  4. I apologize that its been quiet over here this week [the 4th of July took a lot out of me!], but I’m… will be… sometime… over at Red Ted Art sharing a prompt for daily creativity with your kids! I’ll announce it again when I know its live.

 

 A couple posts to share with you that I enjoyed this week:

How was your Fourth?

4th of July Parade

We had a great 4th of July. This week has been sweltering hot, we’re only slightly managing to stay cool, hence why its been so quiet.

Just an update though, I did end up taking the kids to the fireworks on the 4th [the original plan was to do it on the 3rd, but due to the kids being overtired and whiney, I took it away... was that too extreme? Share your opinion]. They were especially good at the parade and had great naps on the 4th, so we celebrated with the fireworks that night. They LOVED them.

George stared at the sky, pointing at them and looking back to me to make sure I saw it too!

Henry had a lot to say during them and was the announcer for all the crowd around us. Everyone knew what colors they were, if they were big or small, and if they left smoke or not. [We have a small fireworks display that usually only shoots one off at a time, so it makes it fun for the kids to see them!]

Ready for Week 4 of the Readathon? All about Imagination! And this quote about fairy tales is a wonderful way to start it off, don’t you think? [This is my pin of it, I can't find the original image on artlete.tumblr.com where its listed at.]
