Thinking about the New Year

I stopped doing Tot School with M&M back in October and decided to just do holiday crafts and activities until the beginning of the year. I want to start up again on January 4th. This means that I need to be planning now so that I can be prepared. My problem last time was that I was trying to plan a week at a time every weekend. I've built up a stash of go to activities, and I have more I want to make and get supplies together for. I just need to organize them now and plan out which weeks I'm going to do what theme. I'll continue with the letter of the week because once I start something I can't stop halfway through. I'm took M&M out of the preschool she just had once a week and will use that money to get her in a dance class because I just think she would just LOVE that. She still goes to a preschool two mornings a week. I need to keep her in some sort of school until she goes to Kindergarten in two years so it's not such a shock to her to be away from home especially since where we live doesn't give us the option of going half day. It's an all day kindergarten.

I'm really excited to start up Tot School again! Since Bubba isn't sleeping as much during the day as he used to and he really likes to get into everything that we are doing now, we will probably end up doing Tot School during his naps. We'll also continue with holiday and seasonal arts and crafts.

Although most of this blog will center around activities for toddlers there will still be recipes, crafts and photography mixed in. I'm actually working on something right now, but I can't post about it until after Christmas. I'm just looking ahead because we will be out of town for Christmas and when we get back it will be the New Year and there will be new goals and resolutions to start up!



  1. Good luck with your Totschool/Preschool. We also plan to start dancing after Christmas. As for sharing question in the post below - you can use - that's what most people use, but google docs will work as well.

  2. Can't wait to see what you girls start working on. I really would love to do more "theme-based" work, but I can never really get it all together. I've been feeling VERY successful lately with linking activities with a specific BOOK or story that we read.

    Anyway, I'll stay tuned! :)

  3. I gave you a blog award :)
    Your blog is so cute!

  4. Before Meghan started preschool (she's in a speech and language room...otherwise she'd still be home with me), I was doing Hubbard's Cupboard...not exactly tot school since it is planned instruction, but it was still hard to do enough and keep it varied...planning was tough!!
