So lately Audrey and I have been doing weekly science projects. Just small little projects that aren't too complicated or messy. With all these science projects we totally needed to make a volcano. I always thought it was super complicated... turns out it was pretty easy to make. All we used was...
1. a small jar
2. some clay to cover the jar (not needed though)
3. red food coloring (not needed though)
4. a couple tablespoons of baking soda
5. a quarter cup of vinegar (we used apple cider vinegar... it was all we had)
That is all we needed to create a volcano and make it erupt. Just put a little bit of baking soda in the jar and pour vinegar in the jar and watch it erupt. It was a fun project for both of us... even Brian watched the fun. I look forward to more projects with her :)

This past Saturday was Audrey's very first ballet class. I was beyond excited and the best part was... she was equally excited. She could not wait to put her dance outfit on, she loved it. This was Audrey's first time in a actual class setting with students and a teacher. She listened to her teacher and tried with all her might to stay focused, she may have fell off the wagon a few times. Overall though she did great and looked so cute doing it. I love that we have a tiny little dancer...

Awhile back I saw on pinterest DIY outdoor kitchens for kids... I thought this would be perfect for Audrey since she loves being outdoors and loves to cook. I mentioned this one morning to my husband and boom...two hours later it was finished. We took the following weekend to paint it pink and when she woke up from her nap we surprised her with it. I am thankful for my husband and how handy he is, this skill is so useful and saves money. All of the wood was from scraps and the paint was from a previous project. Also, homemade things are just better and more from the heart.

The sweetest gift came in the mail for Audrey the other day. It was a little bunny mask from the Littlest Crochet Shop. They have so many cute items for children made from recycled t-shirts. Such a cute eco friendly shop and perfect gifts for the holiday season. Audrey ran around the front yard with her bunny mask for good forty five minutes :)
Thanks again, Brittany and Lily.

Lately we have been staying super close to home. We are away so much during the week that during the weekends it is nice to just be home. We fill our time with staying in bed longer, slow breakfasts, lots of outdoor play and movie nights. Errands are still ran, cleaning and organizing still happen, and birthday parties and gatherings are still attended, but staying close to home just feels right for us. I'm sure we will ventured out soon because I have been craving a beach night, but for right now you can find us on the weekends at home :)

This Little Lady has been busy learning and creating. My parents are always doing little projects with her like the cats and pumpkins above and even show and tell day... Audrey brought Mr. Long that day :) Audrey also likes to cook with her Grammy, their specialty is making pudding. On my days off I like to plan little projects for Audrey and I to do...our latest was a science experiment on turning carnations different colors with food coloring. I enjoy being hands on with her learning and I know my parents do too. One of our nightly routines is doing flashcards of the alphabet for letter recognition and I just recently bought this for number recognition. It has been a fun journey so far and I can't wait for more learning.
More on school life...
