We played outside today for a loooong time. Oliver pulled his wagon around (will post pics of that later) and helped me water the flowers...and himself. He spent about half an hour scooping up rocks with his trowel and putting them in that bucket and then pouring the bucket back out so he could do it again. I just let him because he was playing quietly, not running into the road, and working on a very important skill - eye hand coordination. He was having a really hard time keeping the rocks on the trowel at first until he figured out to keep it level until he got it to the bucket. After that it was no problem...he'd rake them loose from the ground and then scoop scoop scoop them up. Bob took the last picture and it turned out so well that I just had to post it.
