We have completely enjoyed our time off together, have completed lots of crafts, had several play dates and played lots of games. Aidan even said he would rather stay home from school until Monday because he has had such a good time. =)
However, all three kids are excited to see their friends at school again. Alayna has been looking at her classmates and teacher's pictures all week longingly as we keep counting down the days until she sees them again.
So what did we do with our three weeks off school?
We painted a little...
Even if it was on ourselves....
We had lots of extra jammie time and extra snuggle time.
We made pottery, well ok if truth be known we spent HOURS creating pottery only to have one mother (who shall remain nameless) put her thumbnail through the side of Aidan's creation. Oops...we gave up and will try again another day. Thankful for my son being so forgiving!
We did lots of puzzles and fine motor activities to keep the girls in practice for school.
|We love this new Melissa & Doug puzzle as it really works out those fingers|
And some of us couldn't STOP playing with our old toys...she is seriously addicted to this ball popper which Alayna had stopped playing with long before Dariya arrived. Thankful we didn't garage sale it.
I am one happy and blessed mama! Hope your holidays were as blessed.
