Hello Visitors

and once again I welcome back


Oh hi there, Sigh. Saturday. Yes! always a delight!

 Yesterday was the last day of FALL BREAK for Kenz and Brody. They were both over here visiting Daba. When I got home from my Friday they had already gone home.( Daba, why do you look so tired?) It was about 6:45 and already dark. Once I kicked off my shoes and had some food, I explored the house for clues of the day. I sort of know how things were when I left. These were the evidences of discovery and play just a few. I have the feeling Daba was straightening up a few of the we won't call them messes. They are never messes! They are explorations. As we say in my Poetry class, these children are FORAGERS.

I found my doll, the one I keep in my bedroom kicking it way back. Wow, she had here legs crossed and she was reclining. The only thing missing was her pen and paper in hand.
Ah hah, the elf was here! I can just imagine Brody wearing this on his darling head, don't exactly know what he thinks about
when he has it on.

Not sure whose hand Kenz is holding. I will have to call Brody. But I must say he captured Kenzie's legs, Tall and lean Look how her eyes are looking down! Brody likes to draw and he is naturally good at it!
A wall pic from the back of the closet. I hope someone was studying the butterflies!
A collage! A poem as lovely as a tree!
The bottom shelf undone! Wonderful!

Brody made this little green finger pot when he was about three. It was not here when I left this morning.
 He must have had his six- year old fingers on it! I know he enjoys it. I usually keep it right next  to the one his dad made when
he was in preschool.

AH nice and quiet and a good weekend ahead!
Peace and love and happy foraging to all!

Brody turns Six!

Turning Six


These are scenes from the family party. The following day there was a friend party at the Jumping Castles store.   I have to say the family deal was a big hit. Ant Jean was here. We played her invented game called, Guess Ten Things about Brody. What is his favorite color? movie? food? and things of that sort. We all had to keep a list. And the winner was... Mom and Dad. A tie. Mom won the bonus question! We then played Kenzie's favorite ten things. Nana Won! Next we played Head Banz.
 Brody kept us all on target, circling the room answering our inquiries. Do I fly? Do you wear me? This game can go on for a long time. I didn't mind. So fun to watch the family laughing and interacting.

After the games it was time to fly the new elves. Brody still loves these happy red elves. The new ones names are Betty and Perry. Ant Jean had never flown elves before but she knew exactly how to do it! There was lots of running in the house!

I wish you could hear the noise. Very loud and happy!
And then it was time for the CAKE!  Brody's mom paid 25.00 for it. Wait till you see it.

An elf on the shelf creation. It was from a bakery that makes cake from scratch. White cake delicious.
Brody was elated. He is a holiday guy! Loves holidays. We learned from Jean's game that his birthday is his favorite day. I guessed Christmas. What do I know? I also didn't know elves could play with you all year long!
                                                        Pure Birthday joy
                                                        my elf loving boy
                                                        to the North Pole in dreams
                                                        celebrated soaring
                                                       seasonal toys that found
                                                       a true every day friend.

Painted Carousel


September is Brody's birthday month! Six years old! The holidays begin on his birthday! Then we go  full swing into Halloween, Kenz's birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas..... little lighted celebrations strung together with smiles and oh ya cooler nights. Tommorrow I begin a new poetry class at a place I've never taken a class at before .I am so excited. I better get to stepping, get to work. You know how much I love Friday. This week Friday was here quicker because of Labor Day.  In my free :) time I'm doing the free Yale class Modern Poetry. So cool. Check out all the available free Yale classes on the sidebar of Nana's Rockin Links.  There's never a reason to be without a class! Learning makes the world go round. Poems are my painted carousel, taking me up and down on a nice ride round my days. As I said a few minutes ago, I have to run!
