February was a pretty quiet month for us, which isn't a bad thing! We had 2 projects that we made that the boys are very excited about. One is a castle that we (I) made out of our new TV box... impressive, huh? We did have help from my dad with the spray painting. It was Ben's idea to put them names on the front. The other project is an idea we had from the ball pit area at the Children's Museum. We covered a large piece of plywood with felt and then put velcro around the PVC pipes. They can arrange the pipes however they want on the board to make tunnels, and then put marbles in them. This has kept them busy on these long winter days!
Jeremy and Ben got to go to our Korean support group's Korea New Year event and brought home a few Korean crafts. Another pictures demonstrate just how much Sam loves to read-he fell asleep on his dinosaur book in bed and at one point was even sleeping under the pages. There's also a pic of them w/their beloved Great Grandma Toodie, who watches them every week so I can tutor. They can't wait for her to come every week and bring a special treat-fruit!
Both boys are visibly growing right now, they both look so much bigger and older to me. Can't believe we just picked up Ben's kindergarten registration packet at LECC... he'll be playing t-ball there this spring as well. He's also doing great in swim lessons, he swam cross the width of the pool this week crawlstroke all by himself! Sam will go to preschool two mornings in the fall, just as he is doing this year. And he made a huge leap in his swim lessons this week as well. We switched him from a parent class to a 3 year old class where he gets in without me. He did great and I sure loved staying dry and watching from the side!
