Last week we talked about Antarctica - we're slowly covering the continents. One day we read all the Tacky the Penguin books we could get our hands on at the library. Tacky is, obviously, tacky. He's not like other penguins. Loud, tone deaf, messy, dressing a little odd, can't march in a straight line to save his life, always setting his own course rather than going along with the norm...but Tacky is also a clever, resourceful, useful, and creative bird who comes through in the end. We did a very basic "character analysis" of Tacky and used lots of adjectives to describe him. Then we made tacky shirts with an outline of a shirt, scrap paper, scissors, and glue.
Felicity can't use scissors yet, but a glue stick is her very favorite toy.
All three girls really got into this.
Also, it is amazing how ALIKE Felicity and Vivian are looking right now!
Vivian entertains herself however she can.
Felicity only cares about Bunny and Blankie being within eyesight at all times and keeping up with her sisters.
And a tiny house update...tiny! Cannot resist. All the blue siding is on the house, painting has begun, the deck is done, and our built ins are pretty much complete. So happy with the living room. Coffers, book shelves, and a barn beam mantle are installed.
A close up of the beam. So perfect.
Grandpa claims there are probably bugs living in the beam still. A clear coat of sealant should lock them in forever, right?
