Fun and Games

We are continuing our round-the-block walks, at least once a week. Aidas and Noah get to walk half of the way around the block while the other 3 enjoy the view from the wagon. Then, when we get to the tennis courts, we know it’s time to switch. Noah and Aidas get into the wagon,…

Kidbits

The nice weather has given us many options for outdoor play. Sometimes, we bring some toys from the apartment out back. We nearly take up the entire elevator, which may or may not irk other tenants. The kids know how to quickly win them over though, with a cute “Hi!” or “We going play outside!”…

Here Comes the Sun

It really was a long cold winter. It finally feels more like spring around here. The children and I have been thoroughly enjoying the weather. No more snow pants. No more mittens. It’s bliss. One day, we were lucky enough to catch the garbage truck emptying the bins at the apartment building. B. probably gets the…

Learning About Colours, Playing Dress-Up, and Other Daycare Updates

Although Torontonians have been experiencing frigid temperatures recently, the kids never complain about going outside. In fact, a few of them complain when I declare that it is time to go back inside! They also enjoy trying on each others’ boots when we are inside the apartment. Above, M. sports Noah’s winter boots, and is…

Home Daycare Kids Return!

I had been on holidays for nearly two weeks before this past Monday. It was fantastic to spend family time with Noah over the holidays; I was able to give him more of my undivided attention. Sometimes, as a home daycare provider, I have wondered if the fact that I am sharing my attention with…

Fall Fun!

It was, as usual, a busy week at the home daycare. Earlier in the week, we visited Lithuania Park. This picnic table on the playground now signifies snack time for Noah. The kids enjoyed their graham crackers and water in their little clubhouse. We had brought some toys to the playground and enjoyed rolling the…
