Walking with dinosaurs.

Ok, so the dinosaur obsession has really taken hold now. Of course Colin's reaction was to hope we have a future palaeontologist on our hands, rofl! We devoured about a third of this book. There was too much to take in all in one go. Romy is currently talking Daddy through the things she's learnt today. ("Here are the tail bones of the Diplodocus. We don't have tails any more because we've evolved to walk upright. We do have a tail bone though, called a coccyx, it's from when we were monkeys").I'm amazed that she's remembered it all! She was having a good laugh at my (feeble)attempts at dinosaur name pronunciation as we read the book, lol. We've just been to Tesco's where we bought a bag of plastic dinosaurs for a couple of quid. We're going to have an identifying session in a mo' using the book. Romy has now finished regailing Colin and is now photographing the plastic dinosaurs ;o)

Romy did some fantastic reading today. She fetched this Lauren Child book from the shelf and read it all perfectly; intonation and voices too. She was so chuffed, she went to get this one and read that as well. We love Lauren Child. I find her books so hilarious and refreshing. She's a genius! After reading to me, Romy set about drawing some of the illustrations with speech bubbles.

We've also had more fun with the photocopier/printer. Romy loves nothing more than arranging various "stuff" onto it and giggling when it's printed out. Today's modern art was a screwdriver/library card/lottery ticket/hair clip/pen/scoubidou ensemble!!

Romy got a letter at Rainbows tonight saying that one of the leaders is getting married in September and could all the Rainbows turn up in uniform as a suprise. OMG, I thought this was hilarious! Can you imagine this poor woman's face when a gaggle of girlies in bright green tabards descend upon the church on her special day? I'm sure it will be a suprise, maybe not the sort she'd like though :o)
