Shark teeth scissor skills

Ever since I introduced L to scissors she loves cutting paper. She practiced those scissor skills cutting out sharks teeth to put into the mouth of the shark she glued together. I showed her an example of what a sharks tooth might look at but let her cut as she wished. For more advanced cutters you can draw lines for them to follow with their scissors.

Dolphins, whales and bears

Our beach plans got rained out so we decided to go to marineland for something different to do. This was a first for everyone and they loved feeding the deer and bears, watching the whales through the underwater viewing area and going on the rides. It was a unique experience, however I was disappointed at the lack of respect some people at the park had for the animals (chasing after the deer and throwing water bottles in the bear feeding area). 
L was waiting for the deer to eat some more of its food. The deer were not very hungry.
