This week, AJ and I picked up our friend, Butterfly, and headed to the Resource Center. The following is my favorite picture from our day there.
Butterfly painted a very colorful picture of herself.
….while AJ spent the majority of his time at his favorite table (the play dough).
I am glad that we got out of the house for R week in our little home preschool program (R is for Resource Center!) but AJ came home with a cold that has made him so congested that he woke up gagging (and vomiting) last night. Great. Was it worth it? Yep.
In other news, for R week, AJ is determined to learn to READ. He is doing amazingly for a 4 year old! And I have to say that I’m incredibly proud. So far, his favorite story is Zac the Rat on Starfall.com.
Now it’s your turn. What did you do this week? For those of you who haven’t played along before, GMYBS is not a contest, and it’s for any level of photographer. It’s simply a fun way to show off the favorite picture (or favorites) that you’ve taken this week. Read to find out more about Give Me Your Best Shot….And come back to leave the link to your best shot below (please link to your actual Give Me Your Best Shot post). And grab my button below and link to me so that we can get more people to stop by! (NOTE: The code doesn’t always work when it’s grabbed from WordPress. I have tried a bunch of times and I can’t figure out an easy fix. If it doesn’t work to copy and paste, you can always just include a link back here. Thanks!)

I love Butterfly and Aj.. They are so cute, they are having so much fun with each other and it seems that they enjoy what they are doing but sad to know that Aj got sick maybe he’ll need to rest. I love you both!
@Lolli it’s very old and common error in WordPress. You might want to try to add your code between
and see it that will solve the problem. I guess it will.
I like your Butterfly photo. What she is drawn? a skinny transformer! :)
Thanks for mentioning about “give me your best shot”. I love taking pix of my kids in general, this way the memories will stay forever, ha. This week we went to the children’s museum, and it was a blast of course! Thanks for sharing about your week’s events.

Love the pictures. Looks like a very fun place to visit. Too bad about him getting sick, but at least it was worth it. :)

Looks like they had a wonderful day!!! It is so fun to be creative, and I love the wings. Such fun! Such fun!
Looks like they had a lot of fun!
AJ FREQUENTLY asks me “Is today a school day?” He loves it (even though sometimes you wouldn’t know that!).
Yes, I’ve noticed the same thing about the code. I have been able to do it myself, but for some reason as soon as I post it on my blog here, it “distorts” the quotation marks so that is not copyable the way it is. Strange.
Aww…great pictures as always Lolli. :) Thanks again for taking her. She’s been telling me she wants to have school with AJ every day it’s so fun.
BTW, I changed all of your quotation marks from curved to straight ones on your code and it worked just fine. Come over and see my picture. :)

Great photos of them playing and enjoying their time at the resource center, looks like a great place to hang out (aside from the sickies you picked up :( )

Thanks for stopping by! It really is the season for colds and coughs, and there’s no way to avoid them. Might as well get out and enjoy things while we can. :)
Winter is a time for having coughs. There’s no way to avoid them. And it’s not worth locking yourself up in the house to TRY to avoid them, either. Might as well have fun while you can!
I’ll cross my fingers for him too. My son seems fine (full of energy) all day, but then has a hard time sleeping at night. Poor guy!
You can always link up to as many shots as you want! I rarely if ever have one favorite shot (usually there are a few that tell a story together). You’re welcome to link up every week and add my button, too!

I love the top photo also! So cute! Sorry to hear that one of the kids got sick. Seems to be the season for colds. Just about every kid I know has some form of a cold! Stopping by from SITS!

The fact that the kids can paint and I don’t have to worry about my furniture is a huge attraction for me! We love hanging out there!

Poor baby! Aren’t winter coughs the worst! I hope he feels all better soon. LOVE your outing with your special friend Butterfly : ) I love little children.

Great color in these photos. That butterfly outfit is adorable. I hope your little guy starts feeling better, mine is finally going back to school today. Fingers crossed he makes it the whole day ;)
We love star fall at our house, too! Love the painting!

There’s nothing like kids and paint – as long as it’s not on my walls, I love to watch them create — they take it VERY seriously.
I’ll leave you a link to seven shots I took this week — if that’s okay?

I love those shots. The Resource center looks like a perfect place to hang out. Make a big mess with paint and just walk away. :)
