Happy Birthday 8!

We’ve been very busy celebrating 8’s birthday week. We don’t believe in one birthday day, he deserves at least a weeks worth of celebrating.

We had a small family celebration last weekend. They got to play with the cousins and he opened his presents from us. Of course there was cake.

Then, not on his birthday, the school was having a different sort of celebration and we thought that would be enough for one day, so shortly after his birthday, he got to take treats to school and have a party there.

He has been getting wonderful packages inn the mail all week and delights in ripping into them.

This weekend we had some friends over to celebrate his birthday again. They played with tractors, ate popcorn out of the tractors, spread the popcornย  across the floor to scoop up with the tractors, oh dear.

I think we may be done now. I know I need a break fromย  all the partying.

The Planets

The goblin Child called me to her room after she had been in bed for a few minutes. Once there she asked me if I remembered Roy G Biv.

I vaguely recalled that it was a memory aid for the colors of the rainbow.

“Well, I have one for the planets!” She informed me.

My Very Excellent Monkey Just Started Unicorn Noodles.

We had to sit down and see whatย  the planets were and in what order but she does seem to have it down.
