A Glimpse of Wednesday

It’s been raining here off and on all week.  Our pool was almost completely full on Tuesday night.

I went outside to feel to cooler air and take a few photos of the rain and the pool.  It made me thankful for our cozy,dry house.  I love rainy nights.


Cutie Pie’s teacher has been doing a unit on the five senses with the children in her class.  On Wednesday they were covering the sense of smell.  I volunteered to do the Kool-Aid watercolor activity that I had done a while back with Cutie Pie.  She happily invited me to come in and said that it sounded way more fun than coloring with smelly markers like she had planned.

I took two children aside at a time to paint with dissolved Kool-Aid.  I drew fruit shapes to match each scent and had the children decide which color went with each fruit based on the smell of the “paint”.  The children seemed to really enjoy this activity and could not wait to smell each of the colorful cups of Kool-Aid.  The room smelled so good!

Cutie Pie was thrilled to have his mommy visit his classroom.  He kept running up to give me hugs!


I carpool with a friend of mine.  Her middle child and Cutie Pie attend the same preschool so we take turns driving them to and from school.  Wednesday was my turn since my friend’s oldest child came down with a stomach bug.  I snapped the photo above of the two kiddos chilling out to a movie on the way home.  They look so darn cute, I can’t stand it!


Wildman’s buddy came over to play after school on Wednesday too.  The boys managed to litter toys from one end of the house to the other in a matter of minutes.  Such is the nature of play dates, I suppose.  My inner neat freak was crying out the whole time but I refrained from cleaning until Wildman’s friend had been picked up 🙂


There you have it.  A random grouping of events from mid-week.  Fascinating, I know!
