Clowning around

We had plenty of time to clown around last week on Horseshoe Lake, when we weren’t busy swimming, boating, or otherwise relaxing. Spencer got very enamored of Monopoly, begging whomever he could find to play with him at 7:00 in the morning. We also spent a fair amount of time playing Hell, a card game that I have only ever played with my mom’s family. It’s a great game.

Sippy cups

Spencer and Meg goofing around on the stairs with their new sippy cups. They really seem to like these Tommy Tippee cups, which makes sense because they have a million pieces. I love how you can really see their interactions with each other develop.

Brother and sister

Although this week was a bit rough with Spencer fighting bedtime from anywhere between 15 minutes of whining and 2 hours of screaming, he is still a really awesome kid, and a great big brother. Yesterday morning Clare was nursing Meg, and Spencer decided he wanted to help, so he brought Meg a bottle from the bottle drawer. We decided we should let Spencer try to give her a bottle. He was quite interested in it.
