Serenity in March


Twirling in the Park! And hey, I kinda did her hair =)

Serenity loves doing "experiments" in the bathroom. She collects water and soap in lots of containers. It's so fun to see her imagination at work! Science is still one of her favorite things about school, she may have a science theme for her birthday =)

Serenity loves to tell stories. Half the time when she’s playing I hear her narrating in the third person. The other day she was playing with her magic wand, I heard her say, “It all began when Wanda was wondering what to do.” She kept repeating the phrase, adjusting it a little, and then went on with Wanda’s adventures for awhile. I don’t know of any Wandas in any of our books or shows, so I guess she named her character after her wand. =) Today at the zoo she picked up a little branch of leaves that had fallen on the ground and told us her pet giraffe was following us home, and she had her snack all ready for her. She named the giraffe Polly.


At the park with Papa

Dad has started taping her a new show, the Little Einsteins. They play classical music and show famous art and landmarks around the world. Serenity loves June, the little girl in the purple dress that dances all the time. She pretends to be June, and I am Annie, Donovan isQuincy, and Daddy is Leo. I think Donovan is going to be confused as she calls him Quincy half the time right now. It is fun watching her dance and twirl though! I think we may try dance lessons this summer. =)


Since the first Easter Eggs showed up in the store, Serenity has been asking to get some new plastic ones to hide.  So she was very excited yesterday when we colored our Easter Eggs and had a blast hiding them around the yard.  She’d chosen a glittery egg kit so they were very fancy.  She was too funny, whenever she’d find an egg she’d look, and look, and say, “Something’s not right about that tree” or “Something is not right about that slide.”  Then she’d giggle and add the egg to her basket.  She’s very quick to ask for clues if she doesn’t see the eggs.  She loves making guesses when we do give in and give her clues, like if I tell her to look for something yellow, she’ll say, “I think I’m going to look in the dandelions.”
The first thing she tells me when she gets in the car after school is whether she was in the “first science” or the “next science.”  She adores science class and it matters a lot whether she got to do it first or second.  Right now they are discussing mammals, reptiles, birds, and other animal groups.  Last week was the last week of fish she tells me so we’ll see what’s in store for this week.  She likes to tell me about warm blooded versus cold blooded animals right now, which is fun!  She also loves library and tells me what the librarian reads her.
We took a trip to Dallasfor Braley’s birthday.  She was such a cute little ladybug =)  We stayed with Brian, Linh and Samantha.  The girls actually played with each other and had so much fun together!  Samantha invited Serenity to her birthday party (which is in August)  I love that they enjoyed each other so much!

Serenity got her face painted at Braley's birthday! She also got a unicorn balloon.

John and Ann came for a visit!  We were all so excited!  They bought Serenity a real bike (with training wheels, of course).  It’s Tinkerbell and has the most awesome bell that sounds like faeries.  We went up to the cabin one day and they had a blast canoeing in the extremely high water.


Her Bike!

One more look at her "fancy" hair =)
