a day off

a day off

A day off from school. Do you remember what a treat that was? The kids were so happy to be able to sleep in yesterday and get a head start on the weekend. It rained on and off all day, so that kept us indoors doing all matter of fun things.

There were games played, (the boys and I finally figured out how to play The Settlers of Catan), a wooden model of a race car built, a quilt quilted, cookies made (and eaten), many musical instruments practiced, other people’s children babysat, books read, and okay, there were some video games played as well.

Vegetable soup and cornbread for dinner, Cars 2 watched and enjoyed, and four chapters read of our family read-aloud book, The Giver.

A simple, wonderful day at home. Nothing better.

Have a wonderful weekend!
