Today we also started learning the 2 snowman songs I posted below. I also went through our books and found 2 books about snowmen that she has been obsessing about today. She keeps saying, "Let's read about Frosty", even though none of the snowmen in the books are called Frosty. She just remembers Frosty from the holiday cartoon special.
Yesterday, she went to church class for the first time. About half way through the service the kids get up to go to their classrooms and she wanted to know where everyone was going. I told her they were going to church class and asked if she wanted to go. She said yes, so we went to the nursery and she saw itw as the nursery and said, "No, this isn't class. I don't want to go here." She's not 3 years old yet, so I didn't know if she would be allowed to go in the class for 3-4 year olds. So, I asked if she could go and offered to stay there with her. She did just fine and I don't think she would have needed to have me there. She learned about how God makes everyone special and we did a little art project with fingerprints, sang some songs, talked about special talents and had a little party to celebrate our specialness.
I took these pictures today, but we actually planted this bulb yesterday. Although yesterday my batteries were dead in the camera and I didn't think to grab my cell phone to take pictures. So, we took some pictures today.
This is from a few days ago. I attempted to have her make q-tip snowflakes, like the ones pictured in the bottom right picture (I made that.) But she had other ideas. She wanted to use the q-tips as a paintbrush and then decided it would be more fun just to finger paint. She fingerpainted on both a blank piece of paper and also a picture of a snowman.
Tomorrow she has gymnastics class again. It is good to be back in a routine. Her school class will start again in a couple weeks.
