This weekend we stayed close to home. Saturday, we actually got to sleep in! Isabel said she woke up early and thought to herself that there was no school or Sunday school, so she could go back to sleep. So she did and slept until 9 a.m.!! It was great! In the morning, I watched my home state football play and win!! Later after the game the sun came out and Gino went out to mow the front and back lawn while Isabel and I worked in the house cleaning up.
Sunday was a rainy wet day and after church we headed back home for some leftover lunch. In the afternoon Gino headed out into the garage to start a project of a rack/shelf. He has to get all the wood he purchased at auction moved off the floor. So he worked on getting a rack/shelf up along the north wall. In the meantime, Isabel and I were inside making chocolate chip cookies! The first batch of cookies were to salty and after much thought as to way, Gino figured out that I had used his salmon smoke rub of brown sugar and salt! Oops! Talk about salty! So we started over and ended up with much better less salty cookies!
When we arrived at school this morning, we noticed the “traveling farm” semi trailer truck from the fair. We talked about all the things Isabel might see when she visited it this morning. She thought she would see cows, stinky pigs, baby chicks and other animals. After arriving at the classroom we learned that Isabel’s class would be the first one to visit the “mobile farm”. So hopefully she remembers some of the stuff inside! We’ll see…
The traveling farm this morning.
Isabel said she had to take a few photos of the traveling farm as well! Ha-ha!!!
After school as we headed out by the farm again, I stopped to get another photo with the animals.
In the pens along the trailer were goats, sheep, chickens, and bunnies. We didn’t stop long though because the man with the farm jumped up and started yelling that the area was closed and we needed to move on. How rude! We were only looking.
Isabel said she enjoyed the farm. Before they stepped into the trailer, they got to step on this mat and when they did bubbles would fly up! Cool.
Inside the trailer they got to explore on their own. Isabel said she got to see food magnets. The magnets were strong but not as strong as Daddy’s magnets.
There wasn’t an opening activity today because the class was going to the traveling farm first thing.
For this activity, the class was given a newspaper clipping and told to find all the “Nn’s”. I think this is a cool idea! Why haven’t I thought of it before???
Today starts the beginning of the new month for the class. The class will be going over previous letters and numbers learned and will learn “Nn“, “Dd“, “Gg” and “Ff“. This month the class will begin show and tell, each Wednesday, alternating between the boys and the girls. This Wednesday is the girls first turn for show and tell. This month also marks fall parent/teacher conferences the 15th – 18th. Looking forward to seeing were Isabel stands with her learn and where we need to work in areas.
