First Day of Kindy

Elisha had his first day of three year old kindy on Tuesday. He loved it.

firstdaykindy

He even deemed it acceptable to tell Brett and I lots about what he did. I hope this is something we can keep up past the first week.

So in the two hours that he spent at kindy he
*made a macaroni necklace
*sang a song
*read a book
*played with trucks
*painted
*had afternoon tea (fruit)
*did some colouring in

I’m impressed!

While Elisha was at kindy Cayley and I played on the floor. I thought it would be a great idea to start the habit of walking to kindy right off the bat. Probably wasn’t such a great idea in the middle of the day when it was in the mid to high 30s. At least I know better for next time now.

Many Thanks

This card features a stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Summer mini catalogue, and a set from the Sale-A-Bration promotion.

manythanks

I am actually going through and using up some old workshop kits that I have left over, and this card was made using the pieces from this card.  Amazing how different the same pieces of cardstock can look with different stamps and layout!

Stamp Sets: Poste Cartale, Lots of thoughts
Inks: Sahara Sand, Green Galore
Cardstock: Pixie Pink, Green Galore, Whisper White
Accessories: Craft mat, paper piercer, white grosgrain ribbon, sponges

Add a Swear Word for 50c

Elisha and I were listening to some music earlier in the week. Our stereo, though old, holds quite a few cds, and I do not remove them all that often. All of a sudden we were listening to Presidents of the United States of America. Yes, I am a fan of their music, especially their first album, which also happens to be that which we were listening to.

But this is a bit of a problem as there is what I consider to be a pretty major swear word in the lyrics of the song, and it isn’t just sung in passing but is given quite a bit of emphasis and expression. I usually skip the song all together… but as Elisha has gotten older he has cottoned onto what I’m doing, and he doesn’t like it.

This particular morning he was not impressed at all, and was trying all sorts of strategic arguments to get me to let him to listen to it.
* I don’t mind listening to the naughty word
* It’s my favourite song
* If I can’t listen to this then I wont listen to anything
* General carry on and silly behaviour
Which were all to no avail.

Finally… “Well then I can’t listen to any of it, because there is other naughty words. They say ‘bacon’.”

And here is a quick photo of the cheeky little chappy with his new kindy hat, just before we were heading off to kindy open day (23 Jan).
