Next thing my friend Cierra came to play and she had a handful of twigs for a campfire. Momma said that we were going to build the campfire in my bedroom. Huh??
She dug out my strobe light, put some tissue on it and then some twigs. Um, doesn't much look like a campfire to me. But then she shut the door, turned out the lights, and look!
Real (almost) fire!
We tried to get photos of roasting marshmallows but they didn't work
. We left the lights out and used canned heat.
Then my mom did something crazy again.
She smooshed a cooked marshmallow and a candy bar between two crackers.
I was a bit hesitant to try it.
Hey, this isn't bad!
Then my momma told me a story about 5 little marshmallows that turned into s'mores.
She used my new story time cookie sheet. I'll be using this cookie sheet for lots of school activities.
The story pieces are magnetized, and I had fun telling the story over and over. I even told it to Daddy when he came home from work.
We had a s'more theme all week. We got to eat s'mores each day. Well, actually only two days.
By the second day I had pretty much figured out that I just wanted to lick off the chocolate and forget the marshmallow. By the third day, I skipped every thing but the chocolate bar.
'Course when you got a mom like mine, you can't expect to just stop at the enjoyment part of it.
She's always gotta make it a learning thing.
I had to do spelling:
Still it was fun.
Wonder what kind of other fun things mom has planned for when 'real' school starts in a few weeks?
