Fun inside and outside in the snow.

Lots of fun and variety today inside. Then we got to enjoy some time outside as well, in the snow. A few went sliding, and a few didn’t.

Another great day. Hope you enjoy the photos.

February School Vacation Wednesday 18th 2015

Today was filled with lots of fun. My daughters joined the Daycare for awhile to play games with the kids. My oldest daughter gave airplane rides with her knees and feet. She also did a “hair Salon” and a Disney music dance party.  My younger daughter was a “Teacher” and did really well helping the kids with letters and counting.  She also played barbies and house with the kids for some time. The kids love it when they come down. A variety of toys/items were used, as well, today.  Quite a bit of imaginary play went on.

Another great day. Enjoy the pictures. Some really cute ones.

Trip to the Library and Outside/Snow play

We took a field trip today to the Baxter Memorial Library. It was pretty quiet there so we had the run of the Children’s room.  They all looked at books, played with the babies, trains, block toy and puzzles. They loved the huge dinosaur that is just outside the Children’s room.  JP draw a picture of a rocket ship while we were there.  Little baby JP had his first trip with us and he was in AWWW of the Library. Happy baby. The 2 Toddlers learned how to use the water fountain and then did not want to leave it. When we returned home, we played out in the snow for quite awhile. The kids, with their red checks, still didn’t want to go inside. The older kids went sledding, they even tried to do it on the tiny hill out front. The younger ones and I played (and they even ate) in the snow.

Another great day!! I hope you enjoy the photos and as always feel free to comment.

Making Snow People and snowflakes on a No School snow day

No School today, snow day. Missing three kiddos today. We spent the morning making a few crafts. I say the morning because, the crafts look simple enough, but doing them with 2 one year olds TAKES all morning, haha. They really did great though.  “AB” made a Snowman picture and the younger two made “Snow flakes”. WELL, that was the idea, but the blue paint didn’t work well and neither did trying to position their hands. They were not too happy to have paint on them.  As you can tell from the floor, we had popcorn too.

As always, enjoy the photos and feel free to comment here or on facebook.

Playing out in the snow. A couple times.

A great day for some outside play. It wasn’t too cold for a change. The younger kiddos and I went out earlier in the day, for the first time. Then, once the School kids arrived right back out we went for some more Snow fun. The kids really enjoyed jumping off the table into the snow (not a long drop as you can see) and making snow angles. The younger two walked around together, eating snow, it was so cute.  After all cheeks were starting to get red, mittens wet and toes cold we headed back inside for some warmth and board games. Then it was time to go home.

 

Another great day.  I hope you enjoy the pictures. If you enjoy these posts and pictures, please feel free to comment on this site or on this post on the “Lil’ Caboose Gorham” Facebook page.

Playing in the Snow

We had a great day Friday playing in the Snow.  It was a really nice day so we got to stay out for quite awhile. Of course the baby slept through all the fun.  The others ran around, dug in the sandbox, and even played on the climbers.  When the cheeks got red we headed back inside for “warm” hot cocoa and coloring fun.

Outdoor Playing and sledding Fun

Today was a beautiful day to be outside. So, you will see “A”Smelling deer tracks in the snow. “S” throwing snowballs at me. Lots of sledding, both standing up and sitting down, as well as swinging and just playing in the snow.  Lots of fun had by all. Enjoy the pictures.

Sadly, today is “S”s last day with us.  Her parents had an opputunity they could not pass up. We will miss her.
