Bonus scenes from our Easter egg dyeing tonight:
We programmed Kate's birthday gift from Jalal and Amir today -- she was amazed to hear Violet call her by her name.
Kate looks at a bee trapped momentarily between the screen and the glass. Oh how she wanted to grab it!
Only one child's name can be programmed into Violet, so no matter how much Grace argued that her name was -not- Kate or that her favorite animal is a sloth and not a penguin, it didn't make a bit of difference to Violet's proclamations. We always love opportunities to show our girls that electronics (or optics, or chemistry, etc.) are cool, not imaginary magic, and this toy provided a great chance for that talk.
We are passing this spring break in a super low key way -- our highlight of the morning was a cookie picnic on the front lawn.
Grace and Suki kept marching up and down, saying "time for more flowers!" and then depositing their blossoms in my lap.
