upbeat and happy!

Going for more happy, upbeat books and rhymes as spring draws nearer. I love these books because they are so colorful and lively! There’s no special theme except for happy. 🙂 That’s how I’ve been feeling lately. Baby’s good, work’s good, family’s good, weather’s good. Life=good. I want to spread that feeling to my families this week!

Every week I put up five different colored houses on the back wall. A mouse is hidden behind one of them. We knock on each door in succession, asking, “Little mouse, little mouse, are you in the _________ (fill in the color) house?” Then we lift up the house to see if he’s underneath!
