what’s in your purse?

July 27, 2007

this weeks portal theme at blue bazaar was a fun one for me because i’ve just returned from a trip to Sydney & had to think carefully about what i carried in my bag.

Supplies: fontwerks paper, american crafts thickers lettering, zig pen

speaking of the bag, there were lots of favourable comments about it – from a security guard in "the basement shop" at the QVB to a lady in my SIL’s favourite shoe store where i found a fabulous pair of shoes to match! more on them later! 😉

bear & the big blue bike

July 2, 2007

we gave bear this fabulous red trike (& trailer) for his 4th birthday & he just loved it!

his balance & co-ordination is so good, that he made the transition from trike to bike easily – taking off the training wheels within a couple of days. so when his red bike broke recently, he decided to try madi’s big blue bike. its so big that he needs something to help him get on

but once he gets going, there’s no stopping him!

we’ve been using this great educational site for the past couple of months & i’ve been thrilled with madi’s progress. it has interactive Q & a fast facts area where you compete against the computer or other kids. this photo was captured as madi was on her way to her current highest score of 23:
