For another project I created a race track out of an old cardboard box. Both Spencer and Ashton got use out of this one.
I ordered a calendar to help Spencer learn the months and days of the week. Each morning we change the days of the week. Then we look out the window to determine the weather and mark it on the poster. All the parts are velcro, so he enjoys the task of our morning calendar duties.
We had two play dates this week. We walked around the lake, played at the park and had a picnic with our ECFE friends, Carrie and Austin. Spencer absolutely adores Austin and talks about him being his friend constantly. Our other play date was our weekly Thursday night play date with our best friends, the Zeisels. Although the wind threatened to blow us away, we had a great time playing at the park.
|"Don't forget me!" Ashton pleads as we get ready for our walk around the lake.|
We've been soaking up the nice weather all week long. Saturday morning we didn't even bother to change out of our jammies before going outside to play.
Today we celebrated our local heroes at the fire hall for EMS day. Spencer enjoyed going inside the fire truck and the fire truck's friend, the ambulance.
Also today Ashton accomplished a pretty big milestone: pulling himself up to a sitting position. And we missed it. He did it alone in his crib when he woke up from a nap. This is how we found him....
|Help! Get me out of this crib prison!!|
|I'm a big boy now. I can sit up all by myself.|
|He might be getting a tad too big for the bouncy seat, eh? It's where I safely stash him while I shower, though.|
|Spenc is ecstatic a park finally has a small and light enough digger for him to actually use during "outside school" this week.|
|Talking their own language to each other.|
