"We're Going On a Trip?" (And I'm taking an apple, a basket, a cat, a dog, an elephant, a fishing pole, etc... It's a great game for memory and alphabetizing, since each person has to start at the beginning and say each word in order until they get to the next letter and they get to add a new one beginning with that letter. We've had lots of fun with it in the car.
Well, last night, I printed two copies of this out:
Mommy's going on a trip
on an Airplane
and I'm taking my Coat
then way down below in tiny letters, I wrote
and I'm taking YOU!
Then I folded them into a paper airplane and after supper they sailed across the table to the girls.
They were quite excited--once they read the fine print! Well, dd7 wasn't at first. They had been told that only Mommy and Daddy were going to Boston and that they would be staying with Grandma and Grandpa. They were really looking forward to staying in Grandma and Grandpa's newly redone guest room, with its bed full of pillows (and bounciness!). But then the realization she was going on an AIRPLANE sunk in!
Boston, here we come!
