The second week of the year really flew by before I realized what happened! There has been a lot going on.
I've been trying to keep up with Meli's book-it calendar. It was a little trying getting back into the groove after the holidays.
Found some fun little magnetic Valentine words + phrases at Target and thought the kids would get a kick out of playing with them. I thought they would be a cute little reading activity for Meli, but Riley has also found them fun.
Graham crackers with peanut butter, a staple snack around our home.
We received a letter from Meli's school telling us that she was named a Student-of-the-Month for December! So proud of her!
Came across some great deals at Target-- 70% off toys! Grabbed a cart-full for birthdays + Christmas for the coming year.
Over the weekend it was just me with both kiddos at the house. It reminded me of how it used to be before they headed off to school, when it was just the 3 of us each day. They ended up outside, which is the way it always seemed to be back then. But now Meli's imagination has grown.. she decided that she was on a safari watching lions and tigers. She "wrote observations" for me and "took a picture" of a lion in it's natural habitat.
At the end of the week Meli had a sleepover with her friend, Dylan. Lots of fun. Dress-up, running around, coloring, and baking cookies. Dylan and Riley even hung out quite a bit. It was a fun time and I'm sure that there will be more sleepovers in the future.
