Tot School
Our week in TOTSchool.
Emily is 31 months old.

Emily and I enjoyed playing with Juliette! This week I took a picture of Emily and myself loving on Juliette :0)

Emily and I spent a lot of time in the kitchen. We baked, apple pancakes, apple bread, and apple pie. Emily also helped me dry basil from our garden.

We continued working on the letter Aa this week. I hid the magnetic Aa's in our rice bucket and Emily had a great time finding them. It was a beautiful day so we were able to do this project outside. Juliette really wanted to get in on the action. We can't wait till she can really join in on our projects!
Emily started a Mommy and Me 2 year old program at a local church. We go for and hour and a half each week. They have a sand table, lots of toys to play with, a play dough station, puzzle station and craft for the week. Then they have a Jesus time, snack and story time. In addition to a short separation period where the children play while the assistant watches them and the parents can discuss any issues related to 2 year olds. This is Emily outside of my parent's house after we dropped of Juliette on her first day. I am excited about this time to spend with just Emily!

We spent some time at my mom's house and she has some really great toys! Here Emily is working on a giant safari floor puzzle while Juliette watches. Emily has a great time working on this giant puzzle.

For our weekly stART project emily practiced cutting out pictures. I cut the pieces into wide strips and Emily had to cut around them. She did a great job! Check out her final project here.

Emily also really enjoyed playing with these BRIO and Thomas The Train sets at my mom's house. These were my youngest brothers and I remember having so much fun making all different layouts with them. My mom and I set up the trains and Emily spent a good hour playing with the green train, moving it all over the tracks and telling a whole story to go with it.

Our favorite books from this week:

That's great y'all will be able to have some alone one-on-one time!

My 2 year old has a train track like that, but so far all he wants to do is tear up the track his big brother makes.

I am so glad you left a comment on my blog because it led me to yours. I love the stART and hope to participate soon! I also am very jealous of the mommy and me class at your church and think I need to suggest something to the powers that be at mine (but that will end up with me organizing it :)- never mind!

How great that you are able to spend that time with Emily one on one - it sounds like a wonderful program. And babies are so much fun to love on - I love that picture of the 3 of you!

My mother in law has a house full of great toys too! She saved everything. How nice to have such caring grandparents.

It's so nice that your family is close, can take care of Juliette and entertain Emily with those wonderful toys. The picture on the first day of church school is so cute - I just love Emily's hair.
