"Friday called. She's on her way and she is bringing wine."
The Covid-19 or Corona Virus has gotten everyone panicking and worrying. Rightfully so to a cautious extent. While I don't have any Corona and lime at home, there is wine. Which made me realize that this is the first week for some mommas and dads to have homeschooled their kiddos for the first week in our area. Now we have chosen to homeschool our littles. Crazy choice I know. Call me certified.
Now on to the story. This is a cute book that kind of follows "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie." by Laura Numeroof and illustrated by Felicia Bond. Just aged up to a momma's perspective. The book is "If You Give a Mommy a Glass of Wine" by Renee Charytan and illustrated by Rick Van Hattum. I was asked three times by our littles if I colored the book. They love the illustrations. Each one asked to look at the book. Well why not, they know momma likes some grape juice.
A word of forewarning there is some pointing, shhhh-ing, and having to chat with a little. They did promise to be good. LOL For them it went really well. I did miss one page in the book. Ooops! Sophie told me about it. See if you can figure it out.
There was no morning grape juice for me. Drinking straight up coffee. Soon to be switching to some tea. The gorgeous cup was created by Jennifer Hotaling. I love it! My favorite colors to boot. (Have a couple others and my kids claimed them.)
Find humor while you are home. Love your family, cuddle your babies, call your parents and those you cannot be with right at this moment. Don't forget about face time, too. Just make sure people know that they are loved. Be safe and take care of yourself. Light and Love.
Oh boy! Looking at our little guys it isn't surprising to see that they are completely competing against each other for the shaggy puppy contest. It is a close tie between the two of them. However, momma is tired of asking "did you use shampoo?" and having to send them back in to do it again. Check out the pictures and let us know who looked shaggier, Connor or James.
Connor's hair is thick and course. He has a lot of it, too. It isn't surprising that in two weeks time it will look like a trim is needed. That is why this little guy is our monkey boy, along with ears and cute smile.
James has thick hair but finer then Connor's. Still we were way past hair cut time. He definitely needed to be found as the banks were getting ready to take over his eyes. What a handsome boy our young man is.
What length do you like to keep your little guys hair at? Do you taper cut? We are still getting used to the clipping techniques. Not in love with the new Conair clippers that I picked up. What is your favorite brand?
"The wonders of nature are endless."
Since so many schools are closed down to the Covid 19 pandemic many sites and teachers are offering free lessons. We homeschool and love finding new things to learn. Changing how we teach here and there keeps the kids more engaged and less likely to get bored.
The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden's is hosting a different animal every day this week for the children to watch and learn about. There is a quiz, art challenge, or project to do with each one. Today was make a porcupine. Of course each child was up and ready to do this craft. We used mixed media between paper, yarn, clay, pencils, markers, and pens. Each one is different from the next. The kiddos made videos to talk about their porcupine with some facts on them. Some of the facts are accurate and some are a little made up. See Chloe's Easter Bunny/porcupine combo.
