Thea spread painting plastic on our table and invited us to tea parties, offering strawberries, carrot sticks, and crackers. She doesn’t really like tea.
In preschool, Finn worked on patterns… as his friend in the purple looked for something under her chair.
In Kindergarten, Thea studied space and built a space craft using random things she found at home.
Thea’s teacher had an epic sign-in for us on Friday morning… “Write the number 16 and draw sixteen yellow suns.”
We met up with Thea’s pal Rhys and her mom and little sister.
We went to the Whitaker Center and discovered the ‘Forces of Nature’ Hurricane simulator…
and the flood simulator.
We had some friends over and held an impromptu tea party with hot chocolate, PB&J finger sandwiches, and cheese and bologna cubes.
Thea’s friend had a roller skating birthday party, and there were these walker-like squares for kids to use. I stumbled around and learned that roller skating is NOT quite like riding a bike.
She was sad to learn that Nana and Auntie Lala stopped by while we were gone, and Jason read the note they’d left for her.
She was thrilled with the goodies they’d brought for her.
The following day, Finn’s friend Livvie came over with her mom and dad.
They took turns tucking each other into bed… pretending to snore.
And eavesdropping on one another.
They worked on their latest Kiwi Crate wonders: “Reptiles” and “Arcade”.
There were party blowers to simulate lizard and snake tongues.
And they practiced swimming some more (she’s about to lose another tooth, on her lower left).
Discovered some strawberry scented body paint.
And kept practicing for summertime.
