Today I looked like a confused tourist. Snapping pictures while sitting at stop lights, in parking lots, and inside stores. The kids excitedly pointing and squealing and begging me to "take a picture of this one, Mommy!"
We were the letter A paparazzi. And boy, did we hound that letter! There was no hiding place too obscure, no size too small, no font too obscure for our well-trained eyes. (And no amount of embarrassment to prevent the photo taking either.)
Our "Summer of Letters" started off with a bang today. Look for us on more letter scavenger hunts around town. No letters are safe!
Also included in our summer term:
* Practicing writing our names (R - letters in her name, S - capital to start, lowercase the rest)
Although, I personally like their signatures just fine the way they are. And I am NOT looking forward to the day when Shae stops writing her S like a 2. Plus, she prefers to write her favorite nickname: "2HAE2HAE" instead of Shaelyn. Handwriting to me is like an indicator of childhood being left behind.
And this Momma's not ready.
* Pencil holding in all its glory (complete with some really new awesome pencils and pencil grips)
* Plus non-letter-related fun with our newest subscription to Kiwi Crate!
