Compound Nouns

This weekend despite the continual rain and a near miss at the puppet show (Henry didn't make it past the intro music) we had a lot of fun. We had fun visiting his grandparents, had a good church breakfast and heard lots of new compound nouns. His new words include, "birdhouse," "cheese truck," "raincoat," "tow truck" and "water bottle."

Henry amused himself for forty-five minutes one day carrying these bottles into the dining room and arranging them on the table.

8,000 halves produced six 90% halves (1935S, 1954, 1959D, 1960, 1963, 1964D), twelve 40% halves (6 x 1967, 7 x 1968D, 1969D) and one proof (2005S). That's a bit better than last week and the Walker was a nice upgrade to the one in my album.

Found: 1 penny (at Bank of America)

cheese truck?

Yup. He saw it in his favorite book of all time, Richard Scarry's Cars And Trucks And Things That Go.

That explains it! You can't beat a bit of Richard Scarry. I'm pleased that Henry is sharing some great things from my own childhood.
