Other Summer Fun

Benjamin and Noah have been having other summertime fun together when they aren't busy fighting. (But we don't mention that, this is the parental mythology blog, remember.)

They've attempted "sleepovers" in each other's rooms, but those usually end up with them being separated when one (Benjamin) wants to sleep and the other (Noah) won't let him.

Benjamin has been busy with his creations, too.

Benjamin rediscovered the fun of origami at camp, so he pulled out his set of paper and instructions (courtesy of Bilingual Monkeys, a great resource for parents raising bilingual kids), and he and Noah went to town with it.

That is Charlotte's Web there on the table - that is what I'm reading to them during mealtimes lately. And Benjamin's camp counselor (whom I met when he was 2 years old... ouch) started reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe to their room at camp (in French), so I let Benjamin pick up where they left off (in English) with our copy at home. We started reading together, but he's taken off without me now!

I found some glass paint at the random stuff store, so after testing to be sure it would really peel off as easily as it claimed, we painted on the patio one afternoon.

And let's not forget Gala, who has also been enjoying the warmer weather. (A little too much, say the poor defenseless birds who build their nests in the hedge... yikes.)
