Teach it Thursdays - Keeping Little Fingers Busy

Diflucan Cost, The other day I got a chance to spend the morning with Stephen in class. I love these class observation days as they always give me insights and ideas into what may keep our little Iron Man busy at home... Diflucan price,

As the two older ones require more one-on-one time, it's always a struggle to keep the little one from scribbling on homework papers or running off with the violin when no one's looking.

So anyway, order Diflucan from mexican pharmacy, one of the "works" (Montessori term for "activities") was a little wooden board of nails for the children to stretch rubber bands across into various forms. Order Diflucan online overnight delivery no prescription, Very simple, and it kept Stephen entertained for a good 10 minutes (which is a lot for him). He was also thoroughly engaged in cutting tiny strips of paper and doing dot pictures, Diflucan Cost. So after class, Diflucan pictures, I took him to Michael's and got a set of dot markers. Where to buy Diflucan, Visit my Resources page to find a list of places to print free dot-art pages. I also picked up a wooden slab for $3 to make my own rubber-band peg board. Here is a quick tutorial:

Rubber-Band Peg Board

You will need:

  • A wooden board (mine measured 10.5"x8")

  • Wooden screws (nails would work too, Diflucan long term, but since they are tiny and sharp... Diflucan Cost, and would make a good weapon if played with improperly... Online buying Diflucan, screws seemed a safer option)

  • Pencil

  • Ruler

  • Drill (or screwdriver)

1. Mark off every inch with your pencil and ruler to help with screw/nail placement.

2, discount Diflucan. Place a screw or nail according to your marks.

3, Diflucan Cost. Diflucan from mexico, Ta-da. All done.

Also during our trip to the craft store, Diflucan overnight, I picked up some sprigs and fake succulents to make a new wreath:

I spent $30, Buying Diflucan online over the counter, a bit more than my usual, but I really wanted something natural but "modern" (a.k.a. "not country"), about Diflucan. Diflucan Cost, You definitely pay up for non-tacky-you-can-spot-it's-a-fake sprigs...

Speaking of sprigs and sprouts... Diflucan price, coupon, When did my baby boy...

...get so big!!.

Calvin turned 7 earlier this week, herbal Diflucan. We had a small party for him at the Clubhouse Fun Center, complete with go-karting.., Diflucan Cost.

...that even little Stephen enjoyed... Diflucan maximum dosage,

...miniature golf, and arcade games. Our guests ranged from 2 years to 12 years, and there was something for everyone...

Embrace the dorkiness.

We also attended his second concert the night of his birthday:

Even Stephen enjoyed it:

Especially since they got some ice cream afterwards :)

Plan Fail

So as the title of this post suggests, my perfectly laid out plans for the day, failed.

Let's begin with now, at 11:44 p.m. I should have started my 7 hours of blissful, uninterrupted sleep, two hours ago. But instead, I am sitting next to Jeremy, watching him pretend to be Wolverine, and blogging. Plans for a good night's rest... fail.

Or how about at 8:30, after tucking the kids in bed, I had wanted to finish a dress for Charissa that's been sitting on my sewing table 80% completed for a month now... and make a few cute bibs for Stephen who is sprouting his very first tooth... and make a mini "backpack" for the kid's Leapster... and upcycle some old shirts... and work on perhaps resurrecting my Etsy shop by putting together some dress kits for sale... Instead, I chose this:

Yeah. Terminator Salvation. I'm a sucker for brainless, action-packed movies. Free time plans... fail.

Then there was dinner, which was supposed to be dumplings, but sort of morphed into steak and roasted brussel sprouts because I was too tired just thinking about wrapping the little suckers... because this morning, my kids decided to get sick. Hence, no school and no exercising or finishing projects around the house. Plans for the day... all fail.

But that's okay.

We're flexible, right?! :) The kids weren't that sick (everything normal except for the occasional attempt to hack out a lung), so I decided to dabble in a bit of homeschooling to hopefully make up for some lost educational stimulation.

First, we got happy about our marigolds that were starting to show some life:

Then we did a "spring inspired" numbers activity (Calvin had to find and place the numbers 1 to 30 in order; Charissa did 1 to 10):

And worked on addition with Calvin:

The addition activity involved having Calvin place the correct number of cubes in each cup, and then dumping them into the third cup to count altogether. I got this idea from the My Montessori Journey blog. A great idea since the act of pouring the cubes from the two cups helps reinforce the concept of adding. (And I got to use up some old business cards from my days at Wells Fargo.)

Then we played, ate lunch, took a nap, and went to the grocery store. Plans for spending quality time with my children... WIN! (By the way, if you haven't already, you really should check out the fail blog.)

I should get to bed now. It's 12:20, and yes, it took me 36 minutes to write one little post...
