Brief Catch Up

Well since school started it has been pretty busy here in child care land... I never imagined the life I have now, but I couldn't have it any better. I enjoy having extremely busy days but I love the more quiet calm days just as much. I'm still getting use to the new schedule school has brought, and am working hard on building relationships with new kids and strengthen relationships with everyone here. 
 With several kids needing school readiness I decided to focus these next few weeks on scissor skills. One of the days I drew the letter their name begins with and they had to fill their letter with playdough. Once we mastered the "snake" skill they filled their name with the snake, then they snipped the dough and filled it with small pieces. I decided to call it good but pretty soon they were trading letters to do each others, it was a great activity.
 One day my cousin who lives here called and said she had a surprise visitor out by her mailbox and wondered what I thought about it. I said bring it on over!!! So we had this {not so little} pet for about a week, the kids went crazy over it. Hopefully we are only visited by tarantulas in jars...

Most of my day is spent following the kids lead and doing what comes naturally to them. A different way of "hanging out" some might say. Anyway, here are a few random pics of us doing the regular:

Mr. Dang got a pic of us in the process of making September playdough: apple pie playdough :) More on that next time.
Have a great weekend!
