Busy Ones

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

I found a template for cards. So we painted

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.
