Let's see. I implemented a new "rule" for Christmas break that the middles have to play a board game (by themselves or with each other) and read a Christmas story (but not ones they have repeatedly read over the years) before they can have electronic time. They will continue math lessons tomorrow and Friday, and can continue them if they are bored and they want to next week and the week after, but they are not required to.
It was getting pretty chilly out there tonight when I took the younger two to the grocery store and Jared took the boys to Bible Bowl. Not as chilly has poor Prince Edward Island where tomorrow they will get yet another dumping of snow and then Friday their windchill will be -22 Fahrenheit! Brrr....
|Not exactly what the math manipulatives were designed for, but it does look like a pretty neat house!|
|Abishai loves the baby that my parents gave Keturah that babbles and blows raspberries. Today he thought she was hungry.|
|So he fed her some french fries. No on got out the pretend fries and showed him how. That's all him just practicing what he sees.|
|Then he had to try them.|
|All comfy and cozy on this chilly day reading a book in mama's bed.|
|I do enjoy the bright blue skies of Indiana. Roads were a bit icy still because the temperature was below freezing.|
|My Aldi's finds! Sugar free Hazelnut non dairy creamer! Non alcoholic pumpkin cider!|
|Christmas shaped rainbow pasta, fun for the kids!|
