Care package from Grandparents
The kids are excited, we received a care package from my parents. I could barely get thru the door before the kids ripped the package open to see what was inside. First thing taken out was the candy. It was eaten before I had time to get myself organize. But I did find the wrappers for the pictures:)
Next they read the highlights magazine and worked on some of the puzzles inside. When Daddy called (my husband is out of town) both kids read the funny stories they had created using stickers in the magazine. They love getting magazines!
My parents also sent some Bandz which my kids and I had never seen or heard of. My Mom also included an newspaper article about the guy who invented them. They are in fashion now. I wish I could think of something so silly and simple and make millions. Now that we are homeschooling I no longer have any idea what the latest trend is and I plan to keep it that way. The kids had fun sorting and figuring out what letters and animals shapes they could find. They also quickly discovered the real purpose of them (and I didn't even tell them) wearing them:)
Next the kids wanted to figure out the magic tricks my parents sent. The kids had a blast figuring out the tricks and it kept them entertained while I cooked dinner.
First up my daughter doing the magic string trick. taking 3 ropes of different lengths and make them into 3 ropes of the same length. Little tricky but after several tries we got it. I don't think David Copperfield has to worry about us taking over the magic world:)
Next up my son learned how to cut a rope. Much easier to learn. My daughter figured out how it was done pretty quickly. We will have to keep practicing and when Daddy returns home have a magic show.
Thanks Nana and Poppa for the great package. The kids really enjoyed seeing what was inside. Love and miss you!!!
