In the effort to catch up on the rest of May, here's some other goings on:
Nikolai hugged Miriam and wanted me to take a picture. By the time I got my camera out, she was trying to get loose and this is what I got:
Our membership to the beloved Hands on Museum expired at the end of May, so we went one last time. Like all of our lasts, it made me sad and happy at the same time.
I planned a fun Science themed story time a few weeks back, and for the craft we did a simple vinegar and baking soda experiment. It turned out great (and not too messy!). It's times like these that I'm really sad to only be doing story time for a few more weeks. I really love it!!!
Also at work, we're all plowing straight into Summer Reading Club preparations. I'm not doing too much for it (I think they didn't want to overburden me, since we're moving soon) but one co-worker and I spent 5 hours in the last two weeks transforming two old cork boards into two Wild West themed jail cells to (to use for photos for kids). They were fun to make and it was even more fun to say "I got paid to paint a cork board to look like a jail cell today!"
Finally, we had book club last week and to balance out reading George Orwell's very heavy 1984, we met at a local ice cream place to discuss it. Book club has been one of my very favorite things about living here and it was fun to get together with everyone and eat delectable ice cream.
Alright, I think that's it! I have high hopes of blogging again soon but realistically, that might not happen. So I will blog as soon as I can!
