We might’ve had the worst winter on record, but I have seen more California weather since May than I remember in my adult life.

Thank you polar vortex!

The plus side of an OCD child… He sees all the stuffed animals in the hallway and takes it upon himself to reorganize them and find each and ever one a home.

I told him we had too many stuffed animals and he immediately jumped into the pile to save them.

Gonna write a post on the actual “science” of our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle science day, but had to share some pictures of these kick butt little ninjas first.

Put them in a costume, give them some weapons, and they really get into it.

Guess what tomorrow’s Science Friday is about… Hint: it is kid requested and may have nothing to do with science.

Drawing with Charlie, as Simon plays soccer. One of the last warm evenings in the season. This is what I need after a busy day!!

This kid!!

I was looking at old flash cards I stumbled upon this morning. Charlie goes… Oh “Buh - Uh - Gah … Buuug. That’s BUG!!”

And the same for “dog” and “car” and a bunch of others. Some words he has seen and others new.

When the hell did you learn to sound words out? It’s like he woke up today and just decided he could read. Craziness.

I’m just going to not question it and erase my Charlie guilt for the rest of the month.

Mommy, when will the days end? I can’t wait for that. I want the days to end and have no names. We will still be alive, but the days will just be stay at home day #1 and stay at home day #2. Have they invented a time machine yet? When all the days end, then we can go back to the beginning. I can’t wait.
Simon, either describing retirement or a Doctor Who plot line…

Notes

Charlie = spacey tag along. Loves finding clues and observation, but not terribly driven to solve. Still looks damn cute in a mask (all his idea).

Notes

Simon = confident mystery solver, although sometimes distracted by anal tasks like fitting the invitation back in the envelope. Still, this is his comfort zone.
