Grace is pleased that she can open the wrapper from the straw and put it in her own juice box. I'm sure she could do it before now, I just never asked her to do so.
Suki and Kate puzzle over some blocks. I just love our relaxed mornings where these girls have time to play and experiment.
There were actually a couple of books, each featuring the community pancake breakfast as an important starting point to the day. It was a new one to me.
Grace dressed herself today, opting for an inside out shirt and backwards pants. She did not want any help and I didn't see any reason to interfere.
While we were at the bread store we ran into our friends Erin, Allison and Renee. They joined us on the town green and we chatted and played.
Suki was thrilled that she could pet this dog. We usually just say hello to dogs we don't know but this owner had the time to spend so that Suki could approach slowly and quietly, let the dog sniff the back of her hand, ask the owner how he liked to be petted, etc. It was a good treat for Suki and the owner and dog loved Suki.
Allison and Erin kept making up funny names (like Lucy Moosie) for Grace's animals -- she cracked up and called them all silly.
