Last week's shenanigans

We've been spending a lot of time outside lately... OBVIOUSLY... so regular themes/lessons have been put on the back burner. Mommy's been working on a great summer schedule for us that'll allow us PLENTY of outside exploration time along with a very short Montessori lesson. BUT until then, here's what we were up to last week.

Mommy made me a worm habitat. We collected a few worms from the garden and placed them in a jar alternating soil and sand, so we could see their tunnel trails... it was awesome... until Daddy discovered yesterday they were dead... oy. For the record there were holes in the lid.
Mommy decided to clear out some of our toys... we still own them... but weren't playing with them. We now only have one toy per opening on our shelves... this has prompted us to actually play with them... Our new rainbow music that Mommy made a la her frapaccino bottles. :)

Water play begins!
Our strawberries are poppin'. We've gotten at least this many everyday for about a week now from our little garden... AWESOME.

Oh! I'm sorry about your worms. Bummer! :(

I love the mortar & pestle idea.....Nora is always making "concoctions" in tupperwares that we discover weeks later, half-composted and liquidy...ugh. The mortar and pestle sounds much more pleasant. :)
