Memorial Day weekend marks the wind-down to the school year. Aly is SO ready for summer break.
Here's week 21!
Just when I thought she couldn't love her quarterly Kidpik delivery more, they add reading material! She read the new magazine cover to cover before looking at the clothes.
143/365: First Project
Her first ever school project is finished! She chose to do it on the habitats of Adélie penguins.
"Not just ANY penguins. ADÉLIES!"
We refrained from taking over and doing it for her because we didn't want to set the precedent that parents "help" (read: "do it all") with school projects. We gave suggestions. Some she took, some she scoffed at. I helped a little with the Spanish, but just a little. This project is all her (right down to the pink poster board!) and we are so proud.
144/365: ABA at the Mall
This was a "community outing" day with our ABA therapy team. We work on safety (not wandering off), social skills (having a conversation), and coping skills during trigger events (hand dryers in public restrooms or conflict/emotions in books).
145/365: DIY Face Mask
We decided that Saturday would be a Mommy/Aly "spa day". We did a DIY face mask from her new Kidpik magazine, along with a foot soak, pedicures, and makeup.
After church, Aly and I played lots of board games and painted our fingernails. It was a nice change from having to rush out to social playgroup.
147/365: Memorial Day
We celebrated our day off by staying in pj's all day, trying new BBQ chicken and air-fried okra recipes, and playing UNO.
148/365: Quiet Day
After a long holiday weekend of keeping Aly entertained, it was nice to have a day to myself to edit LOTS of personal photos. Sometimes momma needs quiet time.
