 "D" is for DOTS. 

 I found some paint markers that made perfect dots.  Brad liked these, but I am undecided.  I thought they would be more like markers and less like paint.  The dots of paint didn't dry very quickly.
 Brad sorted dots by color and size, and we also worked on patterns. 
We played preschool Yahtzee with the big die I made for my ten times bigger project in middle school geometry.  I knew that thing would be useful one day.

The kids and I go to the library for story time every Wednesday.  The librarians always have a fun craft for the kids to make after the stories are read.  This week we read stories about Thanksgiving, and the kids made cute turkey hats.  Brad was thrilled with his.

 I received these roses from Hanna last week.  She randomly came by quite a few flowers from a friend, and she decided to share the wealth.  I'm glad she did.

 I am done babysitting Mikayla as of today.  I am pretty sad; Brad has had a lot of fun with her.  They were pretty goofy today.  We played a lot on the couch and pretended an alligator was trying to get us.  They were pretty easily amused.

 We had a fun time today with the letter "C."  We read a story, decorated cupcakes, colored paper cupcakes, and had a math oriented cupcake walk.
