Ground Hog Day

Today has been a fun day. If you  remember my post about " Miss Mary's house" , today I TOTALLY felt like Miss Mary.  To the left see the massive 3D Art that Elliot has made, he called it his airplane, so today we spray painted it!

Halle LOVED the new playdoh!

I made new homemade playdoh for the kids- they loved it!

Halle lost a tooth over the ice break!

Hearts are everywhere.

The kids were measuring everything!

A matching game I made from paint chips!

New block center people- I think we know these kids!

One to One !

Matching and fine motor!

Adam loves the new safety vest I bought!

Today we talked about ground hog day.  Adam had a conversation with his dad this morning so he was little walking WIKKI for us!  We listened to a book on tape and found out these things too:

There are three names for a ground hog
   1.  groundhog
   2. Whistle pig
   3.  Wood Chuck

They climb and swim.
They sleep or hibernate all winter.
If he sees his shadow there are 6 more weeks of winter . ( The shadow scares him back in his den)

He is kin to a squirrel.

LOTS of learning going on today! 

Welcome back!


  1. Awww, so glad you guys are having a great day.

    Is Adam playing with a leapster? I thought about gettin him one for Christmas, but I didnt know how well he would be able to use it.

  2. I love all the games!! And seriously, we're going to have to move into a bigger house before Elliot can take that airplane home! :)

  3. Okay, I read every post since the start - so many cute pics and stories! Christmas makes me insane and I swear it takes me a month OR MORE to get back into a groove! Today looked so fun! Katie told me all about the Groundhog, and how he didn't see his shadow, and then Gracie gets in the car, and says he DID see his shadow, and the fight ensued...haha - thanks for all the great pictures and videos -

  4. oh! so glad to have found your blog.
