Kindergarten Day 11
Princess and I headed outside to play in the yard before the
cold rainy weather appeared. It was surprisingly warm.
We played on the swings and walked around looking for
anything still flowering and watched the chipmunks run around
then we came inside for some lunch and some art.
We read our book on Frida,
and Princess painted some paintings in a "similar" style.
She did not want me to photograph her finished pieces,
so I only have a shot of the beginning of one.
After she was done, she needed a bath, so we brought out the
bath paints and shaving cream and she painted in the tub.
She had such a good time, she wanted to make more art when
she got out, but decided to move on to collage work instead of paints.
I keep a plastic baggies filled with scraps (fabric,feathers,sequins,buttons etc)
that she can glue to paper or containers from the recycling bin.
We read some more and she decided she wanted "school work",
so we headed out to our "school room" and she matched her alphabet blocks to some
"flash card" type cards with words on them.We listened to some Halloween music
and read stories as well. Farmer Dad brought her outside to play some more while I showered
when he got home from work and then we played on the porch until it was time to make dinner.
Princess loves to set the table and help with dinner prep. Last night she helped make the salad.
We have taken to dimming the dining room light and lighting candles (like in a restaurant) while we eat.
After we were done, they played piano together and I went to the library.
I picked up some great books that I will blog about on Monday!
I came home to find them watching a Rutgers Football game on tv and we all watched while reading,
snacking and coloring for the rest of the night.Now I need to go wake her up so we can play Candyland
as promised before breakfast.
Have a good day!!
