|Chase loving Dylan, preparing for brotherhood!|
They say that April Showers bring May Flowers and there is no doubt that there will be some blooming taking place. There is so much transition taking place at Little Foot this month.
Congratulations to Big Sisters Anna, Mila and Sienna. Anna welcomed a baby brother about a month ago, and both Mila and Sienna welcomed a baby sister and a baby brother this past week! We can't wait to watch these new little ones grow and develop, there are a couple more that are still warming in the oven, and we are very excited about some of them joining us later in the year. We are also expecting some new grown up faces at Little Foot this month and we are saying good-bye to one that is close and dear to us.
Please join us Thursday, April 16th at 5pm for a special celebration to honor Monica Cuellar.
|We will miss you Monica!!!|
Katrina, our new teacher's assistant, will be visiting us starting on Tuesday this week, she celebrates her birthday on Monday, Happy Birthday Trina! She will joining us for a couple of hours everyday so that we can all get to know her. She will begin training the following week for a few hours a day and join us full time April 20th. Elizabeth, our temporary teacher's assistant, will be visiting us the week of April 27th for a couple of hours to get to know us and begin some light training a few times a week for a couple of hours. Her hours will gradually increase, as Kimberly's belly expands, and she will be starting full time the beginning of June when Kimberly starts to take it easy before the baby comes.
I hope everyone has a nice Spring Break, we'll see you soon!
Important Dates to Remember:

For our color experiment, the kids got to get their hands dirty! We started out by talking about colors and how to make new ones. How do you make other colors and what colors do they make?
After the mixing of two colors was done they got to see how the colors had change and made a new color. They were able to use the paint on their paper any way they like and all of them decided to make hand prints! We made a total of four colors that day.
Building with Blocks:
|The ladies working as a team.|
|It was a bit wobbly.|
|They each took turns trying to make it taller.|
|It had a hard time staying in one place.|
|They couldn't quite get it past a certain point...|
|They gave up after it fell down a few times.|
|No worries, time for the cars.....|
|And the people to come out and play.|
Let's Make Foam:
We realized that the shaving cream that we had available to us was a gel, so we weren't sure if the combination would work out. We usually have the kids pour and mix but we had to do it for them this time to test out the portions and get the gel to lather into the typical cream texture.
A kids were a little skeptical at first.
They really enjoyed it! We explained that it wasn't for eating and the kids were in agreement...except for one (he's in the highchair above) who couldn't help but taste it! He didn't like it, we washed him up and he was ready to get back at it, and his friends were really great about reminding him "Not in your mouth!"
