We Be Pirates

For our preschool week of the letter "X" we had a pirate theme! We did "X marks the spot" and pretended all day to be pirates! The kids were absolutely adorable!

Kinsay, Noah, Abby & Andy

For our math part they all had to hunt around and find hidden treasure boxes.  Then they had to count the treasure in their boxes.  

I also sent them on a treasure hunt with notes to find an actual X that marked a spot.  They ended up in the garden and got to dig dig dig!
See the X?  :)

They finally found it...the Treasure was edible!  They were very happy!  Teaching preschool has been super fun for me and the kids!

Finished Jewelry Box

Abby LOVED painting her jewelry box she got from Grandma & Grandpa Omer and Aunt Katie!  Here is her final product.  Doesn't it look great?!  I have a little artist on my hands!  This girl can color better than me almost!!

Reading in the Mornings

Almost every morning our kids sit and read books.  If Abby wakes up before us, she knows to grab some books and sit on the rocking chair and read.  She will do this and other quiet activities almost every morning until her stomach says, "I must have food!"  Then she'll come wake me up.  I really like this habit. Joey usually will follow her lead.  

I feel blessed to have this morning activity in our home.

Fire Pit out Back

I feel like I've already posted about these pictures.  Oh well.  We finally got our fire pit for out back a while back!  I love it!  Isn't it pretty?  It makes for a great fire!  we decided to make a dinner out of it before it started getting too hot to use it.  So we did!  We roasted hot dogs and if I had not have forgotten to buy mallos, we would've made smores too. :(  Next time!
