A Little Totschool Report

Delaney lights up at the chance to "do school" in the school room.  She is only with the big kids and I in the morning and then she heads for a nap after lunch while we work on project time.

These baskets of fruits and veggies are a staple in our tot school day... we play "what's hiding under the basket... sort colors and feed various dolls and stuffed animals.

A little magic coloring... no mess but lots of fun and fine motor skill development.

We went on a field trip to the museum and participated in cave drawing.  By the end and with the addition of red paint Delaney's cave drawing looked like a record of a massacre.

Gymnastics has been a super fun activity for Delaney... she loves being in the class with her friends... and not gonna lie her Minnie Mouse legging are a definite attraction for her.

Monsters!  Delaney loves monsters... She often wants to be called the Gruffalaney and asks if I can see her knobboly knees.  So crafting her own monster was quite thrilling.

What are your tots up to?

A Change in Routine...


I am changing up our routine a bit here... this past year we have been schooling in the afternoon while Delaney is napping... It wasn't the best... it limited our work time too much and I was stressed out if all of the writing tools were not put away before my little tornado woke up.

So even though it's still technically summer around here I am doing a trial run of the big kids doing language arts and math after breakfast while Delaney has some school time with mommy... When they are done it's free time until lunch... then after lunch when Delaney goes to bed it's time for silent reading and whatever project we happen to be working on at the moment.

First day went well...

What We Sent Our Compassion Kids... July

This month we had a lot of fun putting together some paperbag puppets  with printables from Yellow Bliss Road.

Since we recently celebrated Canada Day, we included these stickers and postcards in our package.
I wrote a little note on the back of the postcards...

Do you sponsor a Compassion child?  What do you send?
