Jacob's Birthday Party

Jacob invited us to his birthday party at Little Bear play area. It was a special treat because we got to go during the school day. We had a lot of fun celebrating Jacob turning 4 years old!

We got to workout.

So many places to climb and slide.

We could climb a rock wall.

They even had a trampoline!




One of our favorite parts was spinning around so fast until we fell down. Check it out!

It's a Bugs's Life

The kids found a cricket on the playground and they enjoyed watching it and trying to catch it. Unfortunately, his life was very short but it was very entertaining.

Apples!

When learning about the color red, we also learned about apples.





Esther and Frances are doing a great job on their coloring. Look at those circles Esther made and all the colors Frances used!







We used our hands to paint an apple.




We stenciled with some apple cutouts and used sponges to paint our red apples. We enjoyed watching the apples appear when we took away the stencil.
