Day 240 - Kitty Pat-A-Cake

A while back, there was a video getting passed around where some guys did a voice over to some cats playing what looks like pat-a-cake.  It was pretty funny and, as you can see from the below, the boys agreed!

Day 237 - A Day at the Track

We got to go do something pretty cool today - the boys got to drive quarter midget race cars!  All by themselves.  Crazy!!!  They had a blast, and it was so fun to see them so excited.  There may have been an incident with a certain brown-haired boy (who was so excited that his brain was having trouble focusing on more than one thing at a time) that involved a barricade and a race car, but I won't name names.  As you can imagine, with 6-year-old first-time drivers, the cars don't go very fast so everyone was fine, including the race car.  Phew!

Day 235 - Good Boys

One of the strategies that Jack and Owen's teacher uses to encourage good choices in class is a rainbow-colored clip chart.  Each child starts in the middle on Monday, and as they make good or bad choices, they clip up or down.  If they clip up enough to move off the chart by Friday, then they earn a prize.  Earlier in the week, we had to have a conversation reminding the boys of the proper way to behave while sitting during carpet time, i.e. staying calm, quiet, and not being a distraction.  I am very proud to say that they listened, and did such a good job the rest of the week that they both clipped off the chart and won a prize today.  Good job, boys!

Showing off their bubbles and little sticky thing-a-ma-jigger!
