Then, we played with some dominoes for a bit. Luken has been asking for some for a while, and I had bought a tub of them as a calm-ish post-surgery activity. We had lots of fun!

Keeley, sulking about something - Luken probably didn't want her to knock his dominoes over!

This was my creation.

Later in the week, the kids and I spent some time outside. I was attempting some potty training with Keeley (which did not go well... we will try again another day). The kids were collecting things throughout the yard and inspecting them, and then drawing in their "Observation Journals" - a la Sid the Science Kid.

More Keeley - I hope she doesn't hate me for this one some day.
