What I've Been Wearing

Last Sunday I met my family at church after being away at the women's retreat all weekend; Jeremy and I didn't discuss what we'd be wearing, but this still happened. We somehow end up unintentionally matching a lot. In fact, a couple weekends ago, when Jeremy was at the Men's retreat, we both showed up to church wearing orange. People are starting to's a bit's also a lot of fun! 

dress: c/o eshakti, shoes: restricted, cardigan: gap

shirt: old navy, skirt: banana republic, shoes: thrift, necklace: gift

We are experiencing a bit of a cold front in the midwest right now. It feels very odd to be out and about in July, in jeans and a sweater, and still be cold. I'm not ready for summer to be over so hopefully the weather warms up soon. 

I'm cracking up in the picture below because despite how much I enjoy documenting my outfits I cannot deny the ridiculousness of it all. Sometimes when the posing gets to be just a little too awkward all you can do is laugh. 

cardigan + jeans: gap, shirt: old navy, shoes: restricted via dsw, bracelets: target + thrift

Preschool Syllabus: Dr. Seuss

Normally I'd do a Dr. Seuss unit in March around his birthday. We had to do one now though because on Saturday Big Buddy and I going on a date to a Dr. Seuss exhibit. The exhibit is only at the museum until January and I'm afraid if we don't go now we might not get the chance.

We are of course reading lots of Dr. Seuss's books. A great advatage to studying Dr. Seuss in November rather than March is that all his books were available at the library. I also found a great children's biography which is perfect for preschoolers.

 We've read it a couple times and Big Buddy loves reciting all the facts he's learned


LEARNING "TRAYS" -I rotate these, setting out about four a day from which the boy's can choose.

Paint Chip Word Families

We haven't been doing a ton of school work this summer but we have tried to fit in a little reading practice everyday. We are currently working our way through Bob Books and The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading - I  highly recommend both. I saw this idea for paint chip word families on Pinterest several months ago and knew it would be one we'd have to try. I changed it up a little bit so that the the strips pulled through the word family cards.  

My supplies: large white paint chips, various colors of paint chips, sharpie, scissors, and an x-acto knife
 Step 1: Because my colored paint chips were so wide I folded and cut them in half.

Step 2: In the center of the white paint-chip, use the x-acto knife to cut two openings, at the top and bottom of the white square, the width of the color strip. 

Step 3: Use the sharpie to write letters on paint chips (a list of word families can be found here
Step 4: Pull strip through word family card 

 Step 5: Have fun readi…

Preschool Syllabus: Farms

We started a new homeschool unit this week: farms. With all our harvest activities it seemed like a natural choice.  This last weekend we attended a neighboring town's scarecrow festival and we plan to go to a pumpkin farm with a barnyard petting zoo in the next couple weeks. We will focus on this unit for the rest of October.

During our rug times the boys and I will be singing a lot of farm related songs (Counting Coconuts has complied a great list) and make our way through the mass of books I checked out from the library.  I won't overwhelm you with a picture of them all but I will recommend a couple. For fiction Click Clack Moo: Cows That Typeby Doreen Cronin and Gossie by Olivier Dunrea.  Both of these books have a nice rhythm, great pictures, and sweet humor. We actually own them and several others by these authors - they are some of the most read books in our collection.  For nonfiction, 21st Century Junior Library, has published several great farm-themed books.
