So we were SUPPOSED to have our day off from the 4 big kids on Monday but the weather was less than enthusiastic. So we switched our outing days. Which made for a bit of a mad scramble to get things ready Sunday night.
So what to do, what to do? Well… get out and about first off… We took a nice walk down the main road our lane is off of and worked our way through writing down the names of the streets we saw along the way. The boys now know the short hand for Lane, Drive, Road… oh and Emanuel and Trinity showed off their skills at recognizing street signs.
Walking with mini bubble break
Checking out ants
Afterwards we had some celebratory bubbles from a walk well done!
I have to say there are some beautiful flowers out and about now!
The kids called this the caterpillar tree
I just love the colours on these!
Trinity has been hard at work with her new workbooks from Izzy and Henry. She is in love with workbooks… as long as they aren’t too heavy on what she calls the difficult stuff.
Diving head on
Such lovely colouring on her dot to dot
Our Mother’s day book for the day was No Time For Mother’s Day by Laurie Halse Anderson. I had each of the kids make a mini Mother’s Day card just like they did in class in the book.
Mother’s Day cards
I was showing the boys some handwriting as an introduction of something we plan on covering in the fall. Gavin took initiative and copied his name from what I had shown him.
Leave it up to Echo to add some cuteness to our day as well!
Attempting a summersault
So Tuesday was our one kid extravaganza… first a visit with Bree (Echo’s Godmommy don’t you know?) at her work – Caribou Coffee…
With her Godmommy
Such a big girl
Then the traditional groping of the yarn at JoAnn’s… where Echo found an adorable headband!
Checking out the sunroof in Nana and Baba’s car
The headband… not bad for a dollar
We went to the nearby mall to make use of a Victoria’s Secret freebie coupon and wandered around letting Echo see what caught her fancy. Late lunch at Zantigo and we were well relaxed and pleased with our day, making it home well before our 4pm curfew. The other 4 had a grand time at the zoo with Nana and Baba, seeing critters and having a picnic!
It was nice
Enjoy the pictures! I actually had the chance to wear my special dress that I bought way back when with my Christmas funds!
I need to do some rather more posed images
Me and my Baby
Just us girls… note the lovely RED lippy! Thanks for the help on that one Bree!!
Just need to learn how to make Victory Rolls!
