Skylanders and Soccer

I sewed a Skylander NightShift costume for Buster.  Apparently, he teleports, so he doesn't have legs, just some wispy mist.

Q-ster is now a big fan of Lionel Messi, champion soccer player.   A good time was had by all!

Curious George Comes Home

In first grade, names are drawn for two special things each week.  It was Buster's turn to bring Curious George home and write a story about the weekend.

George enjoyed piano lessons and eating pizza.

Coincidentally, Buster's name was also drawn to be VIP of the class for the week.  So it was a busy weekend, taking photos of George and filling out the VIP poster.  He was pretty thrilled.

The One Ring

One of Q-ster's friends has watched all of The Lord of the Rings movies, which re-ignited Q-ster's interest in the story.  He started re-reading the books, pulled out the party favor ring we got last year, and we're going to start watching the first film together.  Fun times, sharing our favorite things!

Trick Shot

Q-ster's been watching YouTube videos of Dude Perfect, a group that does sports stunts, like throwing a basketball across the entire court into the hoop, or throwing a football from the top of the stands into a target.

Tonight, he set up the laundry basket all the way across the living room and dining rooms and practiced throwing the Angry Bird pig plush (nice and soft, and therefore allowable as an indoor throw toy) until he got it in the basket.
