Over the weekend we made some lacing cards. Last summer Finn discovered my old set from my childhood and loved them and we thought it would be fun to make some. We used an old storybook and cut out the images and took them to Kinkos to be laminated. We used a hole punch ( A new toy Finn loves) and made holes and then took some string and taped the end up and presto...the kid sat for 25 minutes quietly today! It also peeked his interest in Alice in Wonderland. Hello! We are so reading that this week!
I can't believe that!' said Alice.
Can't you? the Queen said in a pitying tone. Try again: draw a long breath, and shut your eyes.
Alice laughed. There's not use trying, she said: one can't believe impossible things.I daresay you haven't had much practice, said the Queen.
When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
