Down Home Fun at Homestead Farm

3/5ths of our clan went strawberry picking this morning.   Sam isn’t feeling well, so he and Daddy took a rain check. In the past, we’ve gone to Great Country Farms, since we participated in their CSA and it was included.  This time, I decided to check out something closer and cheaper.  I heard good...

I was invited to speak at my local MOPS group this week on the subject of fun things to do with preschoolers throughout the summer.  In this case, preschoolers means children kindergarten aged and younger.   As a mom of three such children (ages 6, 4 and 2) and I took on the task with...

Big Truck Days

Every year, I would hear my friends would talk about Big Truck Days, a fun event sponsored by the town of Herndon’s Public Works department.   Unfortunately, it was always after the fact.  This year, I made sure I had it on my calendar and we got over there this afternoon. Apparently, the afternoon is...

On Saturday, we went to a big festival hosted by the church that runs our preschool. It started with a cute puppet show – the gal was a pretty good ventriloquist.   This picture was taken from pretty far back.  I should have held onto my camera, with an antsy toddler, I ended...

Men on the Money Monumental Field Trip

I got to join Wendy’s class on a field trip today.  They have been studying money, learning about coins, their values and whose picture is on them.  So the fieldtrip involved going down to DC and seeing the monuments for various presidents.  I was so glad to be able to join the kids, thanks...

Of Sledding and Snow Shakes

Sunday was a beautiful morning, with perfect conditions for sledding. Sunny, not too windy, and not so much snow that we couldn’t drive our minivan to the nearest bestest hill in our neighborhood. It took some effort to get all of the children into their snow gear and out the door, but finally, we...

Veteran’s Day Fun at the Smithsonians

Back on Veterans Day, we found ourselves with an unplanned free day.   Everybody had the day off except Sam’ preschool, but we let him play hookie.  It was a drizzly, gray day, but I decided it would be fun to hit the museums downtown, since we don’t get down there often enough.  I was...

Good Ole Fashioned Fall Fun

Last Thursday was a parent teacher conference day and we lucked out with an early conference time.   Mike took the day off, so after hearing how brilliant our kindergartner is, we took of for a fun day at Cox Farms. We’ve been going for several years and always have a blast.  It’s typically cooler...
