Mikaela came over earlier in the day and helped a bit with the little one's during circle time and individual work time so we were able to get what we had to done quickly. That left the whole afternoon free. Mikaela took Erik shopping so we were one child short.
I remarked that it felt like we were missing 4 children. Not 2 seconds later Taylor came up to me and said, "It feels like 3 kids are missing!"
After the Pinata was broken the children all dove for the spoils and Aaron graciously put some of his treasures aside for Erik when he got home.
Ian said he had thousands of pieces of candy! Thankfully, Syndi only put in a small amount of candy, along with yo-yo's, necklaces, peanuts, and pencils.
We enjoyed a relaxed game of Bocce Ball and a walk/scooter/stroller/bike/Rollerblade ride around the neighborhood.
The children took a small detour to check out the new dirt hills down the road and hunt for snakes. Thankfully they couldn't find any snakes, I think it is because they did not have Erik to look.
