Chipmunks, chocolate

The Bug was quite excited to find out that there's a chipmunk hanging out in our backyard. She enjoys old Chip & Dale cartoons and often pretends that she IS a chipmunk.
Tonight we finished reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I hadn't read it since 6th or 7th grade, I suppose. I've seen both movies numerous times (Bug has seen the firist one 1 time...months ago...and hums the Oompa Loompa songs often) and it was interesting to see what each movie used, didn't use or added from the book.
I still think we'll go with Stuart Little next...I'll see what Bug thinks about that.
We found a microscope at Sally's today...woo! Bug gets to try that out tomorrow. She wants to see germs. Hopefully she'll settle for the fruit fly that's on one of the prepared slides that came with it.

Staying cool...

Well, we're in the midst of quite a heat wave right now. We're hanging out in the Bug's room quite a bit because that's where the air conditioner is. We've been reading a lot...we finished Charlotte's Web (Bug still doesn't like spiders, but loves to look at webs) and The Mouse and the Motorcycle. We just started Charlie and the Chocolate Factory yesterday. I think Stuart Little may be next...we'll see.
We spent a wonderful day in Stockholm WI on Saturday. It was their annual art fair. We mostly stayed on the hay bale seats under the tent and took in all the music. It was a bit cooler there. Bug got to play on the merry go round, swings and a bouncy chipmunk. Great fun.
