A few months ago Marlie started getting into Lego sets. I sold the girls Little People blocks and used the money to get them each a new set. Marlie got a Lego friends set and I naievly got Sam the Duplo ones - you know, smaller than Mega Blocks but bigger than Legos? Well Sam liked them for about a week and then started working on Marlie's . . . the Duplos are now in the pile for fall consignment . . . and Samantha, yea, don't worry about it - it took her 2 sessions at about 1 hour each to independently complete the Beauty Shop . . . but she did it - all 223 pieces . . . WOW!!!
The program at the museum today was about puppets. And the activity was to make your own puppets . . . and while very different, each girl's puppet was AWESOME in it's own right. Marlie's was a 2 toned pattern perfectly colored - then she decided if she made a little adjusting of her own, she could get the arms to flap - so she did. Samantha's was purple for her favorite color and brown "because that's what color bears are Mom!" . . . but every color - in the lines!!! Barely 4 and she colors completely in the lines . . . WOW!
I say all the time that I am amazed by these 3 . . . each one of our kiddos is so different, but so completely awesome and wonderful. WOW . . . never thought I could be so impressed by people under 4 feet tall . . .
