Where care is most like home.


Tuesday was the First day of school for my second Graders, Kindergartener and my pre- schoolers. I did my normal first day of school pictures and getting on the bus. It actually went very well. Once they were on the bus it was time to start our new pre-school Curriculum. This is specific for 2 year olds. We concentrate on certain letters, numbers and Color per month. September is A,B & C. 0 & 1. And the color BLUE. First day we went over a “Friendship Wreath”. It lists five toddler activities they can practice to be a good friend (sharing/hugs etc). Then the next step was to color in the hands that made the wreath, using many different colors. Also they did free coloring. As you know, we continue to learn throughout the day. Next was playing. Then our normal days routines. Later in the day, we waited for the other kiddos to return back from school on the bus. Then the tents came out and everyone played in those.

Another great day at Lil’ Caboose. Enjoy the pictures.

A day at the Library

I wasn’t able to post our trip to the Library the day we went. I am still trying to figure out photos on my phone.  But here they are.  Enjoy!

I had fewer children today so they could all fit in my SUV.  So, we loaded up the car and headed to Kawanis Lake.  We only spent a couple hours and headed back for rest time then outside play.

Today was so hot, like it has been the past few days. We had a picnic at lunch, sandbox, pool, playing house and using the little house as a take-out window.  Then, of coarse there was the Thunder Storm that rolled in that sent us inside.

Hope you enjoy the photos.

Today we celebrated the Pre School Graduation of two of my little ones who will be starting school in the fall, BC and JP. I could not be more proud of them.  They were both excited and proud of themselves. Both boys especially liked the attention and applause they received as they were presented with their certificates.

After the ceremony there was pool play, playing house, playing and cleaning out the sandbox and much more.

I hope you enjoy the photos, feel free to comment. (I do not know why some of the individual pictures came out lighter then the others)

Welcome back.

Today is our first day back from Vacation. Everyone was so happy when they got here. A week is a long time to a little one.

The pictures posted here are from the day BEFORE Vacation started. I never got a chance to post them before I flew out, but here they are. Happy, happy kids in the pool. (excuse the sideways photos, my daughter was playing around). AND you will actually see something you do not often see, ME in some of the photos. Haha

I purchased three of these great signs, although not cheap, and spread them out on my street as you head toward my house. Everyone can see these and I think they are very important to have. These are to protect your children. Unfortunatly, someone decided to steal the one that was right as you come around the first corner.  Here I am trying to make our neighborhood more safe and a theif would rather put all the kids at risk. This makes me so angry and sad too.

These picture were taken on Thursday, but as always, I took to many and had to go through them to reduce them. As you can see there was lots of swimming, which the kids were thrilled with. They were beyond excited when I took the pool out of the box and blew it up. They also played in the bounce house as well as the Sandboxes. My littlest was awake in the carriage one minute and literally one minute later he was sound asleep. Then I had a little one that decided it was winter I guess and changed his Summer cap for a Winter hat. My other little one found some black shoes and insisted that she climb the slide with them on.  And everyone loved the Guinea Pig. Just an all around great day.

Another awesome day at Lil’ Caboose. Enjoy the pictures.
