Lots of sweet treats this week! Our donuts were too yummy and were gone too fast to take a picture. But here we are with our 3rd birthday treat of the week!
Enjoyed the beautiful weather by reading outside!
Today we had some fun with balloons! We enjoyed keeping them off the ground and using static electricity to stick them to ourselves (and each other). :)
2nd grade is having as much fun as we can together before 3rd grade starts! Today’s nice weather was a perfect day for bubbles!
