Wordless Wednesday


Publix Math Night

Tuesday was Math Night at our local Publix.  Wildman’s entire school was invited to attend the event from 4-6 PM.

We were greeted by lots of teachers from the elementary school as soon as we went inside.  Each grade had a sheet of math problems to complete based on things found in the store.  Wildman grabbed his clipboard right away and was off to work on his five questions.

How much do you weigh? (54 lbs.)

What is the shape of a soda can? (Cylinder, I don’t have a picture of this…)

How much do Publix brand hamburger buns cost? ($1.23)  Clearly we hadn’t found them yet when I took this photo 🙂

How many letters are in the first name of the sandwich maker at the deli counter? (5, her name was Jenny)

How many different kinds of Teddy Grahams are there?  What is your favorite? (4 and Honey)

After Wildman turned in his completed worksheet he got to ring up a bag of ice for my wine tasting party!  So cool!

This fun event is just one more reason why I love Publix and I love Wildman’s school!!!

Fun and Games Friday

Have you seen this crazy game?  Gassy Gus?

It was a total impulse buy in the mile-long line at Toys R Us on Black Friday.  I thought it would be good for a few laughs and, boy, was I right!  Wildman and Cutie Pie unearthed the unopened game from the closet on Wednesday and insisted that we play.  Three games and many chuckles later we were hooked 🙂  Gross but very entertaining.

What’s in Ned’s Head is another fun one from Cutie Pie’s birthday.  Thanks, Uncle Chris!  What I really like about this game is that you can totally customize it.  It comes with several blank dry erase cards that allow you to fill Ned’s head with your own objects in addition to the gross things that come with the game.

If you’re looking for a couple of new games to play with your little ones maybe you can try these.  I think boys especially like them 🙂

As it usually does, one thing lead to another and Cutie Pie’s room became an utter disaster area in less than half an hour.  But I’m glad to see that he rediscovered his train table!  He hasn’t played with it in quite some time and I was happy to see that he still enjoys it.

Happy Friday!
