I APOLOGIZE AHEAD OF TIME FOR THE LENGTH OF THIS BLOG. IT WAS JUST SUCH A GREAT DAY.. Another busy day here. JP was a bit late this morning so I worked on letters with K and E. I scrambled up all the letters and the kids had to listen to me (I would say the letter and the color of the letter if needed) and choose the correct letter to create the Alphabet in order. We did this several times, then they each made their name with the letters. We moved over to crafts and made a snowflake out of cotton swaps and glue on blue background paper. Then came our science experiment. Each child started with a bottle of water and a spot of dish detergent. The kids added food coloring and glitter to their bottles and shook them. After the bubbles settled we could see all the different colors of glitter on the sides of the bottles (I think I added a bit too much soap to a bottle or two). THEN came the “Surprise”, we went outside to go sledding down my back hill. The all had a BLAST!! As you will notice in the pictures we had some furry guests outside with us, my dogs. The kids had fun playing with them and you will see that the dogs are waiting by the pic nic table to catch the snow that the girls were throwing to them. When we came back inside the request was made for hot cocoa. JW joined us after school, about Lunch time. After lunch we went to the play room. The kids wanted to show JW “Our Daycare” song, as the kids call it (A fast version of 5 Little Monkeys). So they all danced to that. Then I broke out the puzzles and EVERYONE wanted to do them, I was thrilled.. I was so excited that they all wanted to do them at the same time, and for quite a while too. They did such a great job with them too. Then rest and back outside for more sledding, snowball fighting and snowman building (Camera died). Today was just such an exceptionally great day for me!!!
