table for two...
This is what it looks like when this two year old sets table. :) I love it. And he really enjoys helping. He'll set and help clear if I give him stuff. And lately sweeping has been a big deal. He holds the dust pan, I sweep, and he dumps it into the garbage. Enjoy while it lasts right? ;)
It is so fun to watch these two interact (well most of the time!). Elijah is the only one she thinks is funny enough to laugh at. Enjoy.
Books we are liking...
Jerry Pallotta Alphabet books
Ok, so I admit I probably like them more than Elijah... but I hope he does like them and get a lot out of them someday... cause I'm going to keep collecting them. We came across one of his book's by accident. Salvation Army deal- $0.25! for the Jet Alphabet book.
On my "to-get" list:
ummm... pretty much all of them!
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Rm 12:12
A recent artistic venture... I like God's word out there for me to see all the time. Cause quite frankly, I'm not getting, nor I am taking the time to sit down and have that oh so needed quiet time with him. This little project was so good for me on Monday afternoon. We'll see where and how it ends.
And just like that it's December.
Cardboard. Oh how I like thee!
Our latest venture.
It's entertaining... we've found objects that will fit through the tube. Colored blocks. So we are attempting to be educational as well as fun here.
I've seen recently seeds that were planted earlier are now sprouting. It is encouraging to know the effort put in is paying off. And it is encouraging me to keep doing the right things now... to keep disciplining, teaching, correcting, rebuking, modeling love- patience- peace- kindness- humility- forgiveness now. (not that I'm doing an awesome job of that- those are things I'm working on... and he's giving me plenty of opportunities to do so!) To sit down and repeat colors, numbers, letters, sing the silly song again, read the book again and again and again at his request. I realized today that he almost has a book memorized. His speech is not clear, so it's hard to catch unless I'm really listening. He was reading it to his sister. It was precious...
