Tot School: When We Didn’t Do Anything

Kayleigh is 40 months old

I had grand plans for this week that included the Letter V and fireworks units.  However, we just didn’t feel like it.  So we didn’t.  And that was great to.

Here’s what we did do.

We went to Grandpa’s for the Fourth of July weekend.  We did some boating, saw some fireworks, and hung out.

Had I known I was going to see an osprey and its nest I would’ve brought my real camera so I wouldn’t have to take pictures on my iPhone.  Next time…

We went to the Botanical Gardens with some friends to see the butterfly exhibit.  There were also a lot of fun mazes set up on the grounds.

Unhappy because she had grass on her shoe

Butterflies that she later found offensive

They were scarey

Ha!! The gardens seem to love Melissa and Doug as much as I do.  LOL

It was crazy hot so we went to the splash area.  She had fun for 3 minutes.

Then an out-of-control child knocked her over HARD and she got that lovely goose egg.

Another glaring reminder of why we tend to avoid places while schools out.  Sigh…Hurry September!

Recovering.  She finally ventured back in but would run away when another child would come within 3 feet of her.

Daddy didn’t like to see her injury so he got her these.  It was all he could do to not get Buzz Lightyear too.  Please visualize my eye roll.  Thank you!

Her other favorite activity was taking pictures with my phone. LOL  Here are a few of the gems that I found on it.  She took about 20.

What a fun-filled week! You are right, we would have loved to be part of your field trip :) Adventures like this sometimes provide the best learning experiences!

Beautiful fireworks pictures! :) What a fun week. Sometimes the most fun we have is when all the plans that I made don't get done. lol

You are a great photographer!! Love the photos of the flowers, especially. The sheet maze looks like fun. I wonder how I could set one of those up myself. The kids would love it. Hope your DD is feeling better!

I love that she's pouting in almost all the pictures. Gotta love this age! :)
