Last night Aunt Jess and Uncle Tim came over to sleep at our house on their way to California and visit with us. It was a nice break from our routine and seemed to settle Hazel a bit before bedtime (just when we needed it too! :) ).

Henry was extremely talkative last night, especially with Jess. I heard some good things about his day. He had fun at preschool playing with some blocks with another kid that he named. They made a city and cars out of the blocks, including a limousine. The teacher's assistant told Meg that Henry was very talkative. Meg told me Henry went very willingly to school (from the van anyway) and said "goodbye" to his teacher when he left. Henry also mentioned the new animal they put on the wall, a fish, and came home turning off lights and saying, "stop, look and listen!" and "time to clean up!" All three things we'd welcome anytime at our house!

Hazel's been trying climb up absolutely everything at home. We're considering some sort of restraint system. Perhaps a ball and chain? ;)

This morning I realized I had forgotten to go through a bag of mixed coin, so I searched just a bit before work.

11 small dollars had nothing.

760 quarters had one Canadian and one US dime.

600 dimes produced nothing.

520 nickels turned up three Canadians (2 Ni) and one US dime.

350 pennies yielded four Wheats (1939, 1946, 1953, 1955D), one Canadian and one US dime.
