My girls cannot get enough of the bucket list. They ask everyday to pull something from it. They have really enjoyed everything we've done so far. Here's what we did this past Wednesday, which carried into Thursday.
We were actually supposed to do this last week, but ran out of time. So, we did it this week. We made a fairy house out of sticks we collected in the backyard.
We added a few special touches to the fairy house.
They wrote a letter to their aunt and uncle that live in Oklahoma.
We went to the Post Office to mail the letter. They had to do everything themselves.
Kinsley applying the stamp to the envelope.
They both wanted to drop it in the box, but Kinsley couldn't reach.
After the Post Office, we went to the Dollar Store where they each had $5 to spend. They got to choose whatever they wanted. They then had to put all of their stuff on the counter (done with my help), and give the cashier the money. They had to carry their own bags out as well.
Kinsley kept trying to give the cashier her money before she was ever finished ringing up her stuff.
She was ready.
After all of that we were starving. We stopped by a local barbeque place for lunch. I'm trying to teach them to support our local community as much as possible. Our motto is to buy local whenever you can.
I know this pic is blurry, but that's a belly laugh right there. She was cracking up. I'm wondering when those two top teeth are going to come in. It's been a while since she lost them.
She posed just right so that she could have antlers on her head.
Showing off their Dollar Store loot.
They couldn't wait to tear into all this stuff.
We spent a good hour playing with this whoopee cushion. When Daddy came home he played with them until he popped it. We've got to get another one now. They were heart broken.
Showing off the Hannah Montana glitter in her hair (That stuff is still in there even though I've washed her hair twice. I think I need to break out the Dawn dishsoap.)
They each got a cardboard doll house. They pretend that they are neighbors visiting eachother.
I love listening to them when they are pretending. They always crack me up.
These are the items I bought to do all of the other stuff in our bucket list. It's all hidden for now.
After lunch we stopped by the library to drop off our books and pick up new books. I found Dick and Jane and had to get it. Katie needs to work on fluency and accuracy when reading. Gotta get her ready for second grade.
Katie ended up leaving that evening to spend the night with one of her cousins. Kinsley and I put together her glow in the dark catepillar key chain. Here she is working on those fine motor skills. It ended up being too hard for her to put together and she lost interest in it quickly. I ended up having to do it and it was very difficult to say the least.
We did this the following day, but we froze some of their ponies and Littlest Pet Shop figures in water. I had purchased a few water guns at the Dollar Spot at Target and they had to rescue their figures using the water guns. Saw this on Pinterest.
Took them a while, but they eventually rescued all of them.
