Recent activities

Just a few videos to pass the time away.

Here we have Lulu playing speed stacks. If you haven't heard, speed stacks is all the rage for this age group. She says that it is her favorite sport. There are rules that dictate exactly how to stack the cups. Anyways, you can see it here for yourself. She is playing with mini cups in the first video and standard cups in the second video. This gets really frustrating fun when Bro tries to play too interrupt her. (wink, wink)

This last clip is Bro playing in the sand over Valentine's Day weekend. Soon, I will have video of him walking!!!!!

p.s. As of the writing of this post, Bro is home sick with a 102 degree temperature. Yuck! The really disappointing news is that Lulu had her dance competition tonight and I am here with Bro (DH is working) instead of at her competition. It breaks my heart to not be there for her. I am sure that I am missing her more than she is missing me though. I would have loved to have seen her perform. :-(

p.p.s. A few days ago, we discovered that Bro really likes peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!!!! So far, he doesn't seem to have a peanut allergy.

That's great! Last year our interim PE teacher did cup stacking with the kids. I thought it would be boring, but they loved it! They REALLY concentrated at it, it was neat. They even did cup stacking relay races, which she had me participate in too....I don't think she realized I was 6 months pregnant, lol.

He is just too cute playing in the sand. I let Brooklyn touch the sand in the children's area of our Natural History Museum...then she spit up in and this little boy was VERY offended. I will have to get her a sandbox this summer. Can't wait to see him walking!!!

*Note to self, find out where I can get these cups for my classroom. Will any cups do?

Hope Brody feels better soon! What a bummer!

I know that you can get them online. Just type in speed stack cups and there is a whole website with them. You could probably get them cheap off of e-bay. I don't know if stores sell them or not. I'll ask Lulu. She'll know.

They are special cups. They stack so well because they have holes in the bottom so that the air comes out of them easily, when they are being stacked. Plus, I think that they come is a standard size which fits kid hands well.

Although, probably any set of same-size cups with holes in the bottom (three, I think) would work, now that I think about it. I am sure that you can get the stacking directions off of the web too.

She's probably going to love her sand box. This was the first time that Bro has touched sand. I was waiting for him to try to eat it, which I am sure is a typical baby reaction.
