As always we are busy in the kitchen. Harkin is loving helping to bake these days, while Izzy is having fun making smoothies with her big brother and licking the spoons. Landon has been wanting to try out sushi making for a long time now. He got the extra push when we were completing one of our subscription boxes earlier this month. It was harder than he thought but he had fun and everyone had some. It was quite tasty.
The big boys have discovered a new website to help kids draw. They have spent several afternoons drawing for hours really, The drawings are done in sharpie marker and they have come out so neat. The instructor is this cool guy and he has comic book, movie and book characters. plus a ton of other things so it really appeals to the boys. While they are boys are busy, I spend some time with the two little ones just having fun making different kinds of art. They loved dipping and stamping the circles. It's always fun to see how it will come out.
Harkin is very into his numbers these days. He loves this hundreds board and will sit for long periods of time matching the numbers. He also loves to count and has made it all the way to one hundred by himself. He needs a little help when he gets to the tens but then keeps on going. It fascinates me how much he loves numbers. I got him his own special Count to Ten book- its "his work" when the boys are doing their lessons. It's a coloring book but he absolutely loves it. My little man is growing up and not so little any more.
My sweet Landon went and turned eleven already! He is getting so big and learning how to be a young man every day. We had a great day at the new Smuggs Fun Zone. Lots of neat things to do and of course a few video games to mesmerize them all. After several hours of play we came home to try out the new presents, have a yummy meal and make your own brownie sundaes. A little different than normal but very sweet- just like my guy.
