More Taiko

Cute pics Yuta took of Taiko drinking some water.

And me giving Taiko a quick bath in the kitchen sink.  I'm not sure why, but he's not so much into baths anymore.  One evening he was playing with the faucet water so I took the chance to do a quick fun bath.

This is our new dog, Gizmo.  He is a six year old Jack Russell Terrier mix.  Our friend fostered him for a week and raved about him, and I had been waiting for the right time to get a dog, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.  He fits right in, and is terrific.

Taiko Exploring

Taiko has found lots of interesting things lately - the refrigerator, a drawer full of cups, bowls and plates and most recently the stairs!  He is fast and getting more comfortable exploring further away from us.  We have to be on our toes now.

Park Day!

I am trying out a new work schedule where I work four 10 (or more) hour days, and have Fridays off.  It worked out that the first week of this schedule coincided with a park day organized by one of our homeschool friends.  We met up with friends, then Simi went home with a friend of hers, while one of Taipan's friends came home with us to play.  We all also went to Menchie's for some yummy frozen yogurt.

Taiko was also there, only in the sling, so he missed out on pictures.

Another Tea Party

Taipan & Taisim wanted to make food today.  We started out making peanut butter toast and sandwiches, and then they got out some cookbooks to make recipes, which turned into wanting to make food and drinks for a tea party.

This tea party featured Danish Do's and Jawa Jive Smoothies from the Star Wars cookbook, and a princess cake, lady bug strawberries and smoothies from the princess and tea party cookbooks.
