A Few Big Things for Little People




This week, we've had some baby step milestones.  Pumpkin has started counting everything in her sight, and her ability to count with correct one-to-one correspondence is increasing daily.  She loves the Spindle Boxes!  Also, she just started drawing people.  It's her favorite art experience.

Bean is into colors.  Grading colors, creating colors, and mixing colors.  She can't get enough, and we are running with it!

Peanut is into self-care.  This week she jumped up and down in celebration..........she can button her own coat!!

Flower Arranging, Spring Is Coming!

This weekend I took the kids to a craft store to choose some silk flowers. They picked a great variety, so we will out out new flowers often. In New England, the sure way to see Spring is a search for daffodils. Once they pop up on Cape Cod, summer is on the way! We had a great time decorating our room with flowers. All you need is some flowers (silk until we grow some) and child-safe vases!

Signs Of Spring




We've been lucky, last weekend was very warm and we spent hours outside. Every time we found a sign of Spring's arrival, Bean wanted a picture. I must have taken 20 photos of grass! We haven't seen much grass this winter :)

We found our old Halloween pumpkin, all hollowed out from time. It was amazing how it kept its shape. We found some leaves coming up through the dry leaves. And our favorite, chalk drawings on our boulder and rocks!

Collage and Work (while Mommy rests on the couch with strep)







Well, aren't we so independent? I took a few pics of their art before laying down. When they were done, I took a photo of the room all cleaned up by my three gals. I'm proud seeing them be so able without my help!
