Food Rainbow

I can't believe it's already mid-week.  Our Disney trip will be here before we know it!  Today, we attended North Columbus Library's Preschool Adventures, as well as ran a few errands and hit the grocery store for a mini field trip to complete our food rainbow.  Here are some photos:

Our 'Food Rainbow,' waiting for a trip to the grocery store ... (I also must mention that we discussed that rainbow starts with 'R,' our letter for the week, which is why it's underlined in our picture.)
 Marking off the red band of her rainbow after finding tomatoes!
 Oranges?  Check!
 All done!  (We wrote the names of the different fruits and vegetables in the bands of their respective colors.)
 Making a lion mask at Preschool Adventures ...
'ROARRRRRR!'
