God made ME! And God made....Colors!

Didn't God make our world so vibrant!! 
This month we are learned 

and God made COLORS!
We read our Noah and The Ark book to learn about how God sent us a COLORFUL rainbow as a promise to us.
(Now K think she sees a rainbow every time we go cute!)
Learning about COLORS gave us lots of time to learn about the story of Noah and God's COLORFUL creation.

We matched fruit loops to colors of the rainbow

We printed out a color book to learn how COLORFUL God's creation is. 
We colored sugar with food coloring and made COLORFUL cookies
We had a fun COLORFUL rainbow snack. 

We learned about Joseph and coat of many COLORS!
We played lots of COLOR matching games

We drank COLORFUL milk (just added drops of food coloring) and used to the milk to paint our toast fun COLORS

Thank you Lord for making your CREATION so COLORFUL

What are the chances?? It's NCAA madness!!

So remember when I posted about Chris and Kaitlyn picking her bracket here. Well, what are the chances that she would pick the 2 final teams. Yep, that's right. Kaitlyn's bracket has Duke playing Butler.

Read Daddy's comments to all his friends about it below.

I think I’ve told most of you about Kaitlyn’s NCAA bracket, but for those who don’t know here’s a brief overview.

I wanted to have my 2-year old daughter fill out a bracket this year just to see how it would turn out.  So how did we do this?  I printed off the logos of all 64 teams and Kaitlyn picked her favorite in each matchup until the entire bracket was filled out 

The only assistance I gave was this:

·         All 1, 2, and 3 seeds automatically won the first round.  This turned out to be a mistake since Georgetown was upset by Ohio in round 1.

·         All 1 seeds automatically won the second round.  This again turned out to be a mistake since Kansas went down to N. Iowa in round 2.

·         Past that, the picks were all hers based on conversations like this: “Kaitlyn, do you like the Badger (Wisconsin) or the Wildcat (Kentucky)? Ok, Badger it is.”

Now that the tournament is nearing its end, I thought it would be fun to share her bracket with you guys—see attachment.  As you may guess, I wouldn’t be showing this off if there wasn’t something just absolutely amazing—like the fact that she picked a Butler/Duke matchup in the final game.  Although her other two final four teams (Houston and Wisconsin) didn’t play out as well, it’s still hilarious to show that a 2-year old has as good of a chance to pick this bracket as any of us sports junkies.

Unfortunately I did not enter her bracket in my office pool—otherwise she would be the winner of a $500 prize right now.  The winner was a good friend and co-worker of mine so I’m going to try and guilt him into splitting the winnings with Kaitlyn’s college fund.  Here’s to March Madness and all the exciting games.

Final notes:

·         You will notice some scribbles on the bracket below the championship game.  This is Kaitlyn’s signature validating this bracket.

·         She picked Texas to lose in the first round—she makes me so proud in moments like this.

·         Kaitlyn picked my beloved Aggies to go out in the second round to Purdue.  Even though this was a correct pick, it taught me a lesson—don’t use the word “choo-choo-train” to describe an opponent of the Aggies to a 2-year old.
