During the day I am busy with watching kids and spending time with Mya and Keegan. The kids are always better when you have structured activities throughout the day. Some of the things that we do in the morning include making playdough and bubbles. The kids love it when they get to pick out their own colors so we add food coloring to them. The other day we went for a walk in the woods outback behind our apartment and the kids picked out rocks that we painted and put eyes on for their "rock pets." Now that it is warming up (not that it was ever really cold) I want to take the kids over to the pool and let them play and drink slushies (because the we have a slushie machine in our lounge). The kids are always tired after a long fun day like that.
Here are some pictures of those adventures............
Here is a good playdough recipee....
1 cup salt
1 1/4 cup warm water
3 cups flour
Mix and knead into a ball
If it is still sticky just add a little more flour. I usually end up adding more flour the more the kids play with it.
Here is a Bubble Recipee.....
1/2 cup dishwashing liquid (dawn, joy)
2 cups water
2tsp of sugar
(drentching a string in water and making big bubbles with it is lots of fun.) When we play out on the lawn the kids are usually soaked by the end of the adventure.

All day today when I asked Keegan to do something his reply was, "Why?" I would ask him to go and sit down and he would ask, "why?" I would ask him to throw something away and he would ask, "why?" Finally I turned to him and asked, "Did you learn a new word today?" His reply was an honest, "uh huh" with a smile of course.

I'll give you a clue...
Who live's in a pinnaple under the sea?
Mya, Keegan and the boy that I watch, Aiden, are obsessed with spongebob squarepants. Everytime that it is on they are singing the song and dancing and running around. It is fun to see how kids interact with their favorite shows.

I told my mom that I would post a picture of Mya singing to Alicia Keys because she has never heard of this song. Mya knows most of the words because she is always requesting the song. Even in church when they ask her what song she wants to sing she always tells them "Alicia Keys" This is Gerald's influence on our kids!!
