Hanging out at the zoo, and Ruby turns 3 1/2!

It has been quite a week. Reid learned how to climb on the dining room chairs (and table). I take him down and say "no" every time, because I don't want him to fall off and get hurt.

She gets especially talkative in the evenings. She and I are memorizing Psalm 23 together, and we have half of it down! She's better at memorizing than I am. A few days ago we watched Singing in the Rain, and when they would dance, so would she! It was so cute. Reid has learned to climb on the kitchen chairs... which scares me a little bit.
