Library and Produce Co-Op

Yesterday, I again was having a horrible day (with not feeling well). I made a call to my doctor and the nurse suggested taking my medication at different times of the day. We are going to try that for a week.

Kaitlynn and I went to the library to pick up some books and DVDs we had on reserve for her. We also signed up for a couple events in February.

Then we picked up our produce from the Produce Co-op. Kaitlynn loves pick up day. She kept asking if she could eat vegetables. I love the way she says vegetables. It's super cute! This week the produce consisted of 2 bushels of broccoli, 2 heads of cauliflower, celery, bananas (and we got an extra bunch of bananas, too), 2 bags of carrots, a tray of mushrooms, lettuce, 2 red onions, 1 red pepper, 6 Roma tomatoes, 3 clementines, 2 tangerines, 3 apples and 3 pears!

We made pasta with veggies, cooked broccoli and cauliflower and baked sweet potatoes for dinner.

The Beach

Monday, Kaitlynn and I didn't do much during the day. I think Kaitlynn is trying to give up her naps. She just refuses to take naps sometimes. We went to MawMaw's where she treated us to dinner at Pasta House. MawMaw spent the night at our house.

Tuesday, Kaitlynn and I took MawMaw to a doctor's appointment. I was a little concerned about the appointment, but I think the news is overall good. We will find out more once the bloodwork results come back. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers, please.

Wednesday, Kaitlynn and I attended Motor Masters at the ECC. The class is small, only 7 kids enrolled. There were only 6 kids on Wednesday. I like the class that small. It really allows the kids and parents to get to know each other. 2 or 3 of the kids have been in class with Kaitlynn before (Motor Developers). She has the same teacher (Ursula) and teacher's assistant as she did in Motor Developers, too. The theme for the class this week was the beach. After free time and circle time the kids started the gross & sensory motor stations. They got to surf on a raft, lay on their stomach (and sit criss cross applesauce) and hold a noodle while being pulled around in a circle, throw / toss a beach ball back and forth, hold a beach ball while walking on an uneven mat, surf on an uneven surface and put their feet in the sand and look for seashells. By far the favorite was taking their shoes and socks off and putting their feet in the sand. At one point all 6 kids were in the plastic pool! The next set of stations were the fine and sensory motor ones. Several activities involved tongs (shark attack and lobster activity), stamping on a big sheet of paper, play-doh, digging for gold, making a starfish picture and water table.

After class, again Kaitlynn refused to take a nap. That is until we got in the car. She fell asleep on our way to pick MawMaw up from work.
Here's a great way to watch television!

Kaitlynn loves taking pictures.
Dave, Kaitlynn, MawMaw and I enjoyed dinner at El Nopal. On Wednesday nights, they have a great promotion: buy 1 get 1 on the jumbo margaritas!
