Preschool Years at Home

Laughing, Loving, and Learning Together

Making a Splash

on May 20, 2012

The neighborhood pool opened Friday, much to the delight of both girls (and their parents)! I was so focused on digging out swim gear, applying sunblock, and making sure both cubs were safe in the water Friday that I didn’t realize until after the fact I’d forgotten to take our annual First-Day-in-the-Pool pictures. We had extended family visiting this weekend, though, so the girls’ aunt took plenty of Second-Day-in-the-Pool pictures for us:

Mama Bear and Baby Bear

Fun in the sun

Outside the pool, Little Bear has continued to work with rhyming words and word families. She’s taken an interest in time and is trying to learn how to tell time on an analog clock. We’ve played patterning, matching, counting, and story-telling games. We’ve learned about pets through books, videos, pictures, puzzles, play, and conversation. (Shhh! We’re saving the secret of the digital clock until after she learns to tell time the old-fashioned way!) We’ve also finished our third Bobbsey Twin book.

In the week ahead, I hope to get back on some semblance of a schedule, at least to the degree that we can with a borrowed newborn in the house.
