A day with Jesse

Gillen spent the day at the farm with his friend Jack so it was just Jesse and I for the whole day. I really like the one on one time with both boys.

We read The Golden Compass. We created our own Bananagrams word game with tiles from an old scrabble set that belonged to my parents in the sixties. We are now seriously addicted to this game and can't wait to play with more people again. We made banana bread, to eat while playing Bananagrams, of course, and ate most of it. I watched Jesse practice baseball. I am so lucky to be this yellow-Croc-wearing, super talkative, baseball-loving, game-creating, tender hearted guy's mom.

I look forward to playing Bananagrams with all of you. K, you would love it. It's like scrabble but there are no points. Everyone creates their own individual crossword of words, starting out with 21 tiles (or less depending on how many people) and when you have finished making words you take another tile ("peel") and so on until someone uses the last tile and yells "Banana". And there's a dump and a "split" and a "rotten banana".
