2.18.13 our last weekend in GA (this trip anyway)

We took the boys to Savanna yesterday; Daddy had a day off (giving up a 3 day weekend for our last weekend in Georgia) and had a low key day of bouncy place, and walking the river front.  We ended the day with a sunset walk the the Light House.

Bedtime talk tonight

Putting the boys to bed, a hour later than normal, all of us stretched out in bed:

Mom: “gee I am tired it was a long day”
5 yo: “I am not tired” [whiney voices, eyes hardly open]

7 yo” I am.  When you get older you get more tired, I am not as playful as I used to be”

5 yo “it is hard being a 5 yo little guy.   5 is so complicated”

The Boys Got to go fly

Big flew commercially twice when he was a lap child, but nothing since that.  Little Brother had never been up.  They few with http://sutair.com/home and Mitch is a great guy.  There were only 4 seats so Daddy went with the boys and Momma stayed on the ground.  We will surely try to fly with Mitch again if / when we come back to the coast, it was a great flight and he was a great guy to work with.

Wonderful Sunday

Our children are early risers, so both boys were awake before 6 on Sunday, and that is pretty standard.  We cuddled in bad (momma and daddy attempting to doze a little more) then decided we had tons of time before church so we’d run out and adventure a little; we were out of the house well before 7.    We went to St Simons Pier.  We tossed out the crab pot and watched the sunrise.  We had the most extraordinary experience of getting to watch a group of dolphins swimming and jumping.  The beautiful animals were between the T of the fishing pier and the beach, so we were really close to them.  One “set” of dolphins may have been a momma and baby since they swam and jumped together the whole time.  We went on a tour boat to watch for dolphins but this was much better; we saw them all the way out of the water at some points.

We played on the playground and then when we were leaving, and went to pull in our crab pot for the final time, we had a crab!!  He was too small to keep, so we watched him for a few minutes then happily returned him to the sea.

…and made it home in plenty  of time to shower up and make it to church

Phonics 2.8.13

Big Brother has been rocking his phonics recently.  We finished Explore the Code 3, then went back and finished Explore the Code 2 ½  which we had done half of before we moved on to book 3.  We are currently working on book 3 ½  (reviewed silent e today).

Some of his recent reading:

  • Gramp is plump and fun.
  • Floss flings her blond wig at Slim.
  • Pol plans to do a stunt for the class.
  • Frank is stung and yells for help.
  • Can you swing a golf club at a plant?
  • Are you fond of crisp crust?
  • The goat will fly to the lake.
  • The flakes of snow float by.
  • Jean sneaks into the show and tell.
  • The mean brush dips Joan in the paint.
  • The toad sings on the train.

Some current books the boys love

As everyone knows I love books.  I love books for me, I love books for gift giving, and I truly love books for the boys.  We are currently in temp housing, and I am longing for the day we get to get all our books back out of storage.

I thought I would do a quick post for you, sharing with you our mainstays that I brought along from our collection to hold us over.  We are hitting the local library weekly too, of course, but here are a few of our favorites we have with us.

(note this is not a full listing of books we have with us, but just the best loved ones)

I Need My Monster 

I’ll be Your Hero  

The Squire and the Scroll: A Tale of the Rewards of a Pure Heart 

Time For Sleep  this has to be one of my top “bedtime” books, I have it mostly memorized.

The Big Red Barn.  Another all time favorite (see which books got packed).  I still choose this one, often, in my choice stack at reading time.

The Tale of Custard the Dragon,  this is another one I choose quite when we are choosing read aloud selections, and the boys can recite a good part of it with me now.

Saint George and the Dragon 

Llama Llama Mad at Momma .   I love this book.  The boys like it, but it is an all-time favorite of mine in the “chant-a-long” books category; almost as good as Sheep in a Jeep.
