Fire ! Fire!
We spent a lot of time outside this afternoon. So much in fact that we decided not to take a nap. Some of your will be yelling for joy for the hopeful early bedtime what will cause. Some of you will be growling at me about 6 when your child starts having a melt down. Each day I try to make decisions based on ” what is best for the kids.” It was So beautiful outside and I was having such a good time listening to their conversations and watching them play that I just couldn’t bust up the party. Rarely do I get to go outside, Bethany and Randy do that while I do inside group time but today Randy was sick so it was just Bethany and I. ( Yes.. if you follow me on FB you know that I was not feeling well either, right ? Women are SO much tougher than men. 🙂 I said this morning that Randy’s illness was not contagious but I will reserve that opinion until later tonight. He has been in bed all day. I just have a hurt back and an eye that is not cooperating . ( Swelling and Red. I can’t wear makeup so I look a lot worse than I am.)
One of the activities we did was balance and walk different ways on a ladder like a fireman does. The kids were great !
William called the fire station on his radio to tell them the house was on fire !
We practices STOP DROP AND ROLL ! Kids remember – COVER YOUR EYES !
We played in shaving cream and dropped drops of red and yellow food coloring . Guess what happened? It turned ORANGE. After mixing the colors we practiced writing an F in the shaving cream. Fire starts with F.
I think ( I hope ) I have the pictures figured out . Now, if I can just figure out how to put the text between each picture explaining what is going on… that would be great!
I took over 70 pictures today. You can find them on an album on my FB.
