Starting the Ocean Unit

This is what our days look like:

8-12: run errands, go to the library or park, color, play
12: lunch
1-4: naps and snack
4-6: SWIM
6: dinner
7: art projects, read books
8:30: bed
We are studying "oceans" right now, and the kids are making an ocean scene on our un-decorated wall. Here they are glue-ing cheerios to starfish (Maya thought the glue was a fun dip for her cheerios snack until I confiscated it).
Here is a picture Vivi made for my dad for Father's Day. It is Nala and Simba and Zazu on Pride Rock, with a giraffe, cheetah, elephant and zebra watching. (the black figure is the elephant). She is so good at drawing- everytime she impresses me more!

All in all it was great first week! We are unpacked (yeah, once I found out cockroaches like the glue in boxes, I unpacked in a day and threw all boxes away), settled in, already have books checked out from the library, food in the fridge, clothes in the dressers, and toys strewn around.

The pictures the kids sent were so cute! They on the fridge for us to enjoy! Expect some mail in a couple of days-stuff for your ocean unit and other goodies! Love, Mom
