My Jedi

Today was my day off (I work 4 days/week) and I had a great day with Jack. Before Jenna started first grade, I was a little apprehensive about how a whole day with Jack would go because he plays with her so much and is so needy when he doesn't have his playmate! I am happy to report that we're having a blast and really enjoying our days together. Today, the schedule included errands, vacuuming, laundry, watching a little PBS Kids, having lunch at school with Jenna, Wii, and then a little sewing. You can tell which parts of the schedule were at his request and which were at mine! 

To keep Jenna occupied when I was sewing, I kept an art bag in my sewing room that she could only play with in there and she loved it. Jack could care less...so today, when we headed upstairs, I suggested that he bring up a few Star Wars characters to play with. He did and kept himself very busy for about 30-40 minutes playing with them, then asked if he could help. He was a great helped cutting threads for me, then wanted to play with the scissors. I set him loose with my scrap bag and a pair of scissors and he had a blast. Before long, he told me he had made a belt to hold his lightsaber. 

Don't you love the 4 1/2 year old imagination?

Adorable! I have a 7 year-old who thinks he's a ninja and he can be seen sticking sticks in makeshift belts all the time!
