Then Daniel walked around the house with these walking cups. We actually have a set for each of the kids because they love them. I also have about 30 hula-hoops. Hula-hoops are great things. Joshua likes to construct things with them.

Parents are teachers
I had a great meeting today with the director of the Parents as Teachers program here in Kodiak. Parents as Teachers runs from August to May. The main purpose of this FREE program is to teach parents how to interact with their 0-3 year old children in a positive way that encourages growth and learning from the child (and the parent!). I have quite a bit of infant/early development stuff from my time spent at the gym helping with the Kids Fit and Fun program there. So today, the PAT program and I went through many of the materials and they are now the proud new owners of quite a bit of stuff that's been taking up space in my garage. Before the director came over, I brought all the stuff into the livingroom to sort through it. The kids woke up from naps to find all sorts of exciting things that they somehow had forgotten that we had. It's so much fun to pull out toys we haven't played with in a while. The above picture is Megan and Daniel in the play tunnel together.
