A few weeks ago we were at the library and happened upon a lego building event. The kids had boxes and boxes of legos to choose from to make whatever they wanted. Once they were done they were told their work would be on display on the library. Well, we were at the library again last week and their they are! Pretty neat to see your work on display.
This is our growing collection of Gridley Sound Books. She makes these with her teacher at school. For reference, each book is about the size of a quarter. some are smaller. each page has one letter or one small picture to help learn sounds. Pretty remarkable. you can see a couple of them have Gridley's name in her own hand writing.
Here is Arthur enjoying a cheese filled breadstick I brought home from the supermarket for Junk Food Sunday (super bowl sunday). They had just the right amount of salt on them (so much it was crunchy).
Gridley in her hand made Elsa dress.
After selfies, i let Gridley take a few pictures herself.
Krista did some awesome crafting with the kids for valentines day. Each kid had a project for school. Gridley had bring a card for each kid in her class. Arthur had to make just one big card for a friend who was assigned to him. Krista got an idea from her friend Elise to paint white paper all smeary, then cut out hearts as cards. Turned out amazing.
Here is Arthur's big card.
Gridley worked so hard writing her name and decorating every card.
You can see Gridley's name in her own hand. The G is kind of a curly thing. I'm pretty impressed at a four year old writing her own name.
Fish update: So the tetra were just not built for our tank. The survivors were one white cloud minnow, one red wag plat, and one peppered cory catfish. So I took Arthur to the store to buy one more of each of those fish. The guy at the store was like, yeah, you have three schooling fish, they should each have a mate. So we added a Sunburst Mickey Mouse Platy, a Green Cory Catfish, and another white cloud minnow. All fish seem much much happier now. Who knew catfish were schooling fish?
