A is for Apple...Ants on a Log and Animal Crackers! Such a fun lunch which started our Wednesday.
We took the morning rather slow and relaxed with some books and just play time. 11:00 am rolled around and I served up some lunch.
Zoe had an absolute ball with her lunch. She was a little bit skeptical at first with celery and peanut butter...but after the first bit she was good to go! We also had to make noises with each animal cracker!
Evan loved lunch too...but I am not sure there is a time when he hasn't!
Since lunch is a rather long event for Zoe on most days, we took a break from actually eating and started the things I had planned.
We started with painting! I thought it would be fun to paint all our favorite AUNTS a picture and mail it to them! Zoe loves painting so I thought it would be great to paint with a purpose!
After our fun Aunt craft, we moved on to talking about our saint of the week, Saint Anthony. While Zoe colored, I told her a little bit about St. Anthony and then I told her his prayer...and she thought it was really funny.
Time to earn some tickets! Like I said, this ticket system has been working wonderfully! We have added "helping with the dishwasher" as a way to earn tickets for her Movie Night. Zoe and Evan do the silverware and they both love it. It is also a great way for Zoe to learn to sort things out!
I had one last craft on the agenda for our fun filled "A" day! This Angel craft including painting, coloring, cutting and gluing! Wahoo!
She is so proud of her angel! She talks about her all the time and how we have to keep her high on the fridge so Evan doesn't rip her.
Our mail runs really late, so when Daddy got home...Zoe and I got ready to go to the library before dinner. We headed to the mailbox first to drop off our letters. This is a picture of Zoe talking on her "cell phone" on her way to the mailbox....or so she says.
After the library and dinner, Daddy had a awesome fire to help us unwind with for the night....
Evan had plans of his own!
