Happy Friday!! Linking up with the awesome funny Jennifer Fulwiler today. What are you up to?My husband finally got fed up with me buying cd/tape/radios at the thrift store that didn't quite work...I didn't realize one needed a power cord and the other one needed speakers (electronics are NOT my strong point, apparently). So hubby ordered a WORKING, new radio/cd/tape combo. Its actually for my son, I am in the process of setting up a special "listening station" in his room. Not sure if it will stay where it is because he moved his chair to the middle of the room instead of the what I thought was a cozy corner. But he really loves being able to listen to books by himself. Trying to find a replacement for George and Martha by James Marshall. I love the books but I really, really, really can't listen to the entire audiobook again. We can all recite the intro and stories....and can't get it out of our heads! I scored an awesome Time Life CD collection of 100 Classical Masterpieces at the thrift store last night, so hopefully we can listen to that for a while. Here is the Mr. Z below, looking at a Richard Scarry book and listening to George and Martha.

The only Disney show I can stand is Octonauts. Everything else...shudder.
online in my store. (affiliate link). I was really on the fence about wordless picture books, but this one is just so beautiful and interesting, we definitely have our own words for the "story". I really love Alison Jay's crackle varnish art, she uses this style in I Took the Moon for a Walk as well. Wordless books are a great way to engage my son into talking with me. Sharing truth and beauty are a couple of our family goals...so blessed to share beautiful books with the kids!
McNay art museum so I can pick up some more art postcards to make a matching game with. Its really awesome to have a museum with Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet and many others just down the street! Also hoping they have some Van Gogh posters, as we are learning about Van Gogh this week.
Tinkerlab? (This is not an affiliate link). It looks awesome! My fellow San Antonio blogger Stacy over at Kids Stuff World wrote a great review that just sold me.
