Informal playtime

I have lost my homeschooling mojo. I haven't devoted the time to it that I would like. I need to do that this week; just get some crafts and lessons together. Even though we haven't done anything "formal" (and I'm really not stressing myself out over this), we did do some reading and playing today. 

These books are awesome:

There are others also. We have the animals one that we are going to read tomorrow. Jude and I went through this one today and he loved it. He loves being able to find each picture and I am sure it works on cognitive skills somehow. I know it helps them pay attention to detail, which Jude is not very good at. He did well, though, finding the different pictures. We also read a couple of other story books too, and he liked those as well. 

We played hide and seek, which they loved, and was Jude's idea. And we wrestled, of course. Can't have playtime without wrestling! 

This book was really cute:

There was some rhyming in it, which my kiddos always like. I personally loved the story and the ending. I always love children's books where it seems as though things are a certain way and then it turns out they are not. It makes me think of how we perceive things, and how that perception is usually wrong. Living in reality is always best!

Today is a bread making and laundry day, so that's what I've been doing besides tending to the kiddos. Its been a busy day, but a good one...for a Monday!
