We took a trip to the fair in Waterville yesterday morning. TongJie traveled in style in the wagon. I think it was a little overwhelming for him, especially in the animal barns where it was crowded and noisy, plus many of the animals were big and he'd never seen them before. There was a model train exhibit that seemed to be his favorite. It was in a nice, quiet room with very few people, and TongJie was happy to watch the trains go by again and again, waving as they passed. I have been woefully delinquent at taking pictures, and the one picture I took while we were at the fair didn't turn out very good.
On the way home from Waterville, TongJie kept busy in the car with his new yard sale find. We call it his "laptop." Looks like a pretty sophisticated piece of machinery, doesn't it?
Finally, here is a video of TongJie cleaning up this morning before church. He had been picking up his toys and signing "clean," and then I got out the flip cam and was able to capture a little bit of it before he started whining to be picked up. Unfortunately, I was talking over him saying "all done," but you can still see him doing the sign for all done as he says "ah ah," and then he signs "clean." He does the signs fast, so you might not know he was even signing if you didn't know to look for it, but he definitely knows what he's doing. He has been doing so well with signing. I'm trying to get more videos of him signing, but once he sees the camera out, he usually loses focus on whatever he was doing.
