Egg Carton Creativity

We have a stack of egg cartons with our toys.  We finish off a dozen eggs and the carton goes on the stack.  A carton rips, it goes to recycling or the burn pile.  Friends need cartons for eggs, we pass sone along.  Such is the circle of life of the egg cartons in our house.

The stash with the toys has been part of many hours of imaginary play for GGirl.  They are great for constructing cities and towers.  They make great trains and cars. The uses are only limited by the imagination of a 4-year-old.

This morning after I put MMan down for a nap, I was invited to campfire-complete with logs to sit on and imaginary sticks with marshmallows!

Our Last Day of Summer

It is September 4th and our last day of summer.   The sun is shining, there's a gentle breeze and it's just beautiful out.  We caught some outsidetime after MMan's nap. Tomatoes and sunflowers were ready for the picking.  MMan was loving his snack.  He even sat his tomato in the playhouse window so he could open the door and go in.  Then picked it up and startrs sucking on it again.

Tomorrow summer ends and GGirl starts afternoon Pre-K.  She is so excited and so ready that I can't help be excited for her and for the new routine that is coming my way.
