Since I talked about what Amelia does in preschool, I thought I'd spend some time talking about what Megan likes to do while Amelia is gone. This morning, she was excited to get to play with their new indoor fairy garden all by herself. When she and Amelia try to play together with the fairy garden, Amelia usually tells Megan exactly how she can play, and Megan doesn't always agree. So today Megan had fun moving the fairies around and adding clear marbles to act as a lake.
Her favorite toy to play with right now is the Eric Carle 1, 2, 3 Zoo puzzle that Grandma brought her last month. She can do all four of the 12 piece animal puzzles almost entirely by herself. I provided some help making sure the corner pieces got in the right corner, and suggesting that she put in all the border pieces before the middle pieces, but she was proud of herself when she held up a piece and said "corner piece" and then put it in the corner.
We also went to a new park this morning because the weather was beautiful, and Megan had a great time riding on the seesaw with me and getting underdogs in the swing. We picked up some beautiful fall leaves, too; I can't believe the trees are turning color already!
Megan's newest accomplishment is that she can count from 1 to 10. She doesn't usually count things correctly (what did you say that's called, Becky?) but at least she says all the numbers in the right order.
