Alphabet Adventure: E & F Week

Just what I hoped would not happen, has….it is F week and there is still a fever in this house!!  Seriously.  I’m not sure what else to say about this except that it is just not fair to have a child throwing up on me on my thirtieth birthday ;-).  I was selfish, I cried, I got over it, but this is the second time I’ve had to cancel blueberry picking for fever, boooooo.

Our E days have been quite low maintenance due to Nate getting sick again.  My husband works for Silverado which is an amazing company that serves people with family members suffering from Alzheimer’s & Dementia.  We love his job for so many reasons, one being that we get to expose the children to the elderly on a monthly basis.  Our plan was to do a service project with our friends at The Woodlands Silverado Community but we will have to postpone this so we don’t give the virus to them.  If you are looking for a way to live out missions locally (beyond you neighbors), a senior living center like Silverado offers activities that you can do with the residents such as gardening, cooking, games, salon/ manicures, woodshop, etc.  And, they adore children…..for those suffering with A/D it is such good therapy for them to see the littles.  What did we manage to do for E??  We had an EGG taste test!!  We made hard-boiled, fried, scrambled & omelets and everyone picked their favorite, it was actually really fun (and a little “Runaway Bride-ish” of us!!) We went to the Elementary School park where Logan will start Kindergarten in September, he was thrilled to explore & dream about all the fun to be had.  We did our E Bible lesson & scripture memory from Hunt’s book (which I am loving so much I think I will have to blog separately about it!).  Tonight we poured over The Eleventh Hour by Greame Base, thank you Amy!!

Other E Books: The Easter Egg Farm by Mary Jane Auch, Ernest and Elston by Laura T. Barnes, Elliot’s Emergency by Andrea Beck and Elephants on Board by Suse MacDonald, The Earth and I by Frank Asch, Eyes and Ears by Seymour Simon, Ella the Elegant Elephant by Carmela & Steven D’amico.

We have high hopes for F (don’t I keep saying this?!).  It happens to be Father’s Day on Sunday, so I’m lovin’ how perfectly our Alphabet is working into the summer ;-).  We have a book that we add pictures & letters to every year for Daniel so we will be working on that this week.  Our outing will be to our local fire department for a special tour (treats in hand for our local firemen…who have been to our house, haha!!)!  We are having a Family night where we will be playing football, doing bubbles with fly swatters, making forts, playing flashlight tag & finger painting (you want to come over don’t you)!!  Our faith lesson will be #14 on forts from Faith-filled moments on top of our normal F lesson from Hunt.

F books are plentiful: Franklin series by Paulette Bourgeois, The Very Busy Farm by Alicia Zadrozny, Richard Scarry’s The Firefighters’ Busy Day, Frog & Toad Series by Arnold Lobel, There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly by Simms Taback, The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister, Show Each Other Forgiveness by Melody Carlson, Fred the Firefighter by Jo Litchfield, Full House: An Invitation To Fractions by Dayle Ann Dodds, Faraway Farm by Ian Whybrow, Fish is Fish by Leo Lionni, Into the Forest by Anthony Browne, The Firefighters by Sue Whiting, Farmer Joe & the Mustic Show by Tony Mitton, Friday My Radio Flyer Flew by Zachary Pullen, Crazy Like a Fox: A Simile Story by Loreen Leedy, To Fly: The Story of The Wright Brothers by Wendie C. Old, Flip, Float, Fly: Seeds On The Move by JoAnn Early Macken, Fantastic Feats and Failures by YES Mag, Fox by Kate Banks, The Farm Team by Linda Bailey, A Friend by Anette Bley.  Happy Reading 🙂

    Bell! Thanks so much for posting the ABC stuff. I have been wanting to do something with Rylan this summer but can’t seem to scrape up any free time to plan it. Your ideas are amazing!
