Kylie dances to her radio using the glass door as her mirror.
Kylie was playing with her toy propeller on Monday. It made a small cut under her right eye when it bounced back into her face.
The snake art was something Kylie painted some time ago. It was a part of a larger jungle art piece. With all the green on this page, I thought it worked well for this week.
Karen was in Tennessee this week helping Carolyn make preparations for Nana. She drove down on Sunday and was back on Saturday.
Sorry game: This week Kylie learned to bump, slide and switch her way to winning this new game.
Coach Jack named Kylie his star swimmer for the month of May. We were so tickled! I was also pleased that Kylie started to learn both the breaststroke and butterfly this week in class.
Kylie is crazy for the Scooby Doo gang these days.
Peanut butter cookies: As part of my Summer Manifesto, I wanted to make cookies for Kylie’s summer camp teachers and for the men who take care of our yard. On Thursday, Kylie helped me make her first batch of peanut butter cookies. She helped me add the ingredients to the mixer, roll out the batter balls, and make the fork marks with powered sugar. We also made sugar cookies which she decorated with colored sprinkles. After the cookies cooled, I put the cookies into cellophane bags and decorated some bag toppers with a “thank-you” from our family. It was wonderful to see the happy faces as we gave the cookies away.
Coin jar: We were having trouble keeping Kylie in her seat while sitting at the dining table for meals. She kept popping up. After reading “Alexander, Who Used To Be Rich Last Sunday” we decided to fine Kylie a coin from her bank each time she popped up. Let me tell you, there is just ONE quarter in the mason jar we put on the dining table. Kylie paid one fine for getting out of her chair. Since then, she has not popped up from her seat in over a month. I guess we are lucky in that Kylie likes her coins so very much!
If you look closely at that bottom right picture, you'll see that Kylie is petting the shell of a turtle in our backyard. Our yard is teeming with animals these days!
And that's it for another week!
