On a thrilling visit to the playground, Sibyl showed her mom just how high she swings when Pop is pushing.


Then she took a page out of Edmund Hillary's playbook.

Happy Thanksgiving

Turkey art from school (mixed media: paint, feathers, and googly eye on the back of a paper plate):

Little Pollock

Another week, another artistic style.


In case the Sibylese isn't coming through, the song she's chanting goes like this:

Five little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor, and the doctor said
No more monkeys jumping on the bed

Four little monkeys...

And here's the resulting artwork:

Look, Ma, No Sleeves

Sibyl headed for the Randall Museum this afternoon, probably one of the fall's last warm, sunny days.

Elephants and Camels

Yesterday Sibyl (and her mom and pop) visited the Oakland Zoo to meet up with her friend Dahlia (and Dahlia's dad, Colin) and to see her first live elephants and camels.

Eating Alfresco

Pop took Sibyl outside to eat alfresco, just like Fancy Nancy.

Bounce Party

As if Halloween weren't enough fun for a weekend, Sibyl also went to a grown-up party, complete with a big backyard to explore (full of sticks and rocks), cool people to talk to, and a kitten mask to model.

The birthday girl (Sibyl's mom's friend Carrie) had even set up a giant bouncy house, which Sibyl tried with her mom and Auntie Karen.
