This morning we enjoyed heart shaped toast with raspberry jam for breakfast. The girls were thrilled to find new headbands and stickers on the table when they woke up. :) I love how excited they get about special days like this.
Lucy and Julia enjoyed a Muffin Tin Meal for lunch - shark crackers, yogurt, clementines, heart shaped cheese, strawberries, and lunch meat for Lucy. We also had cupcakes for dessert. I had hoped to make some heart picks or be a bit more creative with lunch, but we ended up with a busy day. Grandma babysat while we took Leia to the vet in the morning and then I had to leave again for a dentist appointment right after lunch. The girls were thrilled with the tins anyway and appreciated the effort.
It was also box day! I was so excited to have most of what we need to get started with Little Hearts For His Glory. (We are just waiting on the science book to arrive.) I used Swagbucks gift cards to purchase a few books from Amazon and got the rest used from someone. I had been checking the tracking all week and was hoping my packages would arrive today. Lucy begged to get started right away. I really found the teacher's manual to be "open and go", because that's just what we did. Julia joined us for much of it and had a blast.
I've spent more time tonight looking through everything and am excited. I think it will be a good review for Lucy in some ways, and I can see both girls having a lot of fun with the activities. For math today we wrote numbers across the top of a page and glued the corresponding amount of hearts by each number. We are using Little Hearts as it is written, and using My Father's World for the phonics portion. We'll also continue our Bible timeline, Bible notebook, and 100 days chart. I think this will be a good change and am excited to see how the girls do with it.
Hope you had a fun day too!
