Around the World in a Heartbeat!

The Milan Library had a music concert as their grand opening for the Summer Reading Program. The lady did some geography with a stuffed globe, sang songs & used instruments from around the World.
Elianna was excited to be so close to a harp before the program started!

Until after the show, when she was the first one picked to actually play the harp.

Then she was very, very excited!

Selah was one of the children picked to play a maraca during a song!

She walked right up and played in front of the crowd with no hesitation.

A couple other instruments.

Broken Car!

As we were driving home from the concert, Elianna yells from the back seat, "Grandma, Grandma, did you see that broken car?" I explained that the car was called a convertible and you could drive with the top down. She then exclaimed unbelieving, " So do they break it before or after they buy it?" "That would be really cold in the winter!"
I didn't even begin to tell her that people pay more for a "broken car".

Boys' First Grandma Day

Levi & Micah had their first Grandma Day.

Yes, each child gets started younger & younger!

Actually the girls had a playdate so I watched the twins so Angela could go too!

I took pictures, fed, diapered, held , and played with them.

I was rewarded with tons of smiles, coos & a little spit-up.

It was a great Grandma Day!!!!

First time Bowling

I took the girls bowling for their first time. I had signed up for this program where the girls can bowl 2 free games every weekday this summer. (Thanks for the info Melanie!) All I have to pay is $1.99 each for their shoe rentals.
Interesting note this bowling alley has some zones that are always smoke free and the whole building is smoke free from noon to six every day.

Elianna sporting her fancy special shoes. She loved them and asked if she could keep them!

Ready, Set, Roll!

Elianna was very excited whenever she hit pins. She rolled a 58.

After several times of the lane not scoring Selah's downed pins, I went and asked what I could do to put them in the computer manually. They said her ball was rolling too slow. So they brought out this ramp for her to push her ball down. She scored 46.
Both girls had a blast. We will definitely be doing this again.

Health Exploration

Selah crawling through the ear.

Elianna's favorite was climbing through the digestive tract. Here she is in the stomach.

Winding her way through the small intestines.

Elianna laughing hysterically when I told her she was poop coming out.

Selah's favorite was picking the nose. If you stuck your hand up far enough you would get a very loud sneeze.
