This morning the kids opened up shop with an animal hospital.They love pretend and dramatic play. They had a waiting room, and the doctors were really nice. Poor monkey had shoved something up his nose so Doc Lou had to do a procedure that looked way more painful than it actually was. If your stuffed animal needs a little TLC, I would totally recomend these kids!
Cowboys Trays today
First tray he wanted to do was push the Pom Poms in the Butter Dish. A lot of things for tot trays you can just find around your house. I got an old butter container and cut holes in the top to practice fine motor skills by pushing the pompoms through the holes. Although I did have to make minor adjustments once we got to school because I had made the holes way too small and he wasn't getting anything through them. He enjoyed doing this one. I cant wait to try this tray with Mr. Butter.
Next up was review the letter Bb with some dot paint, B is for Butterfly, Butterfly Letter/Color Puzzles (printed from another Blog I really enjoy called Confessions of a Homeschooler.) and 2 books on the Color Brown and Blue. He dotted the butterfly and we went over some animals that started with Bb. We also practiced the sound B makes. After that we read the books and then did the puzzles where he had to put B and b together to make a butterfly, and also tell me the color of it. He did real good - but still calling black brown but gets brown right... and that is ok!

After he was done beading he wanted to do the Butter dish again, so while he played with that I read to him out of the Children's Story Bible, the story of the prodigal son. I know that in the picture it shows his sensory tub but Butter didn't nap as long as usual so we didn't get to it today :(
I have Bible Study on Tuesdays which I am so thankful for. It really helps to get a break and to spend time with some other ladies. The kids usually go and stay with my mom while I go which I am so blessed to have her help out! Thanks mom :) I love you and appreciate all your help! Today they went to her house while I went to Bible Study and then to the grocery store. I love my local grocery store! A few times a year they have an 8/$8 sale! I am a penny pincher- and I love saving money and finding great deals. This week they were having that sale, so I got a few good deals today which I am very happy about.
Later this evening Butter found his own sensory bin with daddy. I looked over at him and he had found a tub full of misc. tools... Who needs a sensory bin?!! It was like he had found the best toy ever!
It also looks like I have another boy who will be following in daddy's footsteps! I managed to get a few pictures of him working on a golf cart :) Our dog Boog is also posing for the camera. I love these kind of snap shots.
