We had a nice long easter break, (and believe me, it was needed... mostly by mom LOL). Today we decided to get back into the swing of things for another month or so until we wrap up our Kindergarten year for good. I think we'll have to have a special celebration when we are done. Any ideas out there?
Since it was our first day back, we took it pretty slow. First we had swimming lessons (the kids are getting so brave in the water.. this was a great thing to do for them!! Z even dipped half of his face into the water today. big boy!!). When we got home, we toured around the yard looking at signs of spring and new growth in our plants. Then we came in and read The dragon-fly Children and the Snapping Turtle, and then looked up in our books about dragonflies. We learned that they are born in the water, they eat bugs and even tadpoles, and they have 6 legs and 4 wings. E decided she wanted to paint some dragonflies so we got out our water colors and set to work:
