We went on an extra-long bike ride to Southshore Center today.
Peanut did a great job following the road, pedaling up the Bay Farm Island bridge, and controlling his speed on the way down.
We also got him a haircut. It was so cold outside while we were waiting that he had to wear Dada’s hoodie.
The kids discovered that the ferry parking lot was repaved and has a nice downhill slope that makes skating and scootering extra fun!
It’s cool how the kids pair off throughout the day. Today, Peanut took a nap with Leela.
Later in the day, he took a walk with Thomas.
Janie went to a skate shop with Dada yesterday and picked out a real skateboard.
Mama took her to Target today to get her a new helmet too. She has outgrown her “watermelon helmet” that she got when she was two years old. 🙂
Peanut received his new yellow-black belt today. Way to go!
He’s like our very own Little Bruce Lee.
We went back to El Dorado Park this morning for their Nature Center Trail. It started out great with lots of enthusiasm and curiosity.
Then slowly the boy started to get tired and hungry and it was all downhill from there.
There was a lot of cajoling and negotiating for the latter half of the walk. Peanut was so unhappy and said he “couldn’t walk anymore”. *sigh*
He fell asleep just minutes after getting back in the car so maybe he really was tired. We’re gonna have to build up his walking muscles and bring a snack next time.
Peanut has been learning about broad leaves and coniferous leaves in science. Today, one of his assignments was to go on a scavenger hunt.
We found all the things on the list and brought home a broad leaf!
This morning, we had Kung Fu and then we went back in the afternoon for Peanut’s belt test!
Nice work, Peanut!! You did it!
We took a walk today and went past Peanut’s old school.
Janie received her new green-black belt today. Yay!
