play group

one of the miracles of my neighborhood is playgroup. i know, a lot of people have the benefit of playgroup, but how many have all the members living within walking distance? (yes, i walk to Nicole's house on occasion.) anyway, Anna has benefited greatly from her weekly activities with her friends, and Maddie too looks forward to the day it's at our house. she loves running around with the big kids. here is a game i like to call "race," i call out an area in our (large) yard and everyone runs to it. running is a good way to keep 4 two year olds occupied. here they are at "wall." running back from "tree." can you guess which two kids are most athletic, and which two love to skip and look at flowers?
"basket!" another avorite passtime of the kids is basketball, though the girls tire of it faster than McGuire! he is playgroups MVP.
"little wall," by this time Anna and Lucy were really lagging.... here they are, i guess they really don't get the whole point of racing.
oh, playgroup how i love you! now if i could just decide what i wanted to do for pre-school next year. now that we're having another baby, i'm really leaning towards putting her in. we'll see.

Love the pictures! I love our play group too...and even though McGuire is the only boy in the group, he is still so super excited to see his friends Lucy, Sera (he can't quite get her name out) and Anna!

I love the play group post! Mine is coming soon. It is the highlight of Lucy's week too.

When does she turn 3?? I started Megan in preschool the month after she turned 3, and I think she was JUST ready. If she were any younger I'd say no.

And this year - right after having a new baby - having her go 3 mornings a week has been a task getting us all up and out of the house in order to get her there. But I am so glad that she goes. Otherwise I think there would have been TOO MANY mornings spent in front of the TV when Mommy was in Newborn Zombie-land!! She really loves it. She cries when I tell her she needs to miss a day b/c she is sick!!
