Our summer schedule has been so haphazard thanks to a 2 week trip, involving 3000 miles of driving,
|This is how we eat dinner on the road...|
|They were fantastic travelers!|
|Sunrise over Lake Monroe|
|We had a lot of fun trying to spot alligators in the lake|
|Sunrise walk (A "Day walk" as the kids call it) on the board walk by Lake Monroe|
|You can often find me in bed or curled up on the couch with some stuffed animal that Pip felt Ziggy needed to have close..|
|"I don't really know how to get the car to jump, I'm still working on that..."|
|Building ramps for their car with scrap wood|
|I love 3 year old's...I find things like this a lot!|
|5 year old knee art, or should I say scab art? The eyes there are scabs. Some times the messes stay...contained.|
|Dress up play...Apparently being 7 means you make pathetic faces when being photographed (she was grinning 2 seconds later, stinker).|
|This is my favorite, they played for over an hour and a half under these trees|
|Same day same place, this literally turned into a circus show, with chalk tight ropes and clowns arguing over where their tight ropes were....They've never been to a circus, so it got a bit irrational. A good time was had by all, until it wasn't. :D|
|This is is her T-TAPP Bal-la-lette dance sheet. It's a game she created. You tap a color and do a ballet move...I think.|
On days I have energy or they ask to "do school" (usually this is Friendly asking) we pull out work sheets on a concept we came across and I realized they weren't familiar with it (Oh, some free work sheet links in my next post!).
Some times it means a chapter or two of our math book (Life of Fred), some times it means we take a stack of picture books to the park and a "picnic" snack and we enjoy our books together.
We're also doing a Family Summer reading club...
For every book they read to me or Hubby Joy they get a sticker on the chart. For every chapter book we finish together they get a sticker on the chart. We have about 10 stickers now (this was taken shortly after we started). When we complete the chart (hoping to before the baby arrives) they win a new Lego set or an ice cream party...or some thing! Maybe both?
|Hey, we're having a baby we're going to celebrate books and babies! :D|
