|On vacation at home, with my aunt|
The weekend was nearly a complete blur, but we recently got a copy of The Barefoot Book of Poetry, which is fantastically beautiful, and Geoff's Dad and stepmom visited on Sunday afternoon and Nathaniel, of whom I am very proud, read them Jabberwocky out of it. He did an excellent job. I'm trying to read at least one poem aloud from it every day, but things have been pretty crazy, and I haven't always succeeded. We've definitely read milly and molly and mandy and Jabberwocky and Fern Hill and parts of The Stolen Child, and everyone listened to The Tale of Custard the Dragon a couple of days ago.
Monday was my birthday, and a special trip for the girls- Randy and Lorraine, my inlaws, took them to the Toronto Aquarium to see all the fishies! They came home with a large and a small penguin each, because everything comes in mother and baby sets in their world.
Tuesday we went to the park in the morning, and in the afternoon my uncle Dennis babysat while Lynn and I went to my parents' house to set up an in home caregiver.
