ABCs

I have always loved letters: their shape, their sound, their purpose. My once playroom has an alphabet theme and I sorta collect alphabet books. I wanted to pass on this love of letters to my kids so when my first child was preschool age I started “The Letter of the Week”. We focused on a different letter each week and did activities, recipes, crafts and learning games all around that letter. We had so much fun that I did it with my next child and this fall I will do it again with my third child. This section of the blog is dedicated to the Letter of the Week.

O Week

I should have known President Obama was going to get reelected this week. Because it is O week after all! And the Letter Gods love me like that. If it were R week it might have been a different outcome.…

N Week

Newsflash! It’s N week! I considered doing nothing/nada for N week, but there was no way that would fly around here. So we made nachos and nibbled on nectarines.…

M Week

It’s a miracle! We managed to do M week right after L week. No months of waiting this time. And can I just say that Mr. M is one of my favorite letters. There are a million ideas for M.…

L Week

I Week

We intended to spend I week in Idaho with my very intelligent but insane family. However, Crew fell ill and so we had to improvise our own Thanksgiving at home with just our little family. Luckily, my husband insisted on cooking.…

H Week

Hey, it’s H week! To be honest, H week was more about my house than Croft’s learning. See we happen to put our house up for sale on Monday. We have been homeless all week and had to hang out with family and friends as people looked at our home. Plus we were house hunting. H week has been hectic and humbling to say the least.…

G Week

G week had a great start with ghosts and goblins and ghouls. Plus we gorged on goodies at Grandma’s on a gorgeous Fall day. The day or two after was grueling, but we ended the week with gusto.…

Regroup and Refuel

I am taking this week off from “Letter of the Week”. Sometimes you just need to regroup and refuel. (And as a heads up, I plan on taking a week off in November for Thanksgiving and the whole month of December off to fully embrace Christmas.) Although I don’t have a letter post, I still wanted to share a few thoughts about Letter of the Week that have been going through my mind:…
