Yesterday after two great running-up to Daddy hugs from Henry and Hazel I heard all about their creative day. Henry and Hazel both helped Meg make some cookies. Hazel helped stir the ingredients and Henry made the balls of dough, rolled them in sugar, squashed them and drizzled some frosting on them! Hazel was to help out with the balls of dough, but she kept trying to eat the raw dough (mmmm!). They also put on a cute puppet show for Meg using the loveseat as their stage, played with their marble maze and did some paintings. While Hazel was asleep Henry worked on some workbooks with Meg. He's doing really well with circling the appropriate items (items that start with a certain letter) and connecting the correct items with lines. I think he's now up to being able to do simple connect-the-dots.

Last night I searched a ton of coin.

66 small dollars and 116 half dollars had just one mint set dollar (2003D).

8,240 quarters turned up one silver Washington (1964), seven Canadians, two UK 10 pence, one Bermuda 25¢, one United Arab Emirates 1 Dirham, one Belgium 5 franc (1949), six US nickels, two US dimes and a new modern quarter for me, the 2012P Chaco Culture National Historical Park.

5,150 dimes rounded up four silver Roosevelts (1946, 1951, 1960, 1964), four Canadians and one UK 5 pence.

3,480 nickels produced three Canadians, one Bermuda 5¢ and one US dime.
