What we're up to this Wednesday

 Hello! Today is Wednesday, but we didn't get around to taking a nature walk today. When we woke up this morning there was snow on the ground and more coming down! It looked so pretty! The girls ate their breakfast as fast as they could and then we bundled them up so they could go play in the snow. They had a good time trying to catch snowflakes on their tongues and running around making footprints in the snow. Living where we live, we don't really get much snow, if any, and so any little bit that shows up is a big deal for the girlies.
Now as I write this the snow is all melted and turned to rain, but it is still quite chilly outside. And although we could have still gone for a walk, we decided to stay home and do some fun stuff inside, plus we started work on the chicken coop today. Hooray! We'll get to bring our chickens home soon!
 This week our letter that we are focusing on is "R". We got out some trays with rice to practice writing and drawing in, and then of course just having plain, old fun. We also got out a couple other different types of rice to look at and then the girls experimented with playing with the rice using their feet. They spent a good 45 minutes or so playing in the rice!
 We also painted rainbows to add to our alphabet book that we are making. Later we are going to add some cotton balls for clouds around the bottom of the rainbows. After they painted their page for their books, they painted quite a few other pictures for our patio door "gallery". :)
We've also spent a lot of time reading books about rabbits, roosters and rocks that we found at the library yesterday. 
I hope you all are having a wonderful Wednesday!
