... I would still call it family time. Everyone is related except me, and they are all pretty used to me. Yesterday, the rain let up for a while, and some of us took the girls to the playground.
David gave Mia a ride on the swings. She's plenty big enough to pump herself, but it's always more fun with Daddy.
Anja wanted to show off walking the pipe railing. She actually made it across four sections before losing her balance.
Today it rained all day, but we walked to church anyway. The girls wore their new ponchos (yes, I got the green one done too). They like them. I am happy, and now I'm working on the next project. I'll save that for a future post.
We played a lot of games in the afternoon. The girls can hold their own in a lot of games now, but teamed up with an adult for Apples to Apples. We also called a game called Telephone Pictionary that was a lot more fun, in my opinion, of course. It needs a good sized group, which we definitely had. Each person writes a phrase of something that can be illustrated. The next person has to draw a picture of it. Then the paper is folded so the words don't show, and it's passed to the next person who writes words of what the picture shows. This continues all the way around the table. They they are opened up and read/shown to see how it changed. There were some good laughs over that one. For example "a cat in a teacup" ended up as a "coyote on a magic carpet." It's a great game because everyone gets to do something all the time.
Tomorrow... Flower Show!
