With all the rain we’ve been getting here in Southern California, mushrooms are popping up in lawns everywhere. I’ve really enjoyed watching the circle of mushrooms emerge on our front lawn. They appeared on a day when all my electronics were going wonky, and as I told the kids this was because there was too much magic in the air, they nodded very seriously.

I’m lucky they still play along with me. 🙂

I’ve had this customizable travel mug for YEARS, but I left the liner plain all this time. Today our 6 year old fancied it up for me, Pinkie Pie style! Oh yeah!

I bought some clay to make a Totoro, and the kids wanted in on the fun. This one looks pretty good, doesn’t it? Too bad I can’t claim credit. Next steps: bake and paint!

Little Reader

I took this pic at the dentist. The reading everywhere thing has officially started! At some point I’ll have to tell her no reading while walking. (And I will feel slightly hypocritical while saying it.) 🙂
