Today we spent welcoming the most recent member to our Lil’ Caboose family. He is 4 years old with lots of energy and curiosity, he will be with me 5 days a week. His photos will not be appearing on the BLOG. So, again, we did a lot around our new child, getting him used to where things are located, a fire drill, he selected his chair for snacks and lunch etc. Then was craft time. We did painting, lots of crafts, even dancing, then fun play in the Daycare room. Then played outside, until the rain hit. He was here yesterday as well, so he got very familiar with our “Play ground” as he calls it, because we were outside all day, and he had a great day, both days. And today he had a friend here to play with. “K” was here and the baby. “K” was a good friend and showed him the “Ropes” and what she likes to play with. She is always a big help with the baby too. (As a side note, my 12 year old daughter took the craft pictures for me today). After the school kids arrived there was “Princess” play, dancing, and trampoline. “A” even showed off what a wonderful craft she created at School. “J” and “A” played frozen, their newest imaginary play. It is great to watch them have so much fun. Another great day!! Enjoy the pictures.
Welcome “JP” My 3 this morning
Today we did not work in “K”s workbook (not that we do every day anyway) but I decided to take her and the baby to the Baxter Memorial Library for Pre school reading and activities. Both kids had lots of fun. The baby crawled everywhere and “K” participated in the reading, singing, body movement and craft with the other Pre School children that are brought there. She really worked on her Social skills, which is very important at her age, as all or most of you know. Today’s books were about Lions, so the craft was a Lion hand puppet. We also played with some toys, read some books ourselves and played with the dolls (babies). And, today was a special treat, they had a sort of scavenger treat. You had to find the poster 1 – 12 and do what the poster said on it. For example, “Roar as loud as you can”, “Stretch on your tippie toes and stretch, but do not fall over”, “Find the Lion’s paw prints”, “Find certain books and dust them”and so on. When we arrived back at Daycare we played outside for a bit. The fresh air was good and it really didn’t feel that cold out. When “J” and “A” arrived from school we had some more fun in the playroom. They were princesses, cooks, readers, spinners and more. Another great day! Enjoy the pictures.
Just two here after the bus his morning. “K” continued in her workbook. She completed yet another section, Numbers, and got her Certificate. She wanted to feed the baby, and she did a great job. They are really good together, “K” is a huge helper and she really enjoys it. For a craft “K” painted the rim of a paper plate Green (I cut out the middle) and I printed off a Shamrock. Once the paint had dried, we attached the shamrock to the rim with hot glue and a popsicle stick to make a hat. While we played in the Daycare room, “K” fed our pet fish (2), we did some reading, music and rearranging. You will see her doing “head, shoulders, knees and toes”. She really loves the 1×1 time. We had a lot of fun with lunch. “K” mixed up some eggs and some pancakes, but then she added the secret ingredient for St. Patrick’d day, green food coloring. She kept telling me how delicious they were, even green. Once “J” and “A” arrived after school (“L” was sick) there was even more playing in the Daycare room. They used baby dolls, Kitchen, blocks, puzzles and so much more. I am adding some new electronics, so there will be some more rearranging.. Enjoy the photos. Sorry for the blurry ones, still haven’t gotten a new lens.
On a separate note: We will be having a 4 year old boy joining us, Full-time, in a few weeks. “K” is very excited, as am I. His new Brother or Sister will join us in the Fall.
