yes, technically it is O week, but with it being the week before kansas day, we incorporated a “wizard of oz” theme. and we had fun all week with a load of bricks. thanks, families!
we started the week playing with bricks. amazingly no one got hurt. and incredible team work was in action (seriously, this was a VERY heavy load)! i love the confidence of preschoolers. i love that they put themselves out there, grab on to help, don’t wait to be invited, put themselves at the back of the wagon and BELIEVE they are making it go. awesome.

we left the bricks with the blocks and saw some interesting sculptures.

later in the week we told the kids that since our bricks were brownish red, we were going to have to pretend they were yellow when we “followed the yellow brick road.” little did they know mr rob and i already painted them (note: if you plan to paint bricks and you assume that enamel glossy paint will cover, get ready for the bricks to SOAK UP the first couple of coats). good thing the wizard of oz left a note telling us he took the bricks to paint them and we took off to find them!
then we sat on them, balanced on them, then made a long skinny road to walk along…
we followed the yellow brick road, we followed the yellow brick road, we followed, followed, followed, followed, followed the yellow brick road!
happy kansas day!
