Circus Time!

The circus is in town!  We are headed to the circus on Friday. So, what better than a circus theme for part of our learning this week. This will really be a new experience for all of us, as I don't ever remember going to the circus myself. Today we enjoyed some great circus stories, a clown hat craft and some juggling.  

Here are our 2 favorite stories of the day!

Goose has a love for books.  She loves to retell the stories aloud =)

Our two clowns!

Learning that juggling takes skill!
