We did Bean Art today for our Craft Day activity. It turned out well but it was SO messy!!! Oy! But the boys both had fun, so I guess it was probably worth it. I would recommend putting down some sort of rug before doing this to anyone considering it! It was such a pain to sweep up. I really need an indoor recycled plastic rug or something for this purpose.
We did some gardening as well. Everything is sprouting now! It's so much fun to see the little sprouts. I hope the next few days of potential thunderstorms doesn't destroy everything. I only have three squares covered.
I wanted to write from a few days ago that Yoav taped a piece of paper to Elie's back and wrote (for pretend -he actually wrote "107") "I love you". Yoav said it was so Elie would always know.
We're about to make Jackie's granola bar recipe for the fourth time in two weeks! It's so yum!!! I don't think I posted it yet. It's here:
We skip the sugar, use coconut oil in place of butter and add 1/4 cup ground flax seed and a tsp of almond butter to make it chewy instead of crunchy.
Elie's getting close on potty training, I think. A few days ago, he handed me the potty insert for the big potty and I put it on and sat him down and he pooped. A bit before that, he lifted his leg up to the big potty and I put him on and pooped. Today he sat down on a little potty himself and pooped. So at least w the poops, I think we're almost there. He's less likely to tell me about pee, although he does signal some w the hand signal.
