Well it has been a crazy month. With selling our house, trying to find a new place to live, and getting ready for #2 Tot School has taken a little bit of a back burner. We have done some things here and there but it hasn't been as structured as I would have liked.
His favorite books continue to be Naptime Kitty during the day and Goodnight Moon at bedtime. S spends a large portion of his day playing with his Legos. If his towers fall apart he never gets angry he just sits down and begins building a new one.
Somedays if we haven't gotten to any Tot School activities he will go in the closet and choose an activity himself, which usually ends up being crayons and a piece a paper to draw on.
Here are a few of the activities we have done in the last few weeks. I haven't taken many pictures since the camera is all set up to go to the hospital with us.
S is placing glitter balls on the circles while saying the letter L. We also collected leaves outside and used them to make imprints on Play-doh.
Of course the dot paints are still a huge hit in this household. But I have to watch S closely because once he finishes filling in all the empty dots he starts to dot his arms.
I had some whole wheat spaghetti in the closet (which I was looking to get rid of because it tasted gross) and I let S put them through the holes of the strainer. But alot of the pieces ended up on the floor.
Luckily we had a little helper to spread them all over the floor with his paws.
I have never made caramel apples before so I though this would be a fun cooking project for S and I. I had gotten the wrong caramel product to do this so Nathan was nice enough to go to the store and pick out caramel. I also got out what remained of our sprinkle collection for decorations. Let' just say there were NO sprinkles left when we were done. S had a blast decorating them.
In mid-October we went to Barthel's Fruit Farm to pick apples and pumpkins. It was unusually hot and S was NOT happy that day so unfortunately we didn't get many good pictures. Hopefully pumpkin carving/painting goes better. :)
