We also read about The Titanic and put together models of the famous ship (got these reasonably priced at Consumer Crafts ..... a great option for a Mom who's not real crafty!).  The one on the left is The Titanic and the one on the right is its' "sister" ship, The Olympic.

Also this week:  swim lessons, art & nature lessons at a local park and bowling!


On a sad note, our recently acquired Green Tree Frog, Pistachio, didn't make it through the week.  He will be missed!


Join us next week for more adventure!
