Day Nine: First Day of "Summer"

Ah, today was a good first day of summer for me. We started our summer schedule and had a blast. Tuesday's are bowling days this summer, so we started that today. We learned some ups and downs and played two great games!

Here is what we learned:

1. Buy your own bowling shoes.  (If you are going to be going many times over the summer, the shoe rental can break the bank, especially with the games being free.)
2. Pack snacks (Alley food is expensive)

We also went to the dollar store and picked up a few things, including a toy bow and arrow set. Of course we had to try it out when we got home!

After we played a while, I wanted to get a photo of both the kids with their newly planted trees. We hope to watch them grow together. Pappy planted them in a pot to give them a good starting point. As they get bigger we will have to move them into the yard.

I really think planting trees is a fun way to record growth with children. The kids enjoy watching their tree grow with them.

Orange Rhino

Today on Orange Rhino we were supposed to start picking one trigger to work on eliminating. My husband found that extremely difficult, so I decided we needed more help, We did a little research and I found some typical, expected developmental behaviors of 2 1/2 year olds. Sometimes its hard to remember  who we are really dealing with. Seeing it written helps bring us back and see the situations we face from the outside. There is also a great list of alternatives to yelling on Orange Rhino's site.

Looking Forward

Tomorrow I am linking up with other blogs for something very exciting! I dont want to give it away, so stay tuned!
