I Think We Finally Did Her In

Our poor, long suffering speech therapist. I think we finally did her in!

When the weather is nice, therapy is often in the great outdoors. We didn't actually do her in (she was having Matt give her step-by-step directions in how to get up). Below is proof that she's really OK:

Blowing bubbles: pop, pop, pop!

To prove that we have the best speech language pathologist on this side of the Mississippi, take a gander at the boys' shirts. She made those - one says, "I'm the big brother" and one says, "I'm the little brother." Too cute!

Painting with sidewalk paint

Cheap, easy to make, and fun: sidewalk paint

We've been doing a lot of outdoor crafts lately. The latest was sidewalk paint. We discussed color, wet vs. dry, messy vs. clean, and words like drippy, thick, thin, and mixture.

For anyone brave enough to do sidewalk painting at home, the recipe is really simple:

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 6-8 drops of food coloring

You may want to double the recipe, though. We went through our paint really fast! Cleanup is simple. You can sweep it away with a broom once it dries, or get out the garden hose.
