Play-Doh, that is... they decided it would be too hot to go outside today and asked me to get the Play-Doh down around 9:45. I had to talk them into cleaning it up at 11:30. The girls had a great time, and the boys enjoyed going back and forth. Having the playroom to themselves to run the cars around was more appealing to them than squishing spaghetti and building bugs.

It's the kind of day that I think- oh. I haven't sent home an art project in about a week. I should make them do art. But this is art, and it kept them happy and busy for almost TWO hours, and we talked about all kinds of things while they worked. It's just my hangup to think we didn't really do anything if there's not a finished project for parents to see. :)

I have one child who cannot have her picture taken with her eyes open and another who refuses to smile in pictures. :-)

You have product...right here in pictures! And, I can't tell you how many times Heidi told me "Process. Not Product." Because learning at their age really is about the process and the product is simply to appease parents. You do a great job!

I think it has more to do with my camera skills. I've seen really great pictures of your kids- I just don't seem to be able to take many. :)

And now we're playing Cootie, and Ariel is hooked. Maybe I'll get it for her birthday. Although I hate to subject you to it over and over, she's having a great time.

It's so cute! I love what they imagine when you give them Play-Doh.
