Along the Alphabet Path: "N" week

Here are the highlights from last week's stop along the alphabet path! "N" was for Nasturtium fairy and St. Nicholas, and also:

'Nana pancakes!

Narnia and Neverland

Numbers and Noah's Ark

(I found the idea for this Numberbow game at Starry Sky Ranch, and my kids and I LOVED it!)

From our Alpha Bakery cookbook, "N" was for Nibble Sticks
(Perfect with mugs of tomato soup on that cold, rainy day!)

"N" was also for Noodles! Yum! Haha, can you tell I love to incorporate food as much as possible along our alphabet path? :) All credit goes to my honey for these culinary creations, though, at least as far as main courses go. Snacks and desserts I can do, but actual meals are best left to the master! I asked him if he could come up with something to go along with Strega Nona, and, since he had already made spaghetti and meatballs for us the week before, he chose this:

Linguine with a creamy chicken and herb sauce and oh my, was it delicious! I am so lucky to be married to a man who loves to cook!!!

"N" was for Nana as we read Nana Upstairs & Nana Downstairs, and also had a chance to visit my own Nana, who got to finally meet Austin for the first time!

"N" was for New Mexico, adding two more pages to our state-by- state scrapbook:

We also enjoyed reading Bill and Pete Go Down the Nile, What Makes Day and Night?, and learning about Nutrition in Health and Manners. We had also hoped to go on a nice Nature walk near our house, but another snowfall made it too cold and wet for that. Our New Mexico skies and mountains were looking particularly lovely, though! :)

Numberbow! It brings back memories. I used that when I was student teaching and the kids always loved it. I think I'll have to do it for my kids now. Thanks for the reminder.

Love your alphabet path ideas, as always!!!!

I have been dreaming of doing it with my kids but all over the blog world they seemed overwheming, and i was left with dreams and feeling a bit like a failure... Your ideas are so much fun and i can do them with my little ones without going crazy and spending lots of money!!! You are my hero...God Bless you and your family!!!
