Play-Doh and Crayons

I've seen a marked improvement of Hers Truly with play-doh and crayons recently.

Hers Truly has gone from making wild circles for circles to more constrained circles. She is definitely gaining muscle control and perception control of what a circle is.

She has also gotten better at making things with play-doh. Items are still rendered in that childhood primitive style, but they are clearly representative, rather than just lumpy. I made a fire engine, and she volunteered to make wheels, and made acceptable wheels. She has gained some brain hardware connected to construction where she did not have that just a few months ago.

Hers Truly is always gaining new jobs. Over the summer, I asked her to set the table once, and that meant it was her job forever. So, she sets the table, as unpredictable as that is. The downside of this job acquirement is that she adopts jobs which aren't hers at all. Mom will turn on the bathroom light for herself.

The tomato crop is now coming in. Once again, tomatoes have been very good to us. Jenny collected sees last year that worked well in the yard, and they certainly have worked well.
