May Day & Dump Trucks


Igor's nursery school celebrated May Day today. We danced around the May pole and enjoyed a lovely picnic lunch with fresh picked strawberries and cream for dessert. YUMMY.
Igor has added one additional stop to our drive home from nursery school. After stopping by the Fire Station, to count the chief cars, we stop by the new construction site. Last week we found an opening in the fence where we can peek in. We sit on the concrete barricade watching the excavator, bulldozer and dump trucks work. Today was our forth visit to the site. When the construction foreman pulled up next to us this afternoon I thought he was going to ask us to leave or move to a different location. The foreman surprised me by giving us permission to park in the worker's parking spots across the street! He said we didn't need to waste money in the parking meter anymore. YIPPEE! What a sweet gift to receive! I really hope BOC (son #2) will enjoy construction sites as much as Igor does. It looks like we will be spending a lot of time at this site.
Our contractor is finished. It's a huge relief to have them done and gone. My stress level has returned back to normal. We have put Igor's play room back together and the bedrooms. We need to get the dining room and office squared away. I really want the dining room table cleaned off so we can start the new jigsaw puzzle my parents sent. Rob and I love to put puzzles together.

Happy May Day!! I'm sure that BOC with *LOVE* construction sites and "Bob the Builders" (what kids who watch TV call heavy equipment!)

Love you! Susan

Oh that sounds like a fun day! My nephew loves "Bob the Builder" and when asked what his mommy and daddy should name their expected child, he said "Scoop or Farmer Pickles". Gabe has since begun to refer to Alexandra as Farmer Pickles, arg. Kids are too funny, like Igor with BOC. So sweet.

With Love,
