If you don't have two "awake" hands...

... but want to play a two -handed Wii game..... find a sister!!!

I got called in to help with Big Al's lego robotics camp yesterday, and came home to find the little girls playing Wii. They had discovered a "new" game and figured out how to play it. The game..... boxing. They loved punching the bag, but Blondie couldn't make both controllers work (her sleepy hand can hold things, but can't push buttons). Her solution was to get Cheesie all excited about the game, and then let herself hold the right hand controller, and Cheesie hold the left.
Please excuse the crud in the background, I was gone all day, and Brian is working on the computer in a whole other part of the house, so I came home to "fun day without much supervision" mess.
Check out our "harvest" from the weekend. Enough beans for the entire family of 6, 4 green peppers, 3 jalapeno peppers, and about 8 tomatoes. We've been pulling off smaller amounts of single items for awhile now, but our garden is suddenly producing a lot everyday. We ate all of the beans, made an attempt at salsa/pico d'gallo sort of thing with the tomatoes, and jalapenos, and put the peppers on pork chops last night. We're far from self-sustaining, but our kids know the work involved in a tiny bit of food.

I love reading this stuff. Jessie is going to learn so much from Blondie and your family.
