Reunited, And it Feels so Good
After Maya's little weekend vacation with Grandma and Grandpa, and our vacation with just Elliot Rose, we are all glad to be together again.
Maya is full of new stories, dance moves, and funny tricks (I can definitely tell which ones came from Grandpa!)from her big trip. If Joe or I mention that we missed her she employs her most exasperated tone to say, "You KNEW I was coming home.
During Elliot's nap today, Maya and I spent some special time outside making sand art. She told me all about the fancy party she went to Saturday night, while we used glue, sand, finger paint, and flowers to make colorful art.
It's unfortunate that even wintery projects like finger painting and collages are more fun outside... but that might be due to the easy clean up.
