New Friends, Sno-Cones and a Slip-n-Slide

We moved into a wonderful community of Fuller students and their families. Our community is comprised of families, couples and single people. There are about ten kids ranging in age from in utero to about eight years old. It's a great place to be and we are all enjoying it immensely. Eleanor is loving having so many other kids to play with and fun new places to play. About twenty times a day she asks (or begs) to go to the "blue car," which is a toy in the shared courtyard across the street. Part of the reason she loves going to the blue car is because most of the time there are other kids out.

Today there was a community event thanks to a Sno-cone machine that didn't have to be returned until Tuesday. After Eleanor's nap, we went to the "green area" for Sno-cones and fun. Don't be fooled, the green is really fake grass.

Here's a picture of the Sno-cone party:


After the Sno-cones were gone, the slip-n-slide came out. Eleanor watched with interest as Andrea (4) got a running start then threw herself onto the slide. Eleanor tried to do it exactly like Andrea. Here's the photo sequence:

What a great set of photos! Glad you all are finding a cool spot. Maybe you could use the slip and slide in the kitchen.

Eleanor is really growing up fast--she looks like she has grown inches since she left Arkansas!
Keep up the good photos!
