just my day

today was a great day. we went down town to give David some money, went to the art museum where the kids had a great time playing. We went to the local farmer's market and bought bananas, apples and tomatoes. We went home and took naps. We went to the store to get some more food then played at the park. We came home had some sort of a dinner and took baths and now are relaxing watching a movie.
it was a nice day to walk around and we had a great time. The kids were great.
I am grateful to have this time in a different culture, to not only visit England but live here and have a life here, to set my home and family here to enjoy the different culture, people, and landscape. I am truly grateful for David and that he is willing to sacrifice so much now to prepare for career in the future. It is hard to remember the long term goal when you are in the midst of studying everyday.

my kids are silly

Fenton is truly a boy. I have heard of other mothers telling me their story of their boys, but I never thought it would happen to me. I got up to get Fenton and he had taken off his pants and diaper and yes, he had pooed in his diaper and was checking it out, to say it nicely. This has happened a couple of times now and I can't leave him long with just his diaper on, because within seconds it will be off. He loves being naked.
so about Eliza,
We were riding the metro and she was standing on the seat touching the glass, then she decides that it needs to be clean, so she licks her fingers and wipes it on the window. This is not good enough so she licks her whole hand and wipes it on the window. This starts to gross me out, so I get her a wipe so she can use that to wash the window in the metro. That kept her attention for a few minutes, then of course that wasn't good enough either, so then she licked the window!!! GROSS!!
Eliza is starting to recognize letters and when she sees me wearing something with letters she will point out the letters she knows. I love it. Well I was wearing my Jackson Hole sweatshirt and she recognizes some letters so I help her out, I say "this is an H" and the she responds " and an "o" "l" and "e". "that right" I reply and then she says "that says mom". I just had to laugh that she spelled hole and referred it to me.
