Boy, I really need to do a better job of taking pictures! That’s the main reason why my blogging has been sparse lately. I have no new pictures. This morning I decided to look through my computer to see if I could find any pictures for y’all, and I ran across of few of Tacy.
Several weeks ago I put together this sensory bin of dyed rice for Tacy to dig around in. I added puff balls, spoons, cups, foam numbers, plastic eggs, and a few other odds and ends for Tacy to play with.
Tacy thoroughly enjoys digging and pillaging through the rice. Her favorite activity is to spoon rice into her cup then pour it back into the bin…over and over and over. Don’t tell her, but this is actually her toddler form of “school work.” It’s good exercise for those little fingers to grip the spoon, and pouring the rice back and forth is an excellent activity for improving her hand-eye coordination.
I spread a vinyl tablecloth on the floor to keep the inevitable mess contained. When she’s done playing, all I have to do to clean up is dump the tablecloth back into the bin.
It won’t be long before Tacy is ready to join us at the big school table. She’s already expressed interest in coloring, writing, painting, and counting. I may be biased, but I think she’s a pretty smart girl.
Maybe I can get my booty into gear soon and take some pictures. Fall will be rearing its head in a few weeks, I hope, and that always gets me in the mood to take pictures of the monkeys. Ty and Lucy are looking forward to the cooler temperatures and autumn fun. I love chasing them around the yard with my camera as they busy themselves chasing chickens, gathering sticks for campfires, and raking leaves.
