Investing In Your Children Project #1

Here's lookin' at you, kid!

Playdoh!!! It's actually much more enjoyable now for my kiddos to play with Playdoh because my daughter has greatly decreased her Playdoh consumption. Yes, she's a Playdoh eater.

What fun they had when I pulled down the picnic basket and let them have at it. They had a picnic in the living room, the kitchen and at the dining room table. My son decided to go shirtless for the remainder of the evening after he spilled milk down the front of his shirt.

I LOVE Target's $1.00 section. My kiddos were so excited to get a pair of sunglasses each.

My little fashionista couldn't stop modeling hers.

Here she is today in one of the cutest poses ever! Despite being a very cloudy day, both kiddos insisted on wearing their sunglasses to grandpa's house.
Ok, nothing to do with my kids, unless you count the one in my tummy. I've been having such a craving for a non-alcoholic mixed drink. So I made a raspberry lemonade iced tea. In my juicer (that a dear friend lent to me for the duration of my pregnancy) I blended frozen raspberries, sweetened green tea, freshly squeezed lemon juice and water. It really hit the spot!

Back to my kiddos now....It's amazing how a bit of masking tape can inspire a child's imagination!

Now for a bit of big boy hands-on work. He helped me replace the brush and belt in the vacuum.

Then, we worked on painting the wood pieces to make a shelf for his room.

Afterwards was some homeschooling. We're on the letter N, so his art project was to glue a nest.

I never did get a picture of my daughter helping me make oatmeal cookies. She was my official dry ingredient pourer, mixer and taste tester!

I love the letter "N" nest idea! Great way to incorporate visual and phonetic learning! :)
