Play-Doh Babies and Walruses



We went to the park one morning. Eleanor enjoyed swinging, sliding, and sitting in the grass. Matt enjoyed a new lens.


I know this picture is blurry, but I wanted to show you one of Eleanor's favorite pasttimes, reading. Here she's reading the phone book.

Eleanor's imagination is running wild these days. Yesterday a blue pillow became a walrus. She likes to pat it and say, "Good boy walrus." Once a rolled up blanket became a dolphin that she was riding. A ribbon was a fish, a suitcase, and a bunch of grapes, all in the span of 15 minutes. Eleanor is so much fun to be around these days.

I love that you are recording all of these tidbits - she'll enjoy them so much one day!

Love the new lens shots...especially the first picture because you can see the swinger and the swingee (new spellings of both)..ha! Kids imaginations are so much fun and I think we learn a lot from them as adults to be that carefree.

Glad to hear that my granddaughter is having fun playing with household objects versus imported toys that can be lethal!

Grr rr rr rr still thinks when Eleanor is swinging she looks a little Calvinistic--well you know her expressions remind him of Calvin's expressions in the cartoon of Calvin and Hobbs...
As for me I am happy to see Eleanor READING!!!! I wish some of my first graders were that interested in reading!
