Style Summary

This shirt is old but I'm not sure I'll ever be able to get rid of it - it is so much fun to wear. 

SUNDAY earrings & shoes: target, shirt: h&m, skirt: thrift, belt & bracelet: gift 

THURSDAY earrings, bracelets, & belt: ?,  jacket: tjmaxx, shirt: charlotte russe,
pants: gap, shoes: dsw 

I love the idea of outfits like this and I find them super comfortable to wear. In my mind clothes don't get much better than a soft sweater, a pretty skirt, and fun flats. It's hard to make a sweater and skirt look flattering though; I thought the belt would help but next time I'd leave it off. 

THURSDAY necklace & shoes: gift, sweater and belt: thrift, tights: target
dress worn as a skirt: florence

This was my Easter outfit, we attended our churches Saturday night service. I never thought I'd brave mixing three patterns, and truthfully this happened by accident. I multitask while putting away laundry and will hang up outfits at the same time. I had planned to pair the shirt and sweater with jeans and the skirt with a different top. However, they fell on the bed next to each other and I was instantly smitten.

SATURDAY earrings: target, shirt: jcpenny, shoes: dsw, skirt: vintage/thrift, belt:?
sweater: old - like seriously old, so old I had passed it down to my little sister a couple years
ago and just recently took it back.

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…

A Little Red Cardboard Barn

We've finished our farm unit and are moving on to a new theme tomorrow - but before we do I wanted share the barn we made.

The wooden farm animals came with a beautiful handmade ark that we gave Big Buddy for Christmas a couple years ago.  I would someday love to have a wood barn but it's currently not in the budget. So in the mean time we decided to improvise and make our own. 

I stumbled upon this perfectly sized milk box (4 gallons per box) while subbing and thought it would be sturdy enough to handle play. Hubandie and the boys used an x-acto knife and wood glue to build a barn shape.

We then painted with a basic primer and outlined a window and a door with painters tape.

Big Buddy however insisted that we add more windows so it looked like the barn in our book The Big Red Barn. He even brought the book over so we'd know exactly how to do it :) 

Once everything was taped I let the boys paint the barn with rollers and washable, red tempera paint.

The boys really enjoye…
