Leader of the Pack

Last night Henry and I had some fun drawing on the kitchen floor. It's pretty exciting to draw something and have him recognize it. Meg bought some beginner crayons and chalk recently. We've both been encouraging him to use them. So far he's just scribbled, not on the walls yet, but he did use chalk on the house.

Meg's also been able to really get Henry going playing ring-around-the-rosie. Even though Henry gets really dizzy with it after a few times he keeps asking for her to do it more. I tried to step in and take over so Meg could recoperate, but she seems to be able to be a bit more silly than me (at least for now). I'll have to take a video of it soon.

This morning Henry had a good time playing with his rocking worm. I think it looks a bit like he's riding a motorcycle when he's on it.

Last night I picked up some more coin.

1,960 quarters turned up just five Canadians and one Jillian's token.

1,150 dimes produced one silver Rosie (1952), two Canadians, one Aruba 10¢ and a US penny.

800 nickels yielded just one Canadian and a Namco arcade token.

2,100 pennies had twelve Wheats and nineteen Canadians. One of the Wheats was my oldest Wheat in near pristine condition. It's a 1928, but it is hard to believe it. The Wheats were:

1918, 1928, 1935, 1940(2), 1945, 1946D, 1950D, 1956, 1956D, 1957, 1957D

Found: 2 pennies (at Costco)

Now, why is it then when I draw all over the kitchen floor, Amber goes ballistic at me!?
