Today was a great day for forts!

It is starting to get warm outside, around 90 today, so we are trying to find some fun indoor activities. John is one of those kids that would probably be willing to die of heat stroke if it meant he could play outside, so I have to come up with something interesting to keep him indoors. Today's interesting activity was forts.

We also listened to way too much Raffi. John is very into Tingalayo, which is about a little donkey with a very unusual name :) I was never into Raffi as a kid. In fact, I don't really remember listened to many kid tunes. Josh, on the other hand, knows all the kid stuff. So, John loves Raffi and I have to deal with it. That's ok though because listening to a 2 year old say Tingalayo is worth any price :)

Now, if you are interested in bad ass kids music...Dan Zanes is where it's at!

Also, I started the Tell Your Story art journaling class from the girls at Red Velvet Art! I am so excited that today was the first journal prompt. I finished mine tonight and I love the results. It is supposed to be about A New Season.

Here are the other two pages I have created so far.

I am pretty excited about the results.
I hope everyone had a lovely Monday!
