On the Kestrel front, she is driving me crazy but I noticed that she has begun "reading" herself stories - making them up based on the pictures! I love the imaginary play!
Went shopping for groceries, or rather got volunteered for it by Doug, and it was a total disaster. For one thing, Doug thinks that sending Hannah along with me actually helps and in a way it does. But she has no way of knowing which direction I am going or what I want to buy next, so she bascially wandered in circles pushing the stroller. It was so packed at that god-forsaken Superstore that I finally was reaching stress levels that were not comfortable for me. So I sent her out to the van with the kids so I could finish. While there I discovered my neighbors Innis and Jenny who had bussed it over and I offered them a ride home, which they were thrilled about. It was lovely to help them as they have been very kind to us.
