The kids have mostly been watching movies for the last two weeks, pretty much nonstop. Except for the breaks when Aleks plays Star Wars Lego for an entire day. I got tired of the constant background music created by Scooby Doo and the Ghost Pirates (not sure that it's actually called that, but that's what it is), so I said, "hey! Let's do some painting!" And they did.
Aleks used his fingers for probably the first time ever and Bastian experimented with color more than he usually does, blending it, which he never does. He also painted back and forth rather than just in circles. It was a nice time.
