smatterings

Well this going to be one long picture filled post. We have been busy and I have been tired and not wanting to post, but I got this spare moment.
Right now.
So I am just gonna sit here and post.
So we have been taking advantage of all the FREE events in ours and surrounding communities.
The kids went to a book club event, and had a snack and made a craft relating to the book. It was mostly second graders who could read well, and M was just blown away at the level that these kids read at compared to her. It has inspired her (she is competitive) to buckle down and really hit the books. 
That's been interesting, she has been really working hard. It's amazing what motivates kids.
 We went back to New Haven green for the Arts and Ideas venue for a Jose Gonzales concert. He played Latin American beats from all places spanish speaking. It was great.
We ate some tacos from the curb side burrito stand to make the whole deal even more grande. Grandpa came too!
 There were even bubbles!
Great stuff.
Then we caught the Tim Latta act which was very cool! 
 He did crazy stuff on stilts.
 He incorporated masks
to dramatic music and he did these fluid movements.
It was mesmerizing.
The kids loved the masks!
 Ev was really sad when it ended.
Really.
so sad.
Next, we hopped on the free trolley and took a trip around the city with our friends.
Later that night, we caught a magic show at the library. It was quite funny. Lots of neat tricks and jokes,
 And bunnies.
Look at all that petting!
Balloon sword fights
 girly balloon poodles!
The next day our weird egg sack that I could not identify hatched, appears to be wee wasplike bugs?
We still don't know?
We have been making progress on some uninvited house mates!
We are still catching and releasing, as far as the arm can chuck them, babies!
Today my dear freind Cari and her beautiful baby boy, Yanni, came for a visit.
She is pregnant and looking great, and I just can't wait to see this new baby. I'm thinking girly thoughts for her!
 We had a great day just chatting, and eating.
E had a weird game going on. It went a little like this:
 Sit in a creek
 dump water on thyself
Repeat.
 Anyway, there is so much going on for free in these parts. Check out what's going on in yours. I bet you will be amazed!
 This weekend is a busy one. Stay tuned!-K
