Preschool Syllabus: Folk & Fairy Tales
Our theme for the month of February is folk and fairy tales. I figured it would be an easy theme to combine with Valentines since so many of these tales are about love. I'm also excited to spend a month reading fairy tales. Husbandie and I are huge fans of fantasy, what I consider to be a longer-length cousin of fairy tales. Many of our early dates involved discussing J. R. R. Tolkien, George MacDonald, & J. K. Rowling and we hope to someday share our love for these authors with our…

Luvin' my Bug
Luv Bug is 34 months old This ended up being an off week for Tot School. Daddy was home at the beginning of the week, so we just enjoyed family time together. Toward the end of the week, Luv Bug pulled a muscle in her neck while sleeping. Poor baby woke up crying and holding her neck. I called her doctor and got her an appointment, though we had to wait over an hour and a half in the waiting room. She was in so much pain, she just layed on my lap and fell asleep. Unfortunately, that nap made…
