Monday Funday

Today was day 4 of learning with sheep. I did a craft with little Abe that involved working on shapes, colors, crafting, a little bit of exercise and counting. I laid out a bunch of shapes on a chair in the kitchen. I drew the outline of a sheep on a sheet of newspaper at the table. Little Abe got to "pick out a green circle" from the chair, climb up at the table, put a drop of glue on the sheep and glue the green circle to the sheep. We did this for a long time with the different shapes and colors and he counted all the shapes when he was done gluing them on. He LOVES using glue! He's also doing great with identifying shapes.

Our cat enjoyed the craft too

Later we went for a walk around the block (which ended up taking 30 minutes). There's a lot of snow out there right now and today is pretty cold but it's sunny and not windy so I just bundled him up good. It's always good to get out of the house especially since there's apparently another arctic blast heading our way. He enjoyed walking on the mounds of snow between the sidewalk and the road. He enjoyed cracking ice with his feet where there were thin patches of ice on the sidewalk. We found different foot prints; prints from people, dogs, cats, and bunnies. We even found bunny poop and bunny fur. He also collected some sticks, a flower, and a leaf while we walked. I hadn't expected it to take as long as it did but it was a fun adventure.

Today is NO SPEND day 15 for the year. I'm hoping for another no spend tomorrow too. Fingers crossed.

Average daily spending for 2015: $17.75


  1. So you are teaching not only little Abe, but the cat as well :)
