keeping busy

3 03 2011

Obviously I haven’t really blogged in ages. I have lots of excuses, and some are even valid. But here we are anyhow.

Kajsa’s busy as ever… so many things, activities, games, sayings, moments.. that I have been hoping to blog. Oh well. Christmas, winter, family, friends, Midwinter Conference in Chicago, during the blizzard, sledding at home, snow, playing games, inventing new games, baking and cooking…. etc.

Snow! Snow! Snow!

One of her favorite activities lately is playing “Airport”.. with her toy airplane, some random animals/people (including pipe cleaner people at times) and some gates–B1-B10. That is, as long as we keep rescuing the gates from Abby’s mouth when she tries to swipe them. It’s so fun to watch and listen, as Kajsa plays “Airport”, lining the people up at the gates, asking the pilot how he/she is doing, taking the ariplane to different places–but mostly to Alaska.

I continue to be amazed at this age–how much like a sponge kids are, how much they learn, and how quickly… and how their personalities continue to develop. It’s such a fun age.

Today we had an incredible experience! We went for an airplane ride–in a private airplane. A 2-seater… so Jim went up first, then I went up. And in between, Kajsa tried on the headphones and sat in the passenger seat… looking very cool, of course. Hopefully I’ll post more photos later this week, but suffice it to say, for now, that this was incredible. Fun. Beautiful. Gorgeous. I could have stayed up there for a loooong time. At least I think I could have. Thanks, Nancy and Steve!
