Puffy Paint

I am glad that Mr. Burrito is into arts and crafts now.   He used to ignore us when we encouraged him to do arts and crafts with us but now he is very interested.  They used their Puffy Paints  on this particular activity instead of using crayons.

Top of the World

The photos below were taken at Janoski's Farm  last weekend.  We  spent  almost three hours in the  farm, the kids had so much fun  doing  a lot of stuff.
Jumping over the baby bear or cub.
Mr. Burrito  kept saying "I am the King of the World" but Ms. Burrito  was just  so happy to be on top of the world.  It's very satisfying to see your children overjoyed  with what  they do, just to see their smiles melts every worries that every parents has.

Kool Katz

I receive a free copy of Groove Kid Nation's Music in Motion called Kool Katz.  I played it  at home yesterday and  my  Burritos did their groovy moves.  This  CD is all about musical  instruments, a great and groovy way for kids to learn music.  I  just wish that this is available in VCD so the kids can also learn the moves that they are portraying in the songs.  But overall, as a Mom, I like their music.  A pretty good beat for the kids to stay in their feet and  dance as they listen to the catchy music.  Thank you so much Groove Kid Nation for this free copy of kids song!
If you want to check out this CD, just visit the link I have provided above.   I highly recommend this.  It's fun to do for the kids during weekends.

Disclaimer:  I did not receive any compensation for this post , however, I receive a free copy of the product. Therefore this is not a sponsored post,  opinion is 100% mine.

Johnny Appleseed Day

I am sure that  people who love  apples  knows the origin of the Appleseed Day  celebration.  I just learned that when my children started going to school.  This  celebration is dedicated to a man named Jonathan  Chapman, an american pioneer nursery man who introduced  apple trees to large parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and West Virginia.  He became a legend and  known as Johnny Appleseed because of  his  project of planting an apple seed  everywhere he went.  
Every class  has activities like making caramel apples and did some crafts.
Thanks for commenting.

Little Girl Misses Mommy

While I was waiting for the other Mommies to arrive at the school's cafeteria, I took advantage of the time by taking pictures of the arts/drawings that are posted on the wall.  The librarian at the school is also the art teacher, she is  member of an art  organization and she  always encourages  the kids to practice their talents.
My daughter told me a couple of weeks ago that the art teacher saw her sketch  and ask her if she can  use  it as exhibit in an art show.  Man, that  motivate Ms. Burrito to sketch some more.  She told me that if she should have known that it was going to be displayed, she could  have made it better.  
She said that she  was just sketching this because the little girl that was in her mind was missing  her Mom.  "That's why, she looks sad" she said.

Kids at their Best

Mr. Burrito is getting serious with his study now, he realized that it is a real deal now and  he can no longer slack off  just like when I was teaching him at home.  I am glad that Ms. Burrito is very much willing to help hi little brother  learn how to read.  Here's my kids at theiir best, reading books together.
Below is their progress report.
Ms. Burritos report.
 I am so surprised that he  is doing really well, he even have an outstanding  one.  I guess I underestimated   my son's  ability.

Purses and Shoes

 She's only six but her love for purses and shoes is already showing.  She sees this commercials on TV  and she  would always say "I will buy that when I grow up."  The photos below were taken after church last Sunday.
She calls her savings her "Grown Up  Money".  I think she will be like me whose  a Saver and the little boy will be like his Dad, a spender.
 Modeling her hello kitty  skirt and top, lunch bag, necklace, and hair bows.
