I hope you all were able to go outside and enjoy the wonderful weather over yesturday and today we sure did. Buggie did lots of school stuff but in an unstructured way we enjoyed a great afternoon out yesturday listening to the birds, dogs and trains, while naming all the vehicles that drove by. It was good to be out in the fresh air so much so that this morning when Buggie woke up and saw it was sunny he asked to go out, so I checked to see how cold it was, it was chilly. He wanted to go out so bad so we were out till his cheeks were starting to turn pink, but he wasen't cold at all, had to promise to come back out later. So in we went and played and warmed up with food since going outside was much more important then eating our morning meal. Then around noon I tried to sneak out and check the temp but Buggie was right there asking to put his shoes on so off we went into the wide wonderful backyard for 2 hours of fun.
he turned our backyard into quarry as I read him Goldielocks and the 3 Bears (This is fun because he gets to play but he has to pay attention too cause mommy asks questions as the story goes along and he did an awesome job of answering them and he retold the story afterwards while burying all his cars)and we played stop/go or green light/red light same thing. And we were in our sterilite sandbox driving through the purple sand and rescuing all the vehicles we could. Then it was back to the quarry after a quick run on our balance beam in the middle of the yard (a 2x4) and mom got ready to read The Gingerbread Man, now Buggie is 2.5, but we are finding he has an amazing retention and recall ability. So I ask if he remembers the story and he says yes mommy. I ask was he nice or naughty, oh he was very naughty mommy. Well Buggie why was he very naughty, beacuse mommy he kept running away, I was so proud of him. But here is the kicker, we've only listened to that story once on CD 3 weeks ago. So if anybody has any advise on gifted homeschool curriculum, please let me know.
We went out again after nap because it's supposed to snow tomorrow and I wanted Buggie to get as much fun in as we could without snow.
Well God is good and I hope you all have a Blessed evening.
PS I promise to add pics later oh and did I say we colored rice tonight, well daddy and Buggie colored rice, check out The Foster Clan's site to do this project too. So much fun and we are so excited to play with it all tomorrow.
