When I asked the kids what they wanted to learn about for letter E, they said everything! We chatted about earthquakes and elephants. Did you know there are only 3 species of elephants in the world? I did not know that. We learned about Thomas Edison and all the things cool things he invented. One of those being motion pictures...which led to a discussion and then creation of a mini flip book. This is my favorite. When things we read about or watch turn into so much more. We also did some exercise! And even though I had more E stuff planned, they spent the rest of the day playing with their friend, Mia, as they don't see her often. To me fun with friends is just as important as school time. And that's what I want this summer to be about...a good balance of all the things.

|They took turns demonstrating an exercise or move and |
then the others had to do the exact same move.
|It made for lots of tumbles and laughs.|
|After lots of exercises they just wanted to be silly :)|
We ended the day with two soccer games. Chris and I had to split up as they over lapped. I got to watch all of Vann's and the last 15 minutes of Chayce's. It was a great day!
