Tot School - Relaxed Style

*Emory is 27 months old*

With this past week being Thanksgiving, we had a very relaxed week as far as "school" is concerned.  Since we didn't have much structured sit-down time, I only managed to grab a few pictures.  We were too busy having fun with family!

Linking Cubes
While Elliott was doing some bucket balance math, Emory was building and exploring with the linking cubes himself.  He can't stand the tablecloth, so he pushed it out of the way to make room for his towers.

iPad Games
Shadow matching puzzles on Tozzle

Color practice

Play Time

From another room, I hear "Help!" in a slight giggly voice.  I come out to find this.  He has dumped the shoes out from the under-the-bed tote, dragged it into the kitchen, and is "hiding" in it!

The dinosaur table was a big hit!

Field Trip
We took a trip with my husband's brother and family to a park near their house that does a wonderful light display every year.  Emory was not the most pleasant at the beginning of the trip, so Elliott went ahead with his aunt, uncle and cousins, and Emory spent some alone time with mommy and daddy calming down.  After his big meltdown in the middle of the park, he really enjoyed the lights

Apparently the Eiffel Tower looks like a Rocket Ship to a 2 year old!

Roaring like a dinosaur!
