ABC Summer Weekly Report: F

picking strawberries at the farm -- July 5th, 2011

This week was a short one, and a single-letter week. My mom friends and I assigned 'F' to this week, for the Fourth of July, but in the end, my family spent the Fourth locked in a car for the entire day, driving back from Michigan. Even so, we did a few activities that began with F between Tuesday and today. The week went by too quickly -- and was too busy with post-vacation chores and catch-up work, not to mention other non-F-related excitement such as hanging out at the city pool and attending our town's annual outdoor Justin Roberts kids' concert -- to squeeze everything in; we never got to making homemade Finger-paint, for example. But see below, and check back next week for more ABC Summer fun.

F

visited the Farm
taught/took "Fancy lessons"*
made Fun Fishy Snack Mix (i.e., homemade Chex-mix-type snack with Goldfish crackers)
traced Footprints


*(Julia taught; Genevieve and I were the students. In case you were wondering, "yellow" is plain, and "gold" is fancy. Likewise "horse" vs. "pony," "caterpillar" vs. "butterfly," and "hot pink" vs. "fuchsia." Good to know!)

What I *really* want to know is if you had to utter the "f" expletive during any of those activities.

Because HEY! at least it would have been in keeping with the theme!
