To help answer the question, "How many more days until Magaw & Grandpa are here?" we made a prop for his room. Hubby graduates the first weekend in May and they are coming to celebrate. Truth be told, they will probably celebrate the grandson more than graduation. :)
The prop was perfectly Montessori...counting to 22 and alternating a pattern of yellow, red, blue. Below is a video display of his excitement. He's saying, "Come on Grandpa - Come on Magaw!" Tonight he ripped off balloon #22, for tomorrow will be 21 days until their arrival.
