Jack attack.

Spring2011 029

Jack is busy my friends. His new interests include the weather, bugs & singing songs by himself.

The other day I mentioned something about how the weather was nice…it was sunny outside…and Jack went on to tell me about all the different kinds of weather.  He especially liked to talk about thunder, lightning, & rain, so that’s what prompted this activity, which went from learning about clouds, etc. to a cutting activity, so we cut :)

I encouraged him to finish gluing his rain drops and clouds, but what he really wanted to do is cut them, so I let him.  Most activities with 2 yr. olds aren’t about the finished product.

Its very hard to go a day without dirt…

Miss Madeline is my eater.  She eats ANYTHING I feed her(so opposite of Jack when he was her age!)  It makes me sad that she can’t have milk because she LOVED yogurt and pastas with cream sauces.

It was another rainy day, so I asked Jack what he wanted to learn about.  He thought for a minute…and said CRICKETS! So, we looked up crickets on the IPAD and created one(notice the puff balls…my focus was fine motor skills…his was crickets Smile) He loved the activity…which quickly led to LADY BUGS.

So, we looked up lady bugs…and then he wanted to paint some, so there you have it…I quickly whipped up some “lady bugs” and he painted them…and only them!  He did add a sun to the picture though…

By the way…I enrolled Jack in a preschool program for next year…TUES./Thurs. 9-2 pm.  Ya’ll…I gave myself three fever blisters over this process. I had SUCH high standards…it was like I was trying to get him into the BEST of the BEST college…and in reality it was preschool for two days a week…

I’m really happy with the school I found.  It’s a Christian preschool…hands on, discovery based learning, and some JESUS which was really important to me.  I’m looking forward to class parties, field trips & giving Jack some time to be with other kids & learn!

I think Jack and Cole would be bestest friends! It just cracks me up how similar they are. I don't think it's possible for Cole to be more boy! We'll have to get them together one day!
