Mother Hubbard's cupboard is bare, but I am going to hit you up for more treats once I have our room moved up to the new building.

Painters: A "sparkling" thanks to Gabe's mom, Jenna's mom, Daisy's mom and Claire's mom for bravely coming to assist. You may have noticed them at the concert....they were tinted red and green and proudly decorated in gold glitter!
Math: We will be working this week on place value. However, the only place the kids seem really focused on is where they are going to place their Christmas trees and presents this year!
Reading: The Thundermans really enjoyed talking about Koko the gorilla and her kittens. Koko is almost 50 years old now, I was shocked to discover this. She has had a lot of kittens over the years!
