enough with the movies already.

When we moved I let the kids watch an incredible amount of movies. As much as they would sit for really. Packing and sorting and unpacking and loading trucks and the chaos of moving isn’t all that terribly kid friendly. At least not for me and my “I want it done this way” mentality. So they watched movies. Now that things are settling down, I’m trying to slowly wean them from the computer screen. perfection

So we’ve been playing games and play-doh so far. My goal is to get more organized with the holiday appropriate crafty things I want to do with them, but for now – this is working. We grabbed this up from a thrift store earlier in the week only to discover it doesn’t really work – that whole popping up with the timer thing not happening. But the kids love it just the same.

Whatever that means.

Moving to a new city brought a lot of new things to investigate. One of the most important is library storytimes. In our old city we droveĀ 20 minutes to go to the storytime in the next town over instead of the one 5 minutes away cause it was just that much better. In our new town we’ve tried out two storytimes – the toddler and the preschool version. I really liked the storyteller at the toddler night, but my oldest was a bit wary of going to a night that wasn’t meant for her. The preschool night was okay – not a huge fan of the storyteller that first night, but, BUT they make crafts after the stories!!! How exciting can it get? We went back again the second week and the storyteller was much improved -maybe she just had an off night. And we made these super cool fall owls:

I still want to around at the surrounding libraries and see what they’re offering (as I’m not a huge fan of going after dark) but I can’t tell you how stoked I am that there’s a crafty storytime.
