I'm not tired

After Gymnastics

Me: Maeson, why don't you go lay down and rest
Maeson: I'm not tired, I want to color

5 minutes later
Den'ja: Mama, Maeson is sleeping

When the kids learned about the letter "I" in preschool, teacher Heidi showed them some instruments and said something along the lines of, "I just made these with stuff I had at my house, you could make some when you get home" and of course they remembered this. We grabbed some paper plates, poured some macaroni in them and stapled it up. Then the kids decorated their instruments. They had lots of fun and played with them for lots longer then I thought they would. It's the little things.

Ah, the memories!

I used to love playing with these things when I was younger. We borrowed them from my mom's house and the kids and I had a great time building roads, train tracks, houses, and farms.

Joe and I read to the kids every night and have been thrilled lately that they are choosing to read books that we actually had read to us as children. Some current favorites are "The Monster at the end of this book" and "Rocks in my Socks" it's so fun to see them enjoying books that we enjoyed too and we are so glad that we are able to share them with them!
