Snowflakes are falling around here and the winter Olympics will be here soon. My husband is a retired ski coach and can't wait for the events. In the meantime Emma and I have our own Olympic events. Every morning we start our day with the dishwasher derby. I open the dishwasher and try to unload it faster than she can reload it with various toys and household items. Then we head to the laundry room for the washer/dryer relay. I hand her the wet clothes and she puts each one carefully into the dryer. Of course the light switch on the dryer door must be flicked each time to announce the arrival of a new garment. Then it's time for rock climbing. She crawls upstairs as many times as her grandfather has the patience to carry her back down and let her climb again. My role in this activity is to divert her attention when the event is over so Grandpa can lock the gate at the bottom. A handful of goldfish works every time! Here is Emma watching some real goldfish this week at Pet Smart........perhaps that is giving her some inspiration for summer Olympic events!
Linda Suarez loves snowflakes - and so do I - and put them in her sweet sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches. (and so did I!)
