We had a great time enjoying the Amazing castle exhibit!!!

Though one of my favorite moments came as we drove into Atlanta, on I-85, and Xander exclaimed "Mommy - I see the castles!!!"

Those castles....the Atlanta skyline....the skyscrapers and big buildings!

Getting Ready for Easter

Bendaroos Family Night






The newest craze in our house (thanks to wiki sticks at Zaxby's) is Bendaroos - if you haven't played with them - check out this video:

https://www.bendaroos.com/flare/next

Don't worry - you don't have to stay up late watching infomercials - you can find them at Toys R Us and Walgreens and online!

We spent a whole evening - bending and creating!

Our favorite practical use of the bendaroos are to work on sight words and numbers. This week we reviewed Xander's phone number and his sight words from the fall! Usually Xander makes one letter, I make the others, and then he has to guess the word! Sometimes he likes to make all the letters (his favorite sight word right now is all!).

Go MuckDogs!!!!!!

Daisy Girl Scouts




This week at Scouts we painted - and did side walk chalk - too beautiful outside to have our meeting anywhere else!

We played this new game which was loved by all:

What Time is it Mrs. Wolf
An old favorite

It stands at one end of the playing area. The rest at the other end. One location is designated safe. The group calls out "What time is it Mrs. Wolf?" and It (the wolf) says a time, i.e. 3 o'clock. The group take three giant steps forward. This continues until the group is close to the wolf. When the group says "what time is it" the wolf will answer, "time for dinner", that is the cue for the group to run to the safe place, the wolf tries to catch someone. Whoever is caught becomes the new wolf.
