Distance Learning Continues

 

Aubrey wanted to join Evan during his zoom class.

Still no end in sight to the lockdown and having everything on zoom.

At this rate, Evan and Hailey won't see their teachers or classes in person at all this school year.

It's a lot of work for Jeni to keep track of Hailey and Evan (mostly Evan) and their school work, while also taking care of James and Aubrey.

I try to help throughout the day, but I'm also on the computer working all day.  Crazy times.

Building Blocks

 

These kids love playing with the wooden blocks (and other wooden toys like our stackable rings).

Hailey certainly has the family record for the tallest tower.

And then there's Aubrey, who just wants to knock everything down.

I helped Evan build his 3d puzzle rubber band gun I got him for Christmas.

It's pretty cool and really works.

11 Months Old

This little girl just loves being outside (she throws herself on the ground and cries when we bring her back inside).


Aubrey loves to feed herself in her high chair (and make a big mess).

She walks around everywhere. She loves jumping and bouncing, especially to music.


Aubrey loves getting into Hailey's dollhouse and wrecking block towers and Legos.

She loves to ride in the red push car.

She's obsessed with shoes and loves to bring shoes and books to us.

She's now learning to play peek-a-boo with us.

Lego Diagon Alley

Time to put our new Lego Diagon Alley together.


Each of the kids and I picked a building to put together. James needed help so I worked on 2 of them.

Looking good.





Here it is all put together!

Olivander's Wand Shop, Scribbulus, Quality Quidditch Supplies, The Daily Prophet,

Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlor, Flourish & Blotts, entrance to Knockturn Alley, and Weasley's Wizard Wheezes.

These buildings are around the same height and width of the Lego modular buildings and about half as deep.

I love having a street full of Harry Potter buildings.



These buildings are so fun.


The interiors are cool too.
