S'more and S'more S'mores!

Sometimes my mom plans the craziest activities ever. But they are fun activities, so I am game. A couple of days ago when I woke my momma was hanging all these blankets on my window making my room 'black dark'.  I am not scared of 'black dark' but I don't know why she would want to do that in the morning time.

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.
Cierra wasn't.


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:


Sorting:


Counting:


And sequencing:


Still it was fun. 
Wonder what kind of other fun things mom has planned for when 'real' school starts in a few weeks?

Your camp fire looks fun and much safer than a real one. Do you know Stephen, I've never had S'mores. I really think I need to make some don't you?

Your mom comes up with some neat ideas, and fun things to do! I'll bet you have lots of fun in a few weeks, too. :)

PSALM 23

THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD,
That's Relationship!

I shall not want,
This supply is!

MAKE ME WALK IN GREEN PASTURES,
This is rest!

He leadeth me beside the still waters,
This is refreshing!

He restores my soul,
This is healing!

GUIDE ME FOR THE PATHS OF JUSTICE,
That's Guidance!

FOR THE LOVE OF YOUR NAME,
This is on purpose!

THOUGH I WALK THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH,
That's Testing!

I will fear no evil,
That's Protection!

Thou art with me,
That is fidelity!

YOUR STICK AND YOUR staff they comfort me,
This is discipline!

Prepare a table before ME IN THE PRESENCE OF MY ENEMIES,
This is hope!

UNGE MY HEAD WITH OIL
That's Consecration!

And my cup runneth over,
That's Abundance!

SURELY GOODNESS AND MERCY A follow me EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE,
This is a blessing!

AND I WILL DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD
That's Security!

FOR LONG DAYS,
This is eternity!

May the Lord bless you and keep you!

I'd be happy to follow my blog will be an honor to your presence. Repay the same way with all Christian love.

In Christ,
