Hi friends...I've gotten a bit behind but we've been up to our usual- getting out & about, and living live to its fullest.
Chinese New Years Festival
Sunday 2/6. We spend Sundays at Grandma's and the girls love playing dress up in her old clothes.
Monday 2/7- Kennedy enjoys pulling her wagon and chasing her shadow.
Tuesday 2/8- Jordan worked independently in her preschool book, while I cooked dinner.
Wednesday 2/9- Evidently, I failed to take a picture.
Thursday 2/10- Grandma & Jordan completed a mini-unit based on Gregory the Terrible Eater and made all these bags displaying the different food groups and healthy/junk foods. They cut out the pictures from the Sunday sales papers.
Friday 2/11- We went to see this improv VCU troop perform Jack & The Bean Stalk. Alex was pulled from the audience to be the Golden Goose.
Saturday 2/12: Jordan attended her first birthday party. A fairy "spa party"for three year olds, how adorable.
Say Cheese for the camera...
and later that night, mommy & daddy were able to attend the Richmond Ballet's "Giselle", thanks to Macaroni Kids Richmond(Can you believe I won free tickets!). It's a beautiful Ballet that follows a traditional storybook script : Boy of noble class pretending to be a farmer meets peasant girl and falls in love. Boy forgets he's engaged to another of noble class and hence the dilemma. Peasant girl dies of heartbreak, Duke is love stricken.....and you can imagine the rest. If not, be sure to go when your local Ballet company performs Giselle. It's short enough for children and very easy for all who watches to fill in characters dialouge while viewing. Young and old alike will be mesmerized with the "floating on air" dance techniques and the amount of strength yet gracefulness required of its dancers.
Stolen photos, not taken by me, but doing the performance much more justice.
more to come, I can't believe I still need to post dates from 2/13 til now....
