We were lucky enough to have a beekeeping event hosted in our hometown. I took the boys and the highlight of the event for us was certainly drone petting. The beekeepers gave each (willing) child a drone to hold and pet. The drones were very gentle!
I loved that Ender was willing to hold a drone and he loved feeling it crawl all over his arm. I felt that Atlas was still a little too young to hold the drone, as I was worried that he would crush it. But he certainly enjoyed watching it crawl on big brother!
We’re kind of weird about the TV in our household. I really don’t like the kids watching a ton of TV, and probably five days out of the week they don’t watch any TV. We do, however, read a ton of books.
I thought it was funny this spring when Ender spent an entire afternoon pretending to be the bat from the book, Stellaluna.
Here’s a picture of him hanging upside down by his feet, just like Stellaluna learns to at the end of the book.
Ender has been really interested in skeletons lately. I don’t even remember how we started talking about skeletons, but he is constantly asking to see pictures of skeletons on my phone. A few Ender quotes:
“Can I see a fish skeleton?”
“I want to see my skeleton!”
“Mommy, my skeleton is inside my body!”
So, when my parents wanted to get together this past weekend, I thought Ender would really enjoy a trip to the natural history museum about an hour from our house.
The trip went well. We had Japanese for lunch and Atlas tried sushi (Ender refused all food).
Ender was pretty sick still at this point and he ended up falling asleep at the museum and getting carried around. But overall, I’d say the trip was a success and I’d do it again.
