Where care is most like home.

No School/Pajama Day

 

No school day, rainy weather= PAJAMA DAY!!

We had lots of fun in the Playroom. The kids even brought the color rice back out, which I had not seen recently.  My two toddlers even appeared to be showing me that they missed the old bumbo seats.   Another great day..

Fun, even on a rainy day!!

This rain has been crazy! But we always find lots of fun inside to do.  The play room has been used more this week alone, then it has in the past several months. The two toddlers appear to have picked up on the “Letter” books.  Advanced? I think so, haha.  There was lots of kitchen play, and weeble playing too. My female toddler has picked up a new fun thing. She drags the chairs from one side of the room to the other, plays with them and moves them back.  The older and younger kids also had  lots of Barbie play.  My littlest one did what most little ones do all day. I did some tummy time with him and some reaching exercises.

What a nice day to be outside. It was a bit chilly at first, then got really nice. Gave us plenty of time to do a lot of activities.  The two little ones “shared” many toys, like the Cozy Coupe, the slide, the tunnel etc.  Big brother took his little brother for a walk down the driveway, which he loved doing. He also practiced his horseshoe toss. The younger kids practiced their ring toss (or placing the rings on the poles). When the older kids arrived off the bus there was some sandbox play and then my daughter taught them some Soccer moves. Of course kicking the ball was the favorite part, but goalie was a close second.  They even had their own cheering section, until she got too occupied with her apple.  I have a ride on snail, but one of my little ones decided she wanted to carry it around the yard instead.  One of my other litle ones prefered to play with the wood chips under the slide/swings.  We even fit in a wildness walk.

Apple Picking Field Trip

Late posting.  Friday was such a beautiful day.  My children had off from school and so did a few Daycare children. It was suggested that we go Apple picking. So we loaded up and headed to the Orchard. We must have been there a total of 2 hours picking apples, running around and sitting on the wooden swing.  It was a great day!  Enjoy the few pictures I took, had to use my phone, forgot my camera.

Fort Williams #2

The weather wasn’t hot today, and no rain.  I asked what the kids wanted to do for a field trip before they go back to School next week.  They wanted to go back to Fort Willims, so off we went. The Daycare kiddos, my daughters, as well as an old Daycare child and his Mom, my friend after ALL these years.. The kids really enjoyed going in the forts and learning more about them.  I, myself, was saddened by the disrespect that has been shown to these landmarks.  The two older girls found some sea “Prizes” to bring home. The littlest two played and snuggled together.  My littlest girl was very interested in what was inside the forts, until she got to a dark opening and just stopped..  We got our workouts climbing those hills, especially me since the two little ones would have taken A LOT longer to make it up those hills walking, haha.  I hope you enjoy the photos and as always feel free to leave feedback.

Field Trip to Sebago Lake

I had an extra small group on Wednesday. Some parents are dong last minute Summer activities with their children, which is wonderful.  So we headed to Sebago Lake State Park for the day. Two of my children went with us as well.  It was a lot of fun, the water was nice, built in the sand, THEN, the Yellow Jackets came out again, just like the prior day at Nason’s beach.  We avoided them as long as we could by staying in the water and putting all food back in the Vehicle.  By 2:45 everyone was getting tred.  So, we headed back to Daycare for some more outdoor fun.
