We finally had enough snow to play in, snow boots for Landon, and temps that weren't frigid, so this afternoon we played in the snow. It wasn't good for making snowballs at all, but Landon enjoyed being pulled around in his little sled.

This evening we made this snowman picture. I cut the circles and he glued them on. He drew on two eyes, a mouth, and buttons. This is the first time that he's done representational drawing like that. Afterward, he used a paint dotter to add snowflakes to the picture.

We also got out our Valentines Day craft kits (from another craft co-op) and make a Valentines puppy puppet.

Inauguration Day

Are you watching the Inauguration coverage? We are. Whenever Obama's not on the screen, Landon asks, "Where's Brak Obama?" (He's also pronouced it today so it sounds more like 'Broccoli' or 'Barkley,' but he's getting much closer to the proper pronunciation!) He really enjoyed whenever they showed the band playing before the ceremony. We also did this flag project this morning. Happy Inauguration Day!

South for the Winter

We've seen a lot of geese flying south lately, and each time, Landon stops to watch. Today we talked about the geese and how they fly in a 'V' formation. I drew a 'V' on blue paper with glue, and Landon stuck clipart geese that I'd printed onto the glue. (The clip art came from here. They're not the most attractive geese, but they were the best I could find.)

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2009! We brought in the new year by attending a party with family until about 10:00. Then we decided to bring Landon home to bed, but we let him stay up long enough to watch the ball drop in New York, and we toasted one another with our Klean Kanteen water bottles.
