...it's so much easier to play in peace and calm when your room is clean and your toys are organized!! it's also easier to share when you have ALL of your cars in one box, as opposed to all over the house in who-knows-what box...
...it's been awhile since i have posted on this blog.
it's been awhile since i have done any kind of learning activities with the boys (whoops, can i blame morning sickness?) it's been awhile since i have done a good job of reading aloud to the boys (other than just the routine bedtime stuff.)
well, i reconciled those yesterday!! we went to the library and picked up all of these books (and read three of them during lunch and the rest of them on the couch after rest time)
and later, a little fun with texture - finger painting!!
