Lessons for 9/4/08, Question About Yahoo Buzz, Great Field Trip Idea

This post is packed full today. I have limited time, now, so I am adding more than one thing per post on most days.

First is a question. Has anyone tried Yahoo Buzz, yet? I know it is fairly new, but I am interested in what users think of it. What do you like, or dislike, about it?

Second, for any of my local readers, to the Gainesville area. The Gainesville Museum, has a cool exhibit called Grossology. It is basically a travel through the Human Body. I thought it was a great field trip idea, and we will definately be going to it. That makes 4 field trips, we have planned so far. It is open from 10 AM-4PM Sept 27th-Jan 11th, so there is plenty of time to see it.

Caitlin will be starting preschool at the local library, on Fridays, in addition to preschool at home. This weeks arts and crafts project, is a surprise, and is usually done on Fridays. However, due to the length of time involved I will be doing it either Wed or Thurs of this week. I recently painted our master bath, and my husband suggested letting the kids paint on the cupboards. At first I was like, no way, they have never really painted. He laughed and said, who cares, only we use that bathroom, and it will have lasting memories. So that is the art project for this week. I bought some special stencils, and we will see how it goes. Stay tuned for pictures of the outcome.

wish the painting project with your kids will be fun melissa, like what your hubby said, don't worry about what will be the outcome, the activity will leave your kids lasting memories and also give them a chance to explore their creativity. good luck.

I will have pictures posted soon. It went pretty good, though I dont think I would use stencils again. They have a tendency to run. I would just let them freeform it next time. They had a ball though, and that is all that matters.
