Princess and I had a lot of fun this week, in between getting ready for Halloween
and having Little Man here, we actually got some school done.
I didn't take many pictures of it, but it did happen.
We read many books, listened to Rabbit Hill on cd during snack time.
We cooked together (which is both a life skill and a math lesson),
we painted and drew,
and colored and made patterns and counted
and practiced her scissor skills and her penmanship.
We did crafts and played with dolls, the play kitchen,blocks,puzzles
and felt boards. We made up songs and games and told each other silly stories.
We learned a bit about the Statue of Liberty (Sunday was Statue of Liberty day).
We learned a bit about pet care and cats in particular.Princess has been very good at
feeding and changing the water for the cats this week. She even swept up the spilled
crunchies on the feeding mat.She learned to be a bit more patient thanks to Little Man being around,
she is enjoying her "part time" sibling for the time being and is much less resentful than I thought she would be.
We did some interesting "floating" experiments in the bathtub.
Today we are supposed to have our Science Playgroup, but the Mom who runs it has been
under the weather, so it may be postponed. We hope she is feeling better and I know
Princess misses seeing the girls. We are also going to try to meet up with one of Princess's
favorite boys and his Mom a bit later on. She is really looking forward to that as well.
Did I mention Farmer Dad took a vacation day today? He is insulating the porch/schoolroom
windows right now.It has become quite cold here at night, although it was beautiful on Halloween.
