Z had a big weekend in the sense of two major changes. He started Saturday French classes and he moved up in his Sunday school class at church. He started both with a few tears but as usual we had to pry him away from his new teachers for both classes.

One of the many joys of living in Washington DC is the free, high quality cultural events. We've attended National Symphony Orchestra in Your Neighborhood every year, and this year it was in our immediate neighborhood. I went to the opening night concert. While we missed the family concert this year due to car shopping, Z attended a mini-concert at the local library with his class.

We attended an adorable performance of Amahl and the Night Visitors (which I'd never seen before, oddly) at a local church. The performers' bios showed that they were serious students (all the young men were engineering majors) as well as fine actors and singers.

Our admin brought in a huge candy bar, which was quickly consumed.

I've been on a felting rampage. I made a travel felt board out of an inexpensive picture frame and three sets of felt scenes - ocean creatures, cars, and a pizza.

MoBob helped me with the car wash.

One of the plants unexpectedly flowered.

Wow, so creative! I hope I will come up with fun activities like this when Miri is older. Love that car wash!

There's quite a lot you can do with babies too! Z did a lot of "art" work. He was a big fan of sensory bottles too. Those are easy to make. Check out Hellobee if you have time!
