The Stars Align

Mim has been initiated by her brother into the world of Super Mario Galaxy. One player does all of the moving and other actions, but a second player can be the "co-star" and there are a few things they can help with, like collecting "star bits" and freezing the enemies. Mim has figured out that she can play with brother this way, and he's an excellent teacher. (He frequently plays co-star for Daddy.)

It does my mommy's heart good to see them playing together. Oh, and I was able to clean the kitchen while they entertained themselves for about fifteen whole mintues. Blessed peace.

It is so fun to have them finally play together well, lol.
We just got a Wii yesterday and the kids are playing so nicely together, except Trinity, she's a fuss bucket.

Ah, you received a glimpse of freedom. In a few years they will keep busy for more than 15 minutes, and you might even be able to have some quality time for yourself. :)

Congratulations on the clean kitchen. I know how rewarding that feels!

While they were at my house the other day, after they finished their snack, I sent them in the living room to sit on the couch and watch volleyball while I tidied up the kitchen. It was only about 5 minutes, but they did what they were told and I found them snuggled up with the quilt, sitting quietly when I joined them. They are such good kids! I took some pictures, but I need to resize them before sending them to you.

We had a great time yesterday. I had to say no a few times, but never to the same activity. We "took a walk", moved the chairs with wheels into one long line, arranged the chairs into groups, each took a ride on a chair as Grandma pushed,sang songs with the cd,played lots of kitchen. Mim gave the cow a bath in the toy sink, along with the baby doll.
