Summer Drags On

We are all ready for the summer heat to be over at our house! To keep our S.R.P. bill down we cool the house down to 83 degrees until exactly 1pm (when the electricity gets expensive) then we turn the thermostat up to 87 degrees until we can turn it down again at 8pm. I like to take Claire shopping in the afternoon to get out of the hot house. The rest of the day we try to keep busy.
The stroller has cured boredom for us many days.

We also painted Claire's toes recently. She likes her pretty toes.

Most of our days though are spent dancing. Claire especially loves dancing to her VBS music. We have a few other cd's with songs for toddlers but I can only take so much of....

"Polly put the kettle on, Polly put the kettle one,

Polly put the kettle on, we'll all have tea"

Suki take it off again, Suki take it off again,

Suki take it off again, they've all gone away"

What does that even mean? What a pointless song! There are several songs that talk about death, sickness, mourning, killing roosters and thowing old men downstairs for not saying their prayers. I don't get it. My favorite is this one.

Go tell Aunt Rhodi, her old gray goose is dead, (repeat each line 3 times)

She died last Friday, standing on her head. (am I missing something? Is this a common way for geese to die)

The gander is mourning because his wife is dead. (The death march plays in the background)

The gosselings are weeping because their mothers dead.

Anyway, here is a video of Claire dancing to her happy and non-depressing VBS music.
