Recovery Week Fun

So how was our week spent after returning from vacation? Full of fun of course!

First we went the next morning to pick up Sarge from our friends who pet sat for us while we were gone. This was a playdate as well and we had a great time. It was clear that Sarge was well cared for while we were gone, though he seemed happy to see us as well.

The next two days are a blur of train track building, TV show catch-up, new computer games, laundry, grocery shopping, unpacking, etc. Just when I was despairing the excesses of the kids, they ended and we had an enjoyable day playing games, creating things, building things, making popsicles, (click the link!) etc.

Overall it was a relaxing week full of typical fun things. Dinoguy practiced his backwards counting and skip counting a lot when I found and hung up his number chart we made a few years ago. I was surprised at how happy he was to see it, though I probably shouldn't have been considering how fascinated he has been by numbers lately.

Yesterday was hair trimming day for the boys - Trainboy let me trim around his ears, while Dinoguy opted for short hair like his dad.

Today the boys built a beaver dam on our couch and played beavers. That was fun to watch. While I don't find our current couch super comfortable, it seems to be an excellent building couch for the kids.

Fixitman & Dinoguy with their new haircuts, all spiffied up for church. Dinoguy was very happy I finally cleaned his jacket.
