Teddy Bear Day

We had Teddy Bear Day at the Millers on Thursday. The girls each brought a teddy bear and they weighed and measured their bears. Then they compared the measurements to see who had the longest, shortest, heaviest, lightest, etc. The girls got to color pictures of a teddy bear and cut them out, too. Megan absolutely loved using the "knifes" as she called them (scissors). She must have cut that teddy bear picture into a hundred tiny shreds!

We also sat outside and solved teddy bear math problems with teddy grahams, interspersed with doing the teddy bear song/dance:

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn around
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, touch the ground,
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, reach up high
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, wink one eye
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, slap your knees
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, sit down please.

After they were done, they all jumped on the trampoline. I even jumped on it gently with Gloria for a few minutes, but I was making Betsy worried so I climbed out.
