Grandsitting Day 2

Monday, July 31st

Up at 9 a.m., Izzy made her own parfait, with a cherry on top. I was too late to photograph the cherry! "This would be a good place to have breakfast," she told me!
"Do you want me to make it, or do you?"
"I will."
She topped it with a cherry!

Next, we wrote and filmed a video. The video recorder is broken, so we have to use the camera. Pretty tricky.

Then, they decided to do another video. They wanted to go to a movie-making day camp, but it was full. We did it, instead!

We did some painting!

After lunch, Jos came to me and said that she could hear some scritching in their room. They are sleeping in the basement, and have a fun set up.
Down we went. Annie, you can see, was a character of the 2nd movie.

Annie hears a sound from Jennifer Jilks on Vimeo.

It was a bat. Jos ran out and fetched  the butterfly net, I grabbed a large book. I slipped the net under the bat and it  grabbed on to the net. Putting the book overtop the opening, I ran to the door, which Isabelle opened wide. The bat flew off and up into the pine tree. I think it had been stuck in the stove all night.

Dinner was hot dogs, just for fun. At dinner, we made lists of activities, then penciled them in for days of the week. Grampa has a doctor's appointment Tuesday. Next, we made lists of possible dinners we could have, and chose a couple for the next few days.

 They wrote another play, after dinner, and videotaped it on their own! Grampa and I watched the news about the White House!
We girls spent prebedtime editing part of the new movie, then saved the rest for Tuesday. Here is a portion of the video!

One wonders what the bat must have thought.
