Updates

 Parents were invited to come visit the kids during circle time last week. We heard them sing songs, and saw what they've been learning. Emery just loves school!
 At home, we were trying to mix things up to ease the boredom. I made a sensory bin after finding inspiration HERE. It was a hit! Well until they started fighting over stuff and screaming and crying...
 They enjoyed scooping the black beans,

 and looking at the animals and bugs,
 making patterns,
 and sorting into a cupcake pan.
 Oh, and we also went camping with our ward last weekend. Unfortunately this is the only picture I took. By the time we got there, set up, started a fire, and ate dinner, Emery was asking to go to bed! He did have a good time though playing around with his friends while we set up. Lucy did surprisingly well. At around 9:30 she was drifting off while sitting in front of the fire. I took her into the tent, bundled her up, and cuddled with her until she fell asleep. She did wake up a few times in the night, but was able to get back to sleep ok. At 5:30 both kids were awake but Lucy climbed over to Joel to keep warm and somehow Emery fell back asleep until 7 or so after I insisted we were not getting out of the tent while it was still dark! With the low being around 50 it was a little nippy but with lots of blankets and our sleeping bags we managed to stay warm enough! It was fun. We'll probably do it again in a year or two....

Sounds like you all have been busy! That sensory bin is a super cute idea. I love camping but my son who is 14 months does not. Now when we go we have to rent a cabin because for whatever reason he REFUSES to sleep in a tent!!!
