Thursday- Grandparents Day

Well today was Grandparents day at Adams preschool. I drove and brought his other grandma he calls her Janmum. We got there and Adam ran right to me. The teacher said Adam could barely sit still knowing Nana was coming to school. The teacher took this picture for me. See how big I am, well you won't be seeing that for much longer, thank God.
We did go out into the play yard for a little while. The teachers made sure to put sunscreen on all the kids before they could go outside. Adam was playing in this little play house and had a blast. Isn't this a great picture. I think it will be one of my favorites.

Here is the whole class getting ready for snack time. There are 6 kids , 5 boys and 1 girl. Notice she is sitting next to Adam? Uh oh he is is fathers son. Watch out ladies.
Yesterday Adam and his class went apple picking. So today was all about Apples. First they played a game. They laid this tree on the floor and poured 3 colors of pompoms (red, yellow and green) to represent the apples they picked, and they have 3 color coordinated bowls and plastic tweezer like tongs. The kids took turns picking up a pompom with the tweezers and dropping it in the matching bowl. Adam did all yellow. I don't think any of the kids picked green, weird huh?
After the game they divided the kids into 2 groups of three. One group had a taste test with hot and cold Apple cider. Oddly all the kids said they preferred the hot cider. The other group had an apple taste test, they each got a slice of a red, yellow and green apple and they put a smiley face on a chart if they liked them. All colors got a smiley face. Then they switched.

The kids also sang a song about apples... I video taped that so here it is. Hope it makes you smile, it sure made me smile.

I didn't get in any knitting today except for the lines on the KAL I am working on. I did get in a lot of walking though. Long day and I am tired again. I have much more energy but I am tired when night time arrives for sure.

Have a great night and see you all tomorrow.

Enjoy a delicious apple and think of Adam.

So that's Janmum. Well, he seems sure glad to see his nana!! But what's with the red pants. LOOSE those this weekend, okay? Cute song.

Hummmm, he's the ladies man. Oh dar.

Yes, you look thinner. Would you give it a rest. You look great.

Yeah, no wonder he ran straight to you, you're the SMILING grandparent. Who DOESN'T want one of those?!?

Grandparents' Day looks like so much fun!!

I just want you to know this--your smile is worth more than a million dollars to me!! When I look at you and see that smile, you just make me smile--even if I really don't feel like it.

And what I said yesterday--about 40 pounds--oops, I weighed myself yesterday at work--make that more like 60--maybe even 65! How did that happen?

So, can I be in on this with you?

Need to think of a way to make myself accountable--we could be accountability partners--although you seem to be doing well without one!

Get some sleep, some rest--talk to you later.

Looks like you had a fun time with Adam at school. I like the apple tree lesson. That was a good idea on the teacher's part.

You are looking good and on track to looking better.
