30 Days 'Til Disney!!

We are sooooo excited!! It's 30 days until our trip to Walt Disney World!!! In celebration, Ally and I made a special Mickey countdown chain. Each day we will remove a link in the chain until we make it up to Mickey's head (the day we leave for WDW)!!!
Ally wrote all of the numbers (1-30) on the links
I also used this time to teach Ally about patterns. I showed her how we were making a color pattern in our chain (red, yellow, black, red, yellow, black, etc.). As I added the links, she was able to tell me what color came next in our pattern.
30 days and counting!!! Whooo hooo!!!!

You will have so much fun!!! I can not wait to see your blog posts of the trip. We had so much fun planning, but oh when we got there...needless to say we took over 250 pictures of our guys. I also can not wait to hear how your girls react to everything. We will be praying that you all will have a wonderful and safe time, and of course perfect weather.

What a creative way to countdown and to get the kids involved! Might have to borrow that idea someday if we get to go. Hope you all have a great time!
