We’ve been a little busy off and on over the past few days.
Monday we did more crafting. Nakiah was very excited that she can cut paper into the cresses shape like the moon
Ava is still getting the hang on the scissors. We’ve tried several pairs.
I started cutting shapes out for her to glue to the paper. She was so proud to use the glue by herself like a big girl.
Here are a few finished projects from the weekend.
We’ve got Ava’s Easter eggs, Nakiah’s happy face, and Daddy contributed with his man and house.
Tuesday afternoon they matched up some of their Diego cards.
Lego’s after bathtime Tuesday evening. We also watched the Mammals segment from Life on the Discovery Channel. I’ve recorded all four episodes, and it’s so interesting to watch.
Mama watched LOST after the youngest was in bed. Do you know that is the greatest show on TV right now, and it has been since it aired in 2004?
Wednesday we went for a nice long walk around the neighborhood.
It’s much easier for me to walk at their pace now that I’m eight months pregnant!
For city living we found some pretty interesting flowers, bushes and leaves.
Stopping to pick up the white fuzzies along the way. It’s fun when we find a patch that has like 20 of them.
We also stopped to pick up pinecones, rocks and sticks. It’s a good thing Nakiah decided to bring her doll stroller. That’s where we kept all of our goodies.
I don’t think we’ve ever been out for a walk and came back home empty handed.
Isn’t this beautiful? Ava wouldn’t touch it. She said the leaves are not green mommy.
Then we came upon this beautiful tree. The girls kept asking me to pick them up so they could touch it, but it was way out of my reach. So we settled on admiring it from the ground.
Then we found a worm. Nakiah had no problem picking it up to explore it.
I was amazed when Ava asked to see the worm. She usually asks to hold whatever bug it is that Nakiah has, but then moves her hand as Nakiah is handing it to her.
They put the worm back down in the grass so it could hopefully go back underground.
We ran into Daddy on our walk back, and stopped at the park for a bit. They played in the sand and water. Nakiah drew some letters and a picture for us.
Early this morning Nakiah made me a letter pie
We had tower building.
Yogurt and a Cars game on the Vsmile
Later in the afternoon we went out for a shorter walk. Well, I walked and the rode on their tricycles.
Noticed more flowers.
Came home, ate, heard the ice cream truck. He didn’t come yesterday. The girls had been asking since this morning if the ice cream truck would come today. I prayed that he would.
We were going to make some puppets out of our popsicle sticks, but the girls asked to paint.
I resized some pf the pics and not others. I think it’s time for a new three column layout.
I’m tired from what we did today. It doesn’t take much to wear me out these days.
Hubby is working late tonight, and I can’t wait for him to get home. Mama needs a break!
