We got that little pink chair from the family who sold us their van. Jude seems to feel very special that he has his own little chair just his size.
This is the only picture I have of Jude on Easter 2010. I took him to the huge Baptist Easter egg hunt at Coolidge Park. It was so big, I couldn't figure out where to take Jude for the "under 2 years" section, so we didn't get any eggs. We did, however, take advantage of the Baptists' free donuts.
We went to a water garden store (where Carl was in Heaven!), and this is Jude pointing to the Koi fish he likes the most. He would still rather point at something than touch it.
I took Jude to the zoo, and was excited to see him play with the animals in the petting zoo. True to his nature though, he would rather point at the animals than touch them.
One more reason why homeschooling is advantageous. If you need to catch up on a subject, you can do it on the toilet and it counts as classroom time. This is a common scene in our house. Whenever Jude sits on the potty, we read him a story. He has learned a lot of important things while sitting on that potty. We ask him to "point to the ________ fill in the blank", and he totally does it. He has learned what an owl, a butterfly, a gnarled branch, and countless other things look like because of our potty-school method.
