Today at a Glance

Today was Pajama Day for us!  :)
It was Madi Grace's idea and I thought it would be fun for them so I let them wear their pajamas all day long!  :)

Here they are working on school.
(we are using Learning Adventures and Life Pacs)
((thank goodness we have a good library))

Today, while they were doing school, Hannah Joy was playing the Kinect.  She was playing kinectimals.  (it's a sweet animal game)  She loves playing that or Adventures or the Dance game!

After I finished school with the girls, we did our daily "Hannah school."  Hannah Joy enjoys this and is learning so much.
One of my sisters, KJ, made me great flash cards and laminated them and we have been using those.  So, today we got them out and we again worked on our color names and our shapes.  She did a super job.  Then, I decided to go through all the sounds and re-evaluate where she is in her speech.  Last year when she was evaluated she knew less than half of her sounds.  She has apraxia.  Well, I was OVERJOYED to find today that she has all of her sounds except we are struggling with the sounds of L, X & Z.
She did a great job in school and afterwards she got fruit snacks!  You can see she was quite happy about that!  I give her a treat every day after "Hannah School" when she truly tries and does her best.

All the girls snugged up on the couch.
Look at Hannah and her tongue sticking out!
Silly girl!  She was supposed to be smiling at the camera!  LoL!

The, the girls got up to the table to be creative for a while.  I got the scissors and the rest of the foam paper with marked cut outs on them out for Hannah Joy.  My sister, KJ, created a really cool birthday gift for her last year and it had all kinds of awesome stuff in it.  This was part of it.  (still kept in her box after each use)  She doesn't get the concept of cutting on the lines yet but she was wanting to cut them.  Since it's been almost a year since she got them, I let her have at them.  She cut for over 2 hours and cried when it was time to put the scissors away.  Notice, Hannah didn't wear her pj's today - instead, she wore her Dora the Explorer dress up shirt and didn't put the skirt on!  hee hee...

Madi Grace got the idea somewhere to put up little post it notes in a "collage style" on the wall and asked if I had any.  I did and she was designing on them.  Sarah Faith decided to do the same.  They are allowed to stick them up on the inside of their closet door.  They had a fun time drawing and creating on them to create their collage.

Here is Sarah Faith working on hers.  I don't know how that string of hair in her face wasn't driving her batty!  She also wrote me a sweet one that said she loved me.

It was a wonderful day.. full of fun and giggles!
I am SOOOOOO blessed!

I like the idea of having a pajama day! Looks like everyone had a great time! My girls enjoy getting gifts that allow them to be crafty and it's fun to see what they can make from a hodge podge of materials!
