I'm finally feeling better. We came back from L.A with colds. Lovely. :) Aside from the colds, it was a nice 2 week vacation. We went to Disneyland, a train museum and La Brea Tar Pits (we called it the "Ice Age museum"). It was very nice to get away from the valley.
Albert went back to work today. Ethan cried this morning asking for daddy. Broke my heart. He kept saying he couldn't find him. I had to lay it down gently, "daddy had to go back to work, vacation is over." Then he cried big crocodile tears. Ay. That boy!
We are back to the old routine. Back to the piles of laundry, cooking, cleaning, crafting and teaching. :)
Ethan has become infatuated with all things snow. I have no idea when this happened. So, this week my focus is snow, winter, and snowmen.
I decided on a simple activity. Shaving cream-snowmen. I'm trying to ease into the routine myself. I have projects due as well. So I thought this was the perfect activity. Ethan was a bit confused. At first he said, "oh, yum..." I had to explain it was not whipped cream. lol Once he got over the fact that shaving cream is messy, he let loose and had a blast. He immediately asked if his cars could play in the snow too.
It entertained him for about an hour. Cars in a snow blizzard!! Fun!Supplies:
$1 can of shaving cream
cardboard carton (from water bottles) or on a craft table.
toys, measuring spoons, cups.
This is ooodles of fun!
