F week

Despite it being "F" week I had somewhat high hopes for it, mingled with lots of work and an extra busy husband - boy its a good thing I'm NOT pregnant (not that we are trying).

Library Day! We got the usual, way too many books.
We read: Feathers for Lunch by Lois Ehlert
Miss Mingo and the First Day of School by Jamie Harper (LOVED)
Pink! by Lynne Rickards
For Pete's Sake by Ellen Stoll Walsh

And since it was Flamingo/Feather day, it was...Aviary Day too! Javin and daddy took a nice little ride over to Liberty Park and walked around the Aviary and checked out all the birds. When Javin got home he told me he saw the "Fa-ning-os!". So cute!

Aquarium day! We were suppose to talk all about Fish today, but Javin was more interested in the Frogs at the Aquarium than the Fish.
We read: Big Al by Andrew Clements
Flotsam by David Wiesner
The Rainbow Fish by
Hop Jump by Ellen Stoll Walsh
Beware of the Frog by William Bee (LOVED)
We ate French Fries and chicken nuggets for lunch. When we do get  fast food I ONLY get him apple slices, so the fries were a BIG treat.

Counting Frogs

Riding Frogs

Listening to Frogs

This was suppose to be our Frog day, but it lost a little power when the day before had so many Frogs in it.
We read: The Biggest Frog In Australia by Susan Roth
Do Lions Live on Lily Pads by Melanie Walsh (simple, but cute)
What a Party by Sandy Asher
Wanda and the Frogs by Barbara Azore
Once There was a Bull...(Frog) by Rick Walton (Cute)
Five Nice Mice by Chisato Tashiro

We also talk about Forests and Fall (you know, Autumn). We ate some Franks (aka. hot dogs) and watched Finding Nemo.


We read these while we (Javin) sat on the potty, bare bummed (nothing came out, we're just practicing):
Frederick by Leo Lionni
Old Black Fly by Jim Aylesworth
The Foggy Foggy Forest by Nick Sharratt (LOVED)
Eating the Alphabet by Lois Ehlert (LOVED)
The Foot Book by Dr. Seuss (LOVED)

We ate lots of Fruit and talked about our F body parts (Feet and Fingers) and did some Finger painting of Frogs.


We went outside on the patio and wrote out some Fs in chalk until we got swarmed by bees. I got Frustrated with the bees and then with Javin and then we went inside so I could have a time-out. We discussed what a Farm is and what kind of animals we'd find there, like maybe some Foxes. And we read:
Faraway Farm by Ian Whybrow
Herd of Cows! Flock of Sheep by Rick Walton (cute)
Crazy like a Fox by Loreen Leedy
Another Fine Mess by Tony Bonning
Fox and Fluff by Shutta Crum (Cute)

All in all, it was a pretty good week, despite my tantrums followed closely by Javin's. I'm really enjoying this memory making process :)
