Lofty Ambitions

After some tiding up yesterday, Providence and I began work on a puzzle. A few minutes into it Providence decided that the one I picked was too hard. As a puzzle lover I was extremely disappointed (yes extremely) to not even get into putting it together, as we were still organizing when Providence made her declaration. I suppose a 750 piece puzzle may be a bit much for a three year old, but in my defense it was a Snow White one. On the fifth or sixth remark made about how hard it was, and since she wasn't helping anymore anyhow I said we could put it away...I had gotten it out for her in the first place (I really had). Providence made the next puzzle choice; I did the outside so she could put together the center. It didn't quite satisfy my puzzle itching but Providence was very proud.

Also, I finally took a picture of the very first room finished in the house, done ages before Providence's room, just hasn't been debuted. The guest room. So anyone coming out this way, there's a bed waiting.

I was pretty sure that puzzle would be too hard for Providence. But you could do it and she can be proud of you! I can't wait 'till we come to visit. I can't believe it's already February!

love the guestroom. Im big into quilts.

The puzzle w/ 750 puzzles looks hard for me hehe. I dont blame Providence for wanting an easier one. hehe

Caleb does well w/ wooden puzzles.. he has issues w/ lining up odd shapes.. but as long as the shapes are "normal shapes" or have the image under the piece he does well. I think boys develope their fine motor skills MUCH slower than girls. My friend Kelly her daughter Anna is like a master mind compared to Caleb. SHES SO BRIGHT for her age (their the same age). I think it all has to do with them being boy and girl

The guest room looks very inviting. I can't wait until we come. The kids keep asking why we have to wait so long for a visit. They are very excited! So am I!
