Learning Kid Linkup

Welcome back to our weekly Learning Kid Linkup!  Do you like to travel?  I love it!  For six years – before the kids came into picture – we traveled far and wide.  It’s not easy to travel with small children though.  We try from time to time.  We went to Germany, Russia and Austria with them.  (Each time we did it we said it was the last time ever… it was VERY hard!)  Since we can’t get on a plane to Australia any time soon, we do the next best thing.  We do touristy things in our own city.  We go to the popular tourist destinations, walk slowly, take in Chicago’s sights and sounds, eat at outside cafes, and enjoy carousel rides.  Yesterday we went to Navy Pier.  My son took a picture of me walking.  It has such a beautiful skyline of downtown I had to show it to you.

You would never guess what was another fun thing this week.  We attended a birthday party for a pair of Dexter Steers at the Lincoln Park Zoo.  We were the only people, besides employees of the zoo, who were present for The Gift Opening Ceremony.  The birthday gift was… a box of hay.

This week we’ve been doing lots of apple activities and eating lots of apple ice-cream (it’s not actually ice-cream but a healthy sorbet, but shsh… don’t tell my kids, they think it’s an ice-cream).

    And now to the linkup! 


Meet your hosts for Learning Kid Linkup:


Eva from Kid Minds 
Melanie from Tree Valley Academy
We try to make it worth your while to linkup with us!  Every post linked up with us gets pinned!  We also promote our favorite posts across our social media networks!  Three hosts mean triple exposure! 

The most clicked on post from last week was Apple Fun Round Up from Tots and Me.  Check out this blog by a mom of many children.  She is currently home-preschooling her three youngest girls and she has great many ideas (some of them from five years of working in a Montessori school).



The featured post this week is Lego Math from Tree Valley Academy.  Anything that is related to LEGO is a big hit in my house.  I want my kids to be excited about math, so if I can find math activity they enjoy, I love it!



Grab a button, if you were featured.  Ha-ha!  Just kidding!  Melanie is one of the hosts!  But if you’ve been featured in some point in the past and still didn’t grab a button, now is your chance!
