No Problem Man

Today we visited Jamaica using our imaginations and the pictures and artifacts that Randy and I brought back from our trip.   The kids loved the wooden head. Jamiaca is known for it’s wood art.  The head is a little scary but very interesting.  William took it and said ” Hey, this is weird.Are  YOU […]

Finished Faces

Today was a good day.  I love it when I can look around and hear  the hum of children playing.  Sometimes you can almost feel it… like a heart beat.  Does that mean that every day is perfect – ha! No!   But you see… if days were perfect the children wouldn’t have as many […]

Last Day

> The last day and we get to add one more visiting animal to our list of pets brought in by the kids. Kimber and his mommy found this turtle on the road and brought it in the share with us. We did end up sitting him outside . He became a little stinky. 🙂 […]

Want to cluck a little ?

> Some pictures from yesterday when I was being a whine bag and didnt post. 🙂 Cutting lanterns is a great fine motor activity and great for teaching how important it is to listen and follow directions. If you dont stop on the line your lantern gets smaller and smaller. I was really impressed with […]

Books and Rhythm Sticks

> From the block center this morning I heard ” Look Mia we made a community !” Sure enough, I look over there and this is what I see. The girls were so proud of themselves! Other experiences we had today was using our scales to measure things. We used important words like equal and […]

The itsy Bitsy Spider
