Play dough

Today was our second day of school. It was a little rocky. Around 8:30 this morning we went to Sam's Club to get some groceries; milk, cereal, diet coke... the essentials. On our way home Graham started puking. And puking. And puking! I was driving so I just had to watch in the mirror and tell him it was going to be ok. Sadie was watching him then she started dry heaving then she started puking! haha If it wasn't so gross it would be so funny!! So we got home, got everyone cleaned then had to get the car washed. I paid 40 pesos ($3.50) for someone to scrub puke out of my car. 

So by the time we actually started school we were all tired and it was 11am. 
We started with circle time. Did the same little intro as yesterday; prayer, article of faith, letters and sounds and Spanish to go along with our activity. 
Today our Spanish question was "Que color es esto?" (What color is this?) And then we worked on the colors in Spanish. 

Then we made play dough. 

Right around the time we got to choosing the colors we wanted Graham had a melt down. I'm pretty sure he was exhausted just from being sick so he went up to bed.
With Max and Sadie we worked on counting and colors. In English and Spanish. 
Not my perfect day but you win some us lose some! 

The play dough recipe was super easy. A little too sticky so I added more flour. 

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
1 Cup boiling water

Mix all together
and we 4x it

The recipe for the pies we made yesterday is from here. We did apple filling!

make pie like a samurai

Today was our official start of "school". We started with circle time. Which consisted of: prayer, article of faith, learning the first 3 letters of the alphabet and their sounds, and then practicing a few Spanish words and phrases that went along with what we were doing that day. After circle time we watched The Backyardagins called "Make Pie Like a Samurai". They practiced they Samurai moves. Then we started making pies! We practiced counting and a few more Spanish words while we made the dough.
While we were waiting for them to cook we practiced writing their names. And then after naps they ate their little pies!

Watch how to make "pie like a Samurai" here.

Our first day went great! I'm just so, so tired!
