wednesday windows #2.

the second installment of wednesday windows.

i took this picture through my windshield (fear not, i was stopped at a light). since childhood i have coveted the original VW beetles. i still harbor fantasies that i will one day own one of these babies. the one in the picture is a bit dilapidated, but here on the streets of miami it is rare to find such a gem amongst all the hummers and lamborghinis.

i spend approximately 1,000 hours a year holed up with small children, so it is probably no surprise that on the days recess is rained out, i am just as saddened as the kids. over the years i have come up with some creative ways to keep the kids entertained without causing me to lose my sanity, but today's inspiration was the best ever. i dumped a box of mini-blocks on the carpet, paired up the kids, and gave them one minute to make a tower. tallest tower got a point. and then we did it again. and again. and again. instant hit. clearly we know what will be happening in my room the next time it rains on our recess.

  1. My first car was a Green VW Beetle. Loved it! Had to get rid of it when I had Stephanie--not exactly the car you want to be in with a baby, especially when you are rear ended on a freeway ramp with baby in the back seat..ouch!

  2. this is exactly why i dont have an original beetle...my practical side, which requires modern safety apparatuses, overrules my fantasy side. oh well. some day when i live in a tiny hamlet where speeds never exceed 25 mph, i will own one of these darling cars. :)
