See, isn't he cute! (By the way, this is my favorite chair. It was my mom's and Chris had it recovered for me for Christmas.) I love being able to see how much he's grown each month with each of these pictures. Of course I shared them on the Facebook so all my friends and family could see how adorable my little man is, however I wanted to put them up somewhere in my home too. I searched for a picture frame that had twelve spots but I couldn't find one I really liked or didn't cost a fortune. But a friend of mine did this super cute bunting banner with pictures of her son at each month for his birthday party (crazy, she and I had our babies on the same day in the same hospital!). Well it inspired me to do something similar with my photos. Here was the end result:

Make Ten Dominoes
It's the same as the basic domino game except instead of matching the same number together, you match together numbers that make ten. For example, if I had a six I could put a four next to it. This could be done for any number that you want to work on for math facts actually.
I Found, You Found
For this one, we picked a number to work on, such as 7. Then I would find a domino that added to 7, like 6 and 1. Then she would find one, like 3 and 4. I would try to make sure we say the pairs aloud too, I found 6 and 1 which makes 7, what can you find?
I used a white board but this could be drawn or typed on paper too. I made squares with numbers 3-10 (any number range that you want to be working on would do) and then we 'parked' the dominoes in the correct place. For example, if I had a domino with 2 and 2 on it, I parked it in the four square.
How do you use dominoes for math?

So for Easter here in Guyana everyone flies a kite:
Cute Jennie :)
Biggest kite I've ever seen!
Awesome Easter outfits
Not very delicious shaved ice
Tons of people and kites at the sea wall. I was afraid to walk around with so many strings threatening to behead me!
Next year I'll have to buy myself a kite and join in the fun!

Station Street, my new home
If you look at my last post you can see how very different my new street is. I guess this is what happens when you live in the 'big city'
My street has a lot of rum shops and beer gardens.
My new bridge to cross (it hasn't flooded so far!)
This is it! My new apartment :)

I am officially a Peace Corps Volunteer as of today! We had our swearing in ceremony this morning and it is a great relief to be done with training. So as a transition I figured I would say my goodbyes to the place I've been living for the last two months.
Good bye dog (that has no name that I know of but I lovingly named ralph)
Good bye bridge that likes to go under water when it rains :)
Good bye Oriane's pink house
Good bye pink bridge that meant we were almost home!
Good bye very tempting sign for rat hunters (almost quit the Peace Corps for this)
Anyone else see what's wrong?
Good bye training center!!!!!!!!!!!
And finally, good bye our mascot Eloise!
