Chickadee Thursday

Today we had our annual November field trip to Cahokia Mounds. It was a bit chilly, but Chickadee still enjoyed the climb to the top of Monk’s Mound.

What she really loved, though, was seeing lots of deer!

Today is Moose’s birthday, and Chickadee always loves being a part of a celebration!

Bonus picture time! Chickadee is a huge fan of those themed cardboard backdrops that stores like to use to advertise new movies. I’ve taken her picture with Frozen, Star Wars, and Lego Batman versions, and those are just the ones I’ve shared on Chickadee Thursday…there have been others! So when we stumbled across a Cars 3 backdrop at Walmart yesterday, she had to stop and take her picture with both sides of it:

I love how everything is fun to her!

Just like we did last November, today we visited Creve Coeur Park, where we enjoyed time on the playground, had a picnic lunch, and walked the 3.7 mile trail around the lake. It was a beautiful November day, and Chickadee had a great time!

Today we visited Howdershell Park in Hazelwood, MO. Last month, they opened a Ninja Warrior training structure, and I promised the children that when it cooled off, we would try it out. Chickadee is really too small for most of the apparatuses, but she loved showing off her muscles!

Last month (or maybe it was in August), I received this cool little Lego set free with a purchase. It has all kind of little learning activities, including making letters and numbers out of Lego bricks, and it’s just perfect for Chickadee to use while working on her letter of the week!

This week was all about the letter “P” and Chickadee enjoyed making it using just 10 Lego bricks, along with some other letters, numbers, and an adorable little giraffe!

I love finding fun little things to add to her lessons!

It was a bit rainy this morning, but that didn’t, if you’ll excuse the expression, dampen Chickadee’s spirits…plus, the weather went perfectly with her new London shirt!

Chickadee got to playing a jumping game to practice some of the letter sounds she’s learned so far. She’s a bit blurry, but that’s just because she’s such a great jumper!
