Using the Time Outs for Learning

We've had a lot of time outs lately.  One day after a timeout where Nolan was especially quiet (could be good or bad!) I came and and this is what he did!?!  I've got to give this guy credit, he's a smart little guy.  I then wrote out the lower case letters and he did all those too, without me even asking or suggesting!!  (that was a different time out) 
Proud guy!

For the Wall

I've begun using a new setting on my camera which just takes bursts of photos which can be totally fun, especially when recording Nolan swinging the bat or really Nolan doing anything since that kid just moves all day long.  What is also great is catching these fleeting moments!  It means I'm clearing out loads of photos from each time I take pictures but then I can capture gems like this.  LOVE it.

Oh! And let's not forget Storyland

This guy needed lots of prodding to get him on the rides but once he was on he seemed to enjoy them!
This one was most excited about the misting tent... 
 And then the boys took a tractor ride
 and an old german wooden carousel
 And they both loved sitting on the rooster 
 I don't understand the rooster here but they loved sitting on it
