This outside play thing is from my mom and dad.
Her AB that she was working on
Well in the past couple of weeks and taking a parenting class I decided that I needed to add just a little more structure to our day, especially with Lydia. So I decided what a better way to add another activity to our day than to add a craft. Then I decided why not add some alphabets with our craft. So I am teaching Lydia what the letters of the alphabet look like and what order they go in. It has been fun. We have been just doing it for 2 days but she seems to enjoy it. I also decided to add some pictures from the warm days of spring.
My mom came down to visit us and today we decided to take a fun trip to the zoo. It was just my mom and Lydia and I and we had a great time. We have enjoyed having my mom here and she has wanted to take Lydia to the zoo for a long time. It is amazing how God had created each one of these creatures unique and strong and can survive. Lydia's favorites were the penguins and the cat house. Cats right now are her favorite animals. Although her one request was to the see the giraffe and the elephants so those were among the first animals we saw. My mom and I really enjoyed the bird house. I loved watching how a penguin could swallow a whole fish with what seemed like one gulp. Each time I see how God created each one of these animals it reminds me that we are Fearfully and Wonderfully made to be created like our Father.
We have been enjoying the last couple of days of sunshine here. I realized that sometimes my mood can be changed a by the weather. So I have purposed in my mind to Rejoice in the Lord as Lydia says ALWAYS!!! So weather the day is rainy or there is warm sunshine or it is even snowing I am going to try to make my mood not be affected by it. Seth and Lydia have also been enjoying the warm sun as we have been able to play outside. It is interesting that this time last year I was pregnant and now my little boy is 7 months old and growing like a weed. Lydia too is growing in body but also in verbal ways as well. She can now count to ten but she for some reason miss 4 so her counting is 1,2,3,5,6,7,8,9,10 So we are working trying to get her to put 4 in there. But as I am speaking about the sun I realized I would like to take lydia outside so I am going to do that now.
