Preschool Syllabus: Birds

The last several weeks have been a little crazy around our house. Husbandie has been traveling a lot but I can't really use that as excuse; I honestly just haven't been doing very good a sticking to a routine. Starting a whole new unit for the month of April seemed like an impossibility so we just moved over in the animal kingdom a little bit and slowly shifted our focus from reptiles to birds. There is debate in the scientific community about to whether dinosaurs are more closely connected to reptiles or birds so Big Buddy was all for this transition. 
We've continued to use a lot of our reptile trays but I also threw together a few new ones. 






I also pulled out a few trays from our previous units. From our farm unit


From our Thanksgiving/Turkeys unit:

Style Summary

This outfit combines my two favorite colors - it was happy day.


I hardly ever wear outfits with no "color", so this look was a little bit of a stretch for me. I ended up really liking it though and found it quite comfortable. Unfortunately our camera was on the wrong setting and all my pictures turned out really pink. Much pinker than they are now - they've been edited - I looked like I was on fire ("girl on fire" :) ).

I picked these shoes up at a church rummage sale. All you can stuff in a bag, only $3 - it was amazing! They are total old lady shoes and my feet love them!


On the day I wore this the kids and I joined Husbandie for lunch in his school's cafeteria. This outfit is a big step up from the pajama pants and leopard print slippers I used to wear to my college cafeteria - Husbandie should be proud.

Small Graces

A weekly reflection inspired in part by Bob Bennett's song "Small Graces".


"these are the small graces, the little moments when the miracles come... they are a reminder to the heart there is more to life than meets the eye... He is in the small graces.... small graces pointing me to the larger one... little glimpses of the kingdom come..."

Keeping it short this time because husbandie just got home this morning from a little work trip...


Missed his like crazy but so proud of the work he does - he such a gifted teacher. And now I'm off to spend some time with my best friend.

Style Summary

I've felt a little frazzled this last week so I've only got two outfits to show you - no comment on if I actually made it out my pajamas more then twice.  
This first outfit was encouraged by my four-year-old. He loves this orange skirt and was adamant that I should wear it with the sweater. 

These shoes, like a large portion of my wardrobe, are relatively old - kids drastically reduce the clothing budget. I bought them shortly after Husbandie and I got married. They are a little quirky and he's never quite understood them: "they are slip ons, why do they need ties:, "they don't match".  I however, think they are cute, fun, and extremely comfortable.
