Week In Review
The February Sunshine steeps your boughs and tints the buds and swells the leaves within.
William C. Bryant
To Brother's disappointment, we didn't celebrate groundhog's day last week and he found out about it from a friend. So, we celebrated this week. On Tuesday I drew a little groundhog and with his shadow sitting outside of the den. Baby swiped it with the cloth though before I could get a picture. We were all disappointed, so hopefully he doesn't do that again.
I also added a little groundhog song to the circle and made up motions. Brother loved it.
Brother's weekly fairy tale was called "Mud Pony". It is an older kindergartner story, which he totally loved. He actually helped recall the story when I told it to his friend on Thursday. Which is a major improvement.
Then on Wednesday Baby became sick with the flu. He had fevers for 5 days and threw up. Yippee! Fortunately, no one else got sick, but Baby being sick was enough to derail us. So, this week we have been making up for last week. Today we drew our picture for the story, and tomorrow we will draw the form. Meanwhile, we are on Mid-winter break because I babysit on Thursday and Friday morning this week.
