Continuing the alphabet train here with two more letters: E and Z!
Lots of pictures to share today. Let’s go alphabetically…
and start with A! We did A is for astronaut.
Today I am sharing the recipes for the cakes I used, but the main key is the design (although the cakes were also super delicious and stayed that way for a week). I found this really fun to make. It was easier than doing fancy frosting designs.
It’s time to share some favorites. Sometimes I come across favorites just from general reading of the internet. Lately my internet readings have been…in a word, distressing. Between the virus stuff, general bad things that happen, and then the blatant racist actions paired with the brutal reactions to protesters…it’s a lot. It’s hard to know what to say, but I will say that I support Black Lives Matters. So, what can I do in my little corner of the internet? I can share some cooking blogs you should check out. I can also encourage you to read and listen to others. It can be upsetting, and it might make you want to stop hearing about it, but if we stop paying attention and do nothing, then things will only get worse.
In the interest of catching up a bit, today I am combining two of the letters we did…U and Y. Again, nothing fancy today. The fanciest is using a hole puncher for one of the Y crafts.
Let’s start with Y is for…
We need to speed through these letter posts! I also need to doublecheck which ones I haven’t shared on here, yet. I might start doubling up if there are a bunch left. It’s hard since we went out of order. This week I have letter V to share. It was pretty simple since he now knows the word vehicles and already knew about volcanoes (benefits of having an older sibling).
The weather has been pretty crazy here lately. We have had some great weather days, some hot and muggy days, some rainy days, and everything in between. But we have still managed to get outside most of the days, even if it is just for a bit. I have been trying to mix up our activities so that we aren’t always doing the same things outside. So, some days I ask the Chiplet first what he wants, and other times the Fudgelet. The first activity chosen usually dictates front yard or back yard, and then the other kid can pick from that location. Other days I have been planning small activities, maybe bringing out something we haven’t done for a bit, just to keep things interesting.
