We checked the eggs again this morning.

Since there were only four children here for daycare today we went to the back playground. But first we stopped at the garden to eat some fresh peas.

They had a lot of fun out there!

He rode bike...

...and rode bike...

...and rode bike some more. Thats all he wanted to do out here.

Lunch- Chicken n Rice, Green Beans, Cheese Slices, Bananas

We had a very quiet day today with only four daycare children. This morning we checked the eggs to see if chicks had hatched. No such luck.
From there we went to the back playground but on the way the children wanted to stop at the garden and eat fresh peas.
They had a blast sliding on the slide, swinging , getting motorcycle and jeep rides (one of the older children was pushing them around on the riding toys) riding bicycles, and exploring new places.
At storytime we read "The Curious Little Kitten Around the House" and Cheltenham's Party". We sang "There Are Seven Days" and "My God Is So Big". We also did "This Little Chick", a colors and rhyming activity.

Artwork with stencils.

I took them out to the garden and they picked some fresh peas...

...and ate them.

Trying out the Little Tykes car on the porch.
She didn't want to get out when it was time to go
inside for lunch.

Some great friends came by for a visit this morning. Just a couple more weeks and they will be back every day.

Singing "Just watch me stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp,stomp my feet and say..."

We made milkshakes this morning.

They thought it was funny when he poured the soda in and made the mixture fizz.

This was everyones favorite part of making the drinks.

What a delicious,cold, refreshing drink!

We have some chicken eggs in an incubator that should be hatching any day now. So this morning I took the children to see the eggs.

We put the eggs over a light and turned off the rest of the lights so the children could see the form of the chick inside the egg.

We did "This little Chick". (a colors and rhyming activity)

Singing "I can be a sunbeam..."

"I can be a raindrop..."

Singing "Let's all clap hands together..."

"Let's all hold hands together..."

"Let's all be quiet together..."

Having a little story before nap.

She thinks she found herself a comfortable spot to sleep! She really didn't want Mary to take her off.

Today is a 'no picture' day since I had to be gone for the first half of the day (Calvin filled in for me) but from what everyone says the day went very good.(See, they don't even need me!)
My older girls had circle time with the children. I'm not sure what all they read and sang with them but it sounded to me like everyone cooperated and they had a good time.
After nap I took everyone outside from 3:30-5:30.
