Introducing new themes.

One of my favorite things about Mother Goose Time is the themes, it keeps things feeling fresh! I am always looking forward to looking through the new box and finding more about the months theme. They have all been great and so fun. We have obviously enjoyed some more than others, which also means that some are hardest to move on from.

On the day that we are introducing a new theme I usually spend the drive home from grandmas house talking about the new theme and explaining that we are done with the theme we had been working on (we homeschool in the afternoon after I get home from work). Sometimes Chloe is excited to move on and others it takes a couple of days ...Ocean Commotion for example was one that took us a while to get over and 2 new themes later she still sometimes refers to the new theme with Commotion at the end - Alphabet House Commotion. haha.

Organizing Mother Goose Time

It has taken me a couple of boxes to figure out the best way to sort my self out for a new month and theme of Mother Goose Time. I think I finally figured out the best way!

When you first receive your shipment and open the box it can be a bit overwhelming because there is just SO MUCH in there and it's all packaged in little bags. The bags are extremely helpful because they come labeled with the date of the month you will be using it and all the materials you need for that day.

A new chef in the kitchen

I love cooking and baking and ever since Chloe was born I could not wait to have her help me in the kitchen.

I know that growing up to help in the kitchen all that was needed was a dining room chair, but I have very nice hard to clean dining room chairs and they are also not the best to stand on..anyway...this is where the Guidecraft Step-up Kitchen helper comes in with all it's glory.

Seriously, the best money I have spent in a long time. Trust me, I have a problem with spending so this is a big bold statement and I stand by it. In the picture Above you can see Chloe (3 years old) This picture is fantastic to give you an idea of the size and how much room there is on the platform. I have no fears of her accidentally stepping off the side!

Since we got the kitchen helper, Chloe is obsessed with helping in the kitchen (can be a bad thing, especially when I just want to whip up a quick meal but I've had worse problems in my life.)

We will share on of Chloe's favorite recipes and it's so easy that she can pretty much do it herself!

Girls weekend!

This past weekend JP had a Pistol instructors course, which meant GIRLS WEEKEND!

We spent our day crafting our beautiful button Tree. I actually got the inspiration to this from a Pin on Pinterest. The pin was an actual adult project but I knew that anything that involved an insane amount of glue was right down Chloe's preferred route so I went ahead and had her to it.

I painted the tree with some empty branches and she spent a good while just gluing buttons on there. I love the way it came out. Very colorful.
