Happy Wednesday! Yesterday, my husband’s company had a take your kids to work day. He’s an airplane mechanic for a local company. While Harper and Will were too young for the majority of the activities, I took them after work yesterday to look around the airport and see what daddy does at work. Once the kids are six, they are able to spend the entire day at work, which is so cool! The kids get to shadow their parents in the morning and in the afternoon there are specific activities for them.
Checking out all the airplanes..
Walking through the hanger…
Afterwards, the kids enjoyed cookies and lemonade outside.
It was a fun time, but I’m really looking forward to when they’re able to shadow at work and stay all day!
I’m linking up with Ashley and Jess for “It’s the Little Things.”

Last week, we were out of school Monday through Wednesday as a result of snow/ice (we’ve had 12 snow days and many 2 hour delay days this school year!). I had some paperwork that was due for an upcoming meeting, so I decided to take Will and Harper with me for a little while. Plus, we needed to get out of the house! I packed lots of snacks and figured I would have plenty of new, interesting things in my classroom for them to play with, right?!
We lasted about an hour and a half and I got about 20 minutes of work done, ha! It was very difficult to get tasks accomplished when they were bouncing around the room, coming up to me every few minutes and asking me what this was or how this worked. They played with my Unifix cubes, colored on my whiteboard, ate tons of snacks, fiddled with the pencil sharpener, hid under the tables, and tore my room apart! However, they had a great time and I was able to get the paperwork submitted. I don’t know how people do it who work at home with their kiddos in tow. How do you get any work accomplished?!
Will keeps asking when we’re going back to “Mommy’s school” again. Maybe next snow day:)
