This Week

Aaron built a knex airplane

Aaron read to Alexander for Alexander's daily reading the day mommy was gone.

Alexander is getting good at reading!
Flawless on the Pets Reading Cards stack!

He loves to read books again too.
He really likes Curious George the very naughty monkey.

Alexander made his own version of chess

We're almost to Easter!

Andrew beat Super Tux Kart for the first time

Andrew made a knex stingray

Andrew practiced really hard at piano this week and earned a slinky

This week we spent a lot of time looking at possible buildings

This lady showed us a different building and then showed us this local boarding school kindergarten in another building she owns

Nate built a lego chess set and Aaron is trying to organize a family chess tournament

While out looking at buildings we saw many interesting things.
This one person "car" was one.
Alexander called it a toy car.

Playing Traverse

We finally found our little friend

And we saw a rainbow

Happy Birthday Evie!

We hope you have a great day! Wishing you a day full of pink, cake, and balloons!

We made some pictures for presents for you!

Love and Hugs,
The Ruggs

(The bees are humming Happy Birthday!)

Princess Evie and the Green Unicorn
Have a great birthday Evie!
Love, Andrew

This is a Eviecorn!
(I guess Evie as a Unicorn?
We told Alexander Evie likes pink and unicorns and he drew this and said
it was an Eviecorn!)
Hugs from Alexander

Sparkly green gak

Playing each other on Chesskids

Aaron is starting to get the hang of jumproping

And Alexander is starting to be able to blow bubbles by himself

And Andrew he invented a new form of dodgeball called
"Bottom Ball"
and you should always pronounce it in your most menacing voice.

"Mom! I'm making burp poop-poops!!!"
Good for you son; you're all boy.

Summer came to our plates

Reading and writing outside.
Alexander is getting good at playing the game where he can point to the correct word when you say it.
