Welcome back and Happy New Year.
If only there were captions...
*Elvis cuts a piece of cardboard into tiny pieces. That's a lot of work!
*I'd say they are as good as they look.
*Elvis and I whip up a batch of banana nut muffins.
*Elvis beats me fair and square.
*Elvis loses a game of Sequence For Kids and declares it a bad game. And admits that if he had won, he would think it were a good game...
*We make a 'tornado' which requires some experience and finesse to get spinning, and Elvis is very persistent at trying until he gets it.
*Game on. Elvis tries to hit me. I try to hit Elvis. We both get a lot of exercise throwing things up and down the loft.
*Elvis makes himself dumbbells.
*Playdoh for all. Eliana is looking more and more like a preschooler.
*Lunch back at the circle table. It's a bit of a challenge to keep them all at the table, but once someone is done, everyone else is likely to abandon lunch...
*And that is all that is left of all four pumpkins.
*When we come in from outside time, it's drawing-at-the-table time. Good practice for The Future...
*Elvis asks me to dump a whole bucket of water down and enjoys the wave of destruction.
*On our way to inspect our little pumpkin experiment...
*Elvis lets the wind blow the bubbles.
*Rowan tries the trike Elvis likes and has come to think of as 'his'. I assure him it's not.
*Scarlett pushes Erik along. Elvis's intentions are dubious...
*Then it's Elvis's turn to push the girls (Erik hops on for about 2 seconds, but isn't sure about this swing).
*Tradition: group swing to an alphabet song.
*Not sure why his head is cut off, but that's Erik creating a great big pile of soft things to slide into. He has mastered ascending and descending.
*bathroom break/fish watching
*loft story (we abort after a few pages cuz it just ain't happening!)
*butterfly shadow art project. They are all engaged.
*we snack at the art table, practicing for tomorrow when we are joined by Jonah and Winry. We'll no longer fit at the circle table.
*Elvis and Scarlett rock Dance for the Sun while Erik runs around in circles and Rowan watches from the couch.
*We start circle with a Mo Willems story. Rowan and Elvis stay to the end...
*impromptu dance party!
*I'm very happy with the amount of seeds spilled today!
