Kitchen Companion

Maya's working in one of her favorite books
"Play Shop", DK publishing
You'll hear her saying things like,
"Eggplant can be found in the PRODUCE section"yes,
she will one day
have every possible photographic angle of her baking
and how I do love her little helping hands at work!
"M's Cooking"..M for Mama and Maya cooking together :o)
that's the name she gave our "cooking show"
she likes to pretend we're on while in the kitchen.
She often has an accent :D and is always her future older self!
Reading directions and applying those math skills's our time to create and share together

Thank-you for being my constant companion in the kitchen Maya!

Mama looks forward to many more yummy dishes and cooking shows together xoxo

Our Day

Early Morning Dentist check-ups for my 4
no cavities..2 loose teeth for Kyle..
Oh the Tooth Fairy has been working overtime already! Then onto Earth Scouts where I served up some Dirt Pudding
(chocolate pudding topped with crushed oreos)
complete with writhing gummy worms
(2 above photos by Casandra :o)

We made Chia Pets
and took, in the wind and flurries,
what we called the "fastest nature walk in history"
to find leafy lichen indicating air quality
There were poems read aloud by all
this one of Meganand each scout
made a garland of treats for the birds

Then we went to visit and snack with friends
and stayed out way past our bedtimes!
Does this mean they let me sleep in? LOL~ no

This is how I've been feeling...
I'm here though :o)
watching my children learn and grow
They are my joy
and my heart

As for Meg,
she has this new way about her Maya's still searching for treasuresand giving them a home in her pockets
Kobe's been practicing new tricks
Tree climber Kyle,
with the wind in his hair
Now to focus on the task at hand..
it's cold at the moment and there's a long way to go

but we'll do it together

Dino Day

T-Rex model building sparked some reference reading and Dino Art
Kyle's "long neck" is wearing goggles
and then pretend play...the claw of a Maiasaura!
It was tough for a storm trooper in Prehistoric times to be continued...i'm sure
