I paired some pumpkin picks with floral foam and had an instant fine motor skills activity. Princess LOVED this and put them in and out of the foam several times.

Today we toured Chick-Fil-A. It was so fun and we learned a lot.
* All their food is fresh. None frozen.
* Been voted best drive thru in fast food for 7 years.
* They were the first restaurant in malls.
Princess made her own ice cream cone with the store owner. We went into the kitchen and got to see how it all works.
You can call Chick-Fil-A and request a backstage tour too!

Princess is learning quantity. We have a huge basket of penguins and we use them with quantity cards. The cards have big dots on them ranging from 1 to 10. By placing 1 penguin on 1 dot, Princess learns that numbers have value.
This will show her that when we count we are not just saying 1, 2, 3.... but that those numbers have meaning.

Princess was more interested in how many she could squeeze into one hand than anything else...but this exercise was fun and held her attention for a few minutes, which is huge considering she didn't like any other activities I put out for her today.
Son just took my phone and typed this----- xiXot, oy7.
Guess that means "hello".

Last week we started this act of kindness, but couldn't finish it until today.
I thought of 3 things pertaining to the letter E:
So we decided to mail a small package to our 2 great-grandmothers. We always get mail from them and I know they must get lonely sometimes.
Since they don't use the internet, we printed out a bunch of photos from Humble Hearts blog and wrote a letter explaining what we do during the day. Then Princess colored each of them a picture and decorated the pictures with stickers.
After all that...we went to the Post Office. I LOVE the post office! I love the way it smells and how old some of the buildings are. I adore the P.O. boxes too. I have seen some old P.O. box doors for sale on Ebay and I have contemplated buying one, but they are like 30 bucks and I keep changing my mind.
So here it is:
