4 things on 4

1. Today Vivi girl is 20 months old. 
Oh my goodness. 
Such a blessing.
 Such a joy! 
So full of life!

2. The kids and I have started a yoga practice with this lovely Brit, Jamie.
Search Cosmic Kids Yoga in YouTube to find all of her videos.
She's energetic, the kids love the stories, both Dean and Vivi are trying the poses and when she's done, they're asking for more.

3, We have lights in the living room.
After many nights of darkness...we are beaming (pun intended) about the new additions.
Here's where we started

And here's where we've ended up after installing track lighting on the far side of a beam.

I should take a picture at night for full impact.

4. Heart hunt
In an effort to be a better me tonight, I pulled out an oldie but a goodie resource. 
She is an old school teacher with a ton of resources on her website for toddlers and preschoolers.
Her site isn't the prettiest in the world, but what she lacks in aesthetics, she more than makes up for in content.
Besides all of the songs and activities based on theme, season, or skill, she also has a printable calendar with activity ideas for the month.
 One per day.
Tonight I hid hearts and the kids found them. Then we switched roles. We laughed, we screamed with excitement, we counted, we used position words, we problem solved, and we had a blast.
