after watching an episode of curious george where george made a boat out of random toys and such from around the house, jack really wanted to try making his own. i thought it would be fun to have the kids each make their own, any way they wanted, and see who's floated... but ellie wants to do everything just like jack these days. so there wasnt much of an experiment.
here they are, setting off on their maiden voyage!
and they float!
this afternoon my mom mentioned how long ellie's bangs were getting. i had only noticed it when she was in the pool because i am constantly sweeping them out of her eyes. well i thought just a trim would be ok. lets just say a "trim" wasnt just a "trim". i cut WAY more than i intended. and its not like she was moving around or her bangs were wet. i have no excuse. i did a terrible job. but it has made me smile every time i look at her.
i should have just lied about it and said she got to them on her own...
they'll grow back right?! they actually dont look horrific when i sweep them to the side. but the odds of her keeping them swept to the side...slim to none!
