Our friend Chooj's New Years' Day birthday party
Riley took some of his Christmas money to buy a second-hand airsoft gun from a friend.
Highlights Magazine's Which Way USA: Florida puzzle/activity book and map. We'll be there for real in a couple of weeks!!!
Maya listening to music & working on a picture in the kitchen. In the background: Riley's Eiffel Tower model and work-in-progress K'Next roller coaster.
Climb-a-mountain-do-a-flip. I used to do this with Maya a lot when she was younger and overwhelmed -- she would hold my hands, walk up my legs, then flip over backwards. She loved it, and the hanging by her arms and being upside down seemed to help her re-center. I forget sometimes how much it helped. Here, I was getting really frustrated, but then remembered with Seth just before we both melted down!
More Huggermugger (and yes, that's how Maya prefers to hold a pen when she writes)
