Home Sick

I've mentioned before that we try to do a little homeschooling with Micah each day.  I keep the activities fun and try to cater them to what he is interested in.  Last week both of the boys were sick so our schedule was a little off, but we still got some things in!

Uncle Kevin got Micah a trampoline for Christmas.  We decided this was the perfect time to bring it out.  He enjoyed jumping on it for a little while.

Daddy brought out the fingerpaints one morning.  We were supposed to take Micah on his first train ride that day, but because he was sick we didn't get to.  So, Daddy said if he doesn't get to ride a train he would get to do fun train things.  So, he painted him a train that was almost as wide as our living room.  Micah thought it was more fun to paint Daddy, though!

In preparation for Valentine's Day, we made this heart rainbow sticky wall to help Micah practice sorting colors.  Brad cut out a bunch of different color hearts.  Then, we drew a rainbow on a piece of contact paper and taped the paper to the wall in the playroom.  Micah had a lot of fun matching the color hearts to the colors of the rainbow.  This was a great sorting activity for him--something we haven't done much of, but he seems to instinctively know how to do.

However, Micah had more fun throwing the hearts up in the air and yelling, "Yo Gabba Gabba!"  This is something he learned to do when we took him to "Yo Gabba Gabba! Live"  He kept filling the bowl up and asking Brad to dump it on him--he loved it!

Of course, he doesn't want his little brother to miss out so as soon as he heard Judah wake up we had to go upstairs and get him.  Micah climbed into the crib with him and wanted to play.

Later that day, Micah wanted to "dot dot dot" his letter "B."  So, we got out the dot paints.  He loves to "dot dot dot" with everything, except the dot paints!  He always uses them like markers.  Oh well.

That was our week last week.  A little lax, but still lots of fun.  I'm hoping to do more posts like this on a regular basis just to keep track of the progress that Micah is making and to share all of the great ideas that I've been collecting!  I'm also linking up with 1+1+1=1 for their Tot School Link.
