with small-town long wait car repair stuff, cause we have to wait for parts and shipping things here and there.
Life with Sarah has been fun lately...we are talking all the time. Andy says he notices that I don't have so much need to talk to him (difference between men and women, women need to talk more and he is my main adult around her to converse with) at the end of the day because I've been talking all day with Sarah. She is asking why? about everything which can be crazy. We are having fun with the sun and sugar snow (consistancy is like), making balls of snow, throwing them in buckets and splashing in puddles. We even made our first sand castle of the season and Sarah flattened 'for the campers' so they wouldn't trip on it. We are talking about the changing seasons and talk about summer some 'when the campers come.' and Sarah made a 'snowlady' today out of balls I made for her. Sarah wears Andy's sunglasses with a 'sunglasses keeper' to keep them on her head. We lost her $6 MEC ones somewhere along the way. The glare from the snow is so bright.
Went into town on a garbage/errand/work trip with the truck yesterday. That was nice to go for a drive. Library trip was too short (we were rushing) and we didn't get too many good books for Sarah. She really enjoyed "Does a pig flush" (don't remember author) and "Trucks Trucks Trucks" by Peter Sis. The later she could 'read' on her own - each page has a different truck and she memorized what they were doing "Digging", "Hauling", "Lifting." Very cool. Also, "Never Too Little to Love" was a fun one. That would be a good one for reading in the library on Valentines Day Mom A.
Sarah is wearing the binoculars we made one day with a soft fleece cord to hold them around her neck.
It's been a week since Sarah has been in underwear. It all started with this bad rash she had gotten and I didn't want to put a diaper on her for a while so it would heal. We are just doing diapers for naps and sleepy time now and the last 2 or 3 (prob. just 2) days there have been no accidents. We made a book to - our first publication, called "My Toliet Book" featuring toliets from the Sears catalogue and words about different toliets in different places, about her growing up and wearing underwear. That was fun to make. We are enjoying the old movie "Maverik" that Andy found down at camp - featuring Mel Gibson.
Sarah's been enjoying singing lately and will pick up any simple song I sing. Time to learn some good simple ones of value that will stick in her head (no more "pop goes the weasel") - I do not understand that song, anyone else?
Andy and Sarah and I planted celery seeds inside today. Andy used his soil block maker and it works great! There's a new entry on camp's blog too
