I was in the other room when I heard The Bug say "Help, I'm Stuck!" I go running in to see that he had taken a large wad of packing tape and stuck it to the side of my kitchen island. He had intentionally backed into it and "stuck" himself to the tape.

When The Boyscout was little, he always used to pick dandelions and bring them to me. He hasn't done that in a few years now, but the other day this little boy knocked on the back door, held out his fistful of yellow flowers and said "For you Mama."

The Bug is 35 months old
We spent the last three weeks going over weather for Tot School. This was perfect as we had 90 degree days, frosty cold days and lots of rain and storms to observe. Warning, there are a lot of pictures in this post!
Like his sister, The Bug is showing an early preference for math-related activities. He enjoyed a number of activities including:
|Counting how many raindrops.|
|Counting and adding the proper number card.|
|Matching a picture to the proper shape.|
|Sorting rainclouds into small, medium and large.|
We hosted some friends for a science playdate one day. Along with talking about the weather cycle, we did a few rain-cloud related experiments. This one with the shaving cream and food coloring was a HUGE hit with The Bug. We redid it several times at home over the week.
|We also did some hot and cold sorting.|
|Dotting stamping letter F for flower.|
|Dot stamping the letter F raindrops only.|
|Dot stamping the letter R for raincloud.|
|He played with out alphabet puzzle many times.|
|Sorting lowercase and capital letter Fs.|
|Doing prewriting tracing sheets.|
|More sorting, this time lowercase and capital Rs. He was so proud of himself!|
