Fortunately and unfortunately I have a couple of kids headed to kindergarten in the fall of this year. It makes me both sad and proud but it also makes me feel as if I have some sort of responsibility to do my part in helping prepare them as much as I can. This should be a fun book to help with that and I love that Miss Bindergarten is a border collie like Katie Bug whom they know very well.
Spring is upon us and if the weather will ever clear up enough for us to take a good walk when they are all here we will have a discovery stroll looking around us to finds signs of spring right around us.
We are still stuck on Mo Willems. I try to include one at least one book of his every week. They are easy to find a good coloring page online and the books makes the kids laugh which I adore both.
We have been eating healthier and cutting out sweets whenever we can here at the day care. Shaun couldn't believe, when he was here during snack time the other day, that the kids were asking for more cut carrots. It's funny that the foods they at one time turned their noses up to are now their favorites. I hope even if they choose a junk food path for themselves that they always remember the healthy stuff too. I am excited to read The Food Parade and plan to maybe have coloring pages of different foods to have our own food parade.
Lego DC on dvd. This is for the older boys. As much as I try to keep their minds off of weapons and violence... they are still boys (as Shaun pointed out to me). I have one day a week where I only have the older boys and I reckon this will be the day next week that I allow them to watch a movie like this. They have all seen it before but will love seeing it again. I like to make the day with the bigger kids special and still let them be who they are.
Looks like it's going to be an exciting week here next week!
Especially when Mrs Laurie comes up with activities to go along with these books!
I'd better get to work!
