To My Classics Book Club

I finished "Oliver Twist." I loved it! Now I am on to "Their Eyes Were Watching God." Thanks Jen for the books.

Octahedron

 This is the second mobile we have put up for Eliza! The verdict is out as to what she thinks of it but here is a link to Margaret's turn with it.
Kelly and I made the rattle Eliza is holding in the second photograph. We had made it for Margaret but didn't use it at all. Eliza has enjoyed it a lot. We made it to be very light and narrow she could hold it and move it around despite not having very much arm and hand strength. I am so glad I found it at the right time for her to use! Time passes so quickly.

My sister asked me if I spiked her hair up. I said "No, I try to flatten it down."

Drinking Juice

This has been such a fun activity! I told the kids that if they squeezed a cup full of orange juice they could use these straw glasses to drink it with. Margaret called them Harry Potter glasses. It was such a long straw that is took a lot of suction to drink up the juice, hence the puckering faces. But all of them had a good time doing it and I enjoyed watching.

Hang On the Walls of Your Mind

I hung up some pictures in Eliza's room and I thought this quote went really well with this photograph. I have posted it before here but thought it wouldn't hurt to post it again!
 
James Whistler :
"Hang on the walls of your mind the memory of your successes. Take counsel of your strength, not your weakness. Think of the good jobs you have done. Think of the times when you rose above your average level of performance and carried out an idea or a dream or a desire for which you had deeply longed. Hang these pictures on the walls of your mind and look at them as you travel the roadway of life."
