Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs

Today was such a beautiful morning that we couldnt pull ourselves off the play ground! We had BREAKFAST OUTSIDE! The kids loved it. We had granola bars and they just kept right on playing and munching. I know... probably not the most sanitary way to feed but it was fun for them and made a memory , and today... that is what mattered to me. As I watched them play I saw them forming bonds with each other and starting cooperative play. I am not on the playground much . Randy usually does that, but today it was both of us enjoying the new found friendships!

We read the story Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs today. We talked about stranger danger and how important it is not to take anything from a stranger or open a door when our mom or dad is not right there. We counted to seven... a lot. We talked about how BLACK Snow Whites hair was and how white her skin was. We took black paint and white paint and mixed it to get gray! Our first color mixing experiment.

We sang a few new songs today....

They loved Come the Rug by SUPER FUN SHOW Shaun Brown. These kids can really dance!~ We also sang a days of the week song to the tune of " The Adams Family"

Days of the Week ( clap clap)
Days of the Week ( clap clap)
There's Sunday and theres Monday
There's Tuesday and there's Wedensday
There's Thursday and there's Friday
And then there's Saturday
Days of the Week ( clap clap)
Days of the Week ( clap Clap)

Today is also Dillions birthday! YAY! Dillion!

Today was the BEST day Rosanna has had. She hung out with me for a long time and gradually I was able to leave her side to watch her enjoy the bubbles and other children.

We are getting there.... this is going to be a great year!


  1. Sounds like you guys had another great day! I can't wait to pick Danny up.. He always loves to tell me what he did at school.. I am really liking the blog everyday! It helps out when I ask him what he did at school.. If he forgets something, I can ask him about it, and he gets so excited, and tells us all about it!

  2. Thats the idea Michelle@ thanks!

  3. Miss Debbie I just wanted to let you and Mr. Randy know how great you guys are doing. Audrey talks to me about how much she enjoys school every day. She is very happy to be making new friends also. Just wanted to let you know how much we really do love what you guys are doing over there.

  4. THAT is the song that made Elliot name EIGHT days of the week for the longest time his first year!! He listed them:

    Seriously!!! Ha. It took a long time to figure out what the heck he was saying. :) But I love this story so I guess it's okay if he secretly thinks there's 8 days of the week for the rest of his life.

  5. Well, he ended with Saturday, but the important part was the day "Fendairs."

  6. Man...you have the best playground for staying out all day!
