Books, Paint, Dance and Ode to Mommy

Changing our history work time to the mornings has been such a GREAT move for us... it seems like we just have more time for all sorts of fun!

Like today, I had planned our readings on Early Australia and New Zealand, some narration, digging into some library books and then THIS happens....

Mixing up some Homemade face paint




And then the transformation into Maori "warriors" begins...
*Lydia was worried about using our paints... lol... so she used sunscreen:)



It really was fun;) Their personalities really came out... the cautiousness and the boldness! My three little warriors ready for battle!



And then as the girls cleaned up, Chris wanted to dance in his tribal paint.... soo funny!! And he included an Ode to His Mommy ... too sweet!!

Excuse the blurriness... I"m still learning how to use my camera;)


And the "clicking" noise is Chris providing his own rhythm:)

You can find some other picture posts at 5 Minutes for Mom, Go Graham Go, To Be Thode and any other linkys I find !!!

***And for those interested.... the paint did wash off fine with SOAP... baby tear free kind;) BUt it has to be really washed, Chris barely scrubbed his belly and it was still tinted blue after his bath:)

I love that Chris is an "ancient warrior" wearing a cell phone. :) This is really fabulous. What a joy to see the words and ideas from the library books being brought to life!

I'm a new follower, would appreciate if you stopped by. I'm needing some help. Really simple on voters part and would be really a blessing to our family.

My favorite part was that you let the phone ring....and focused on what he was doing in that moment and not taking your eyes off of him! Love it!! You are such an inspiration to me!
