Field Trip: Charleston Fire Museum

We had fun today exploring the Fire Museum with daddy this time. We love all the old fire trucks and all the safety tips. The kids love the playground and driving the fire truck simulator. The place is huge with over 30 old time fire trucks.

Field Trip: 1st Annual Pirate Festival in Charleston SC

We had a good time at the Pirate Festival. Hard to believe this was the first one. Of course we dressed them up and headed down town. Lots of activities for the kids to do. They got to paint a pirate and make a sword out of newspaper. They also met many pirates. Black beard and Mary Reed. The kids sat and listened to the pirates tell stories of their lives and were able to ask questions. They got to participate in a battle and walk in a pirate parade and pretend to shoot a gun.
They also got to go on the coast guard boat who was a sponsor at the festival Daniel like she big gun.

Learning numbers with Bingo

I decided to play Bingo to help Sydney and Kenny learn to recolonize numbers and letters. Daniel was a big helper with his sister and brother, showing them the ones that I called. It was a fun way to learn and the best part is no one knew it was "school" because we were having such a great time. Sydney won the first game and Daniel won the next 3 in a row. Kenny gave up after the first game and just played with the "chips".
