Today, it rained. And rained and rained and rained.
We did very little, and I was very glad that we weren’t driving. Girl packed a bag of things to bring on our ‘mountain adventure’ tomorrow, and I did laundry.
The kids played Minecraft for a while, working on both Girl’s world and Boy’s world. The little I saw of Boy’s world was pretty cool. Rooftop gardens, sugar cane and wheat fields, a cool house. The also did some drawings.
Girl made a drawing of a bad dream, in which the family was caught in a terrible thunder and lightening storm, and a giant spider tried to attack us, but Dog jumped on it’s back and bit it.
Girl has been thinking and talking, even singing, a lot about how much Dog wants to protect us. (The other day I heard her singing to Dog in the bathroom about what a good protector she is.)
Boy’s drawings these days are occupied with shapes, lines, contrasts, perspective. It’s such a contrast to Girl’s, which are full of swirls and movement.
He’s also been talking about baking again, and I found this recipe (copied from the flour bag) on the counter the other day. I expect we’ll be doing some of that next week.
Papa picked up a baguette and hummus from Harris Teeter tonight so I didn’t have to make dinner. Tomorrow we’ll get up early, throw some things together, put the car seats in the rental, and hit the road. I doubt we’ll have internet access where we’re staying, and in that case I’ll post our days when we get home.
Until then: Happy, Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
