Some photographs of the Forget-Me-Not’s that Mikey planted from seeds that he chose himself in early summer. Sadly, most of the seeds that were planted got eaten by some strange bug before they could properly bloom. Only two plants were left, but happily they now have tall spikes of tiny blue flowers reaching through the railings towards the sunshine. Mikey likes to check on them every time we leave the house.
We’re still feeling under the weather. Whatever this cold is, it seems to be really just hanging around. We are feeling a little better this weekend though, I’m hoping it will have mostly cleared up by Monday. My husband has his first full day of college that day and I was also planning on starting the flexible schedule for Mikey’s preschool work at home, which you’ll be able to tell from what I’ve been reading this week.
What I’ve been reading this week:
Before I get into all the preschool activities I’ve been researching, I have to begin with these divine looking Caramel Shortbread Bites from Doughmestic. I’m not going to be able to resist making these next week.
A great article, Embrace the snapshot, from Dana Suggs via I Heart Faces.
For all of the preschool related activities I’ve been reading Homeschooling Preschoolers at Simple Homeschool and The central Importance of Play (among other lovely activities) at The Imagination Tree.
I also bought a book called Playful Learning and have been slowly making my way through the pages. It’s really great!
I started a board on Pinterest to collect together ideas for Preschool activities that I find during my reading. Some favourites are:
Mod Podge Rocks from Momtastic via Modern Parents Messy Kids.
A kid friendly terrarium from Carrie of Little Big via Make and Takes.
Popsicle Stick Magnets from Pure and Noble.
And finally, not forgetting what day it is today, Revisiting 9/11: Unpublished Photos by James Nachtwey from Time Magazine’s Lightbox.
