Fun with Riley

I have been pretty busy for the past two weeks. But I have also been having fun with my new little friend, Riley! I have been keeping her a few days a week and having such a fun time too! If you read my blog, you know I ADORE kids! I was excited when her parents asked me to spend time with her!
 Last week, we went to the library. Riley was looking forward to seeing the tarantula there! She also saw a hermit crab! So cute!
 Guess what else was there? A little hedgehog! We were so surprised to see this little critter there. So funny.
 We also took time to read a few books, of course! I love the children's library here in this town. It is great!
 Mr. Rob has the best 3-D pop up books. He read Alice in Wonderland to Riley!
 Aren't the pages so cool? I thought they were!
 Today, we stopped by my house for a little while and Riley met our sweet Belle. Our dog loves children, which is great.
 We had a special afternoon today. We made homemade play dough!

Ta-Da! This is the finished result. She did a great job kneading the dough and mixing the food coloring in. By the way, play dough is very easy to make and kids have SO much fun doing it. I will post the recipe soon. Of course, kids need adult to help! ;)

Riley will start Kindergarten next week. Riley, I have had so much fun with you and wish you an awesome year, sweetie! Love you! Miss Meredith
