Spring Break - Backyard Adventures

As I mentioned in my last post, last week was my spring break.  It was fantastic to get so much time with my little guy.  We ended up spending a TON of time outdoors.  He could spend hours just walking around the yard touching things and exploring.  Here are some pictures of our time in the yard.

We have been working on catching and kicking.  Some days he does a great job, others he struggles.  I am not too worried about it, he is only 16.5 months.  I am just glad he tries.

Writing with sidewalk chalk.

He got this castle slide for Christmas and the weather was finally nice enough to take it outdoors.  One day he decided it was fun to throw the ball up the slide and catch it as it rolled down.

 One of Xander's favorite book series is the Preschool Prep Sight Words books.  One of the books is called "The Leaves."  While we have read this book over and over again this winter, I don't think he really understood what leaves were.  He had a great time discovering them outside.  I am anxious to reread the book now that he has had some experience.
I had a chair and a book on the patio to read sometimes while I watched him.  He kept insisting on sitting in the chair and "reading" my book.  He did this numerous times, for a surprising long time.
