Style Summary

I usually look forward to wearing dresses and heals on Sunday - it's not a look I can always manage when I'm by myself with kids the rest of the week. This last week, however, I wasn't feeling it and opted for jeans instead. These jeans make me smile because they are  Husbandie's find. He had indulged me and agreed to afternoon at Goodwill and while we were there he found these jeans - $7!

SUNDAY earrings & cardigan: target, shirt: mod cloth, belts, shoes, & jeans: thrift 

Isn't this bike necklace fun? I found on clearance at Target and I thought it was a perfect spring/summer accessory. 

MONDAY necklaces: target & claires, sweater: gap, shirt: h&m, pants: anthropologie
shoes: target
 

This is one of my favorite skirts. Not only do I love the colors but the green and blue detail on the skirt is actually embroidery.  That combined with the waistband gives it some fun and unique texture. 

THURSDAY headband: charming charlie, necklace: francesca's, shoes: florence
sweater & skirt: anthropologie

  6. My fave is the last skirt; my daughter has the same one, so you made me smile and think of her. It looks great the way you paired it with the green sweater. She wears it with a rose colored Anthro t.

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

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…

A Knightly Affair

This past Saturday we had a joint birthday celebration for Big Buddy (6) and Mini Man (4). They have both been intrigued with knights and dragons for a while now so that's the theme we chose. 

Papa and Maca Lindsey were gracious enough to let us host the party in their backyard/secret garden, it was the perfect setting. 

In leu of traditional party favors, we outfitted the party guests with a sword, surcoat, and shield. Everyone's surcoat and shield was emblazoned with their sigil/initial.





The shields were also our party craft. They are cardboard which Jeremy cut with a laser cutter. I then hot glued and taped (double reinforcement!) ribbon on the back for handles. The kids used dot markers to decorate the shields. This worked out really well because the cardboard absorbs the ink so fast that drying is almost instantaneous.


In addition to the shields we also had a few other themed activities: a dragon catapult, sand castle building, a row of balloons for sword practice, and t…
