The routine away from school throws us all off. The kids ask “when do you have to leave?” I get to proudly exclaim that I am home and free.
Everyday they found ways to entertain themselves and I didn’t hear any “I am bored” complaints.
They made notes for friends
played with legos
together or by themselves.
I found a template for cards. So we painted
and colored “thank you” cards.We took in a sunset from Signal Hill
and looked across Los Angeles.
We had a movie night, painted our nails, played football outside and volleyball (with balloons) inside. They slept in on some days and woke up early other days. We started reading “By the Shores of Silver Lake” by Laura Ingalls Wilder and we cried to learn that Mary is blind and that their dog Jack has died. We are grateful that for the first time we had a week off for Thanksgiving. What a gift.
