March 26th, 2009

Michael had another bloody nose today, minor compared to the waterfalls he had on st. patty's day. Aurora woke up feeling sick today and lounged around the house for the better part of the day. Jennifer had a great day at school, she had a class visitor from the Czech Republic, she made the class some authentic food and Jennifer was really excited about it. I'm looking forward to Friday!! I dread the bus stop in this freezing weather. The kids hate having to stand out in the cold and wait for the bus. My Grandma Thelma will be coming in for a visit, she will stay for a month. She will most likely arrive the first week of April and Stay until the first week of May. Long enough for me to drag her to great escape six flags :) This weekend we have gymnastics, tap and ballet on Saturday, then on Sunday we are heading to church. I convinced Scott to try it once, I really want to go but am just too nervous to do it on my own. Its a really nice christian church with a really good kids program so we are excited. Yesterday I made the girls some purses, I'm re-learning to sew. They are not the best but the girls loved them. I also made a baby quilt its pretty good for a first attempt Scott was impressed. I'm excited to take Michael and Aurora to the tiny tots tea room It looks amazing, they have free play and classes as well. Little chef classes and Etiquette classes. I also love that they have a cafe that serves healthy choices for kids. They are also offering a summer camp for the kids. We are undecided yet though, we are looking into the YMCA summer camp as well.

By the weeks end campers will have completed a self illustrated experiment book to bring home and they will have increased knowledge of how their body performs.

Every child will receive an apron and they will make their own chef’s hat to wear during class and then take them home at the end of the week. This class will broaden taste buds, enhance creativity, encourage socialization and reinforce early math skills.

Week #6 August 17th-August 20th (M-Th)

Week #8 August 31st-September 3rd (M-Th)
Growing School Skills- We saved this theme for the end of summer to prepare your child for “back to school”. Children learn by seeing and doing. This class will provide your preschooler the opportunity to learn how to write their name, sign and sing the alphabet song, learn their colors, shapes, numbers, and various animals. Through circle time, music, different art mediums and centers your child will be exposed to a fun and exciting early education setting where learning and socialization will be fostered in the most nurturing way. Whether you child is starting preschool, nursery school or kindergarten in September, this class is sure to give them a jump-start!

It just looks like an amazing time for the kids. We will have to see though.
That's about it for today :)
