Facing the mid school-year hump?
Lacking energy while the kids seem to be over-energetic with all things disorderly?
Yeah, our last few weeks have felt like this. =)
We took Friday off (call it an inservice day).
The older kids like these days:
popcorn & movies, board games,
a day free from routines.
For the Littles I layed out some
in random places.
The kitchen table had a Ladybug craft (This is our Ll week), & a phonics tray. These were a hit once they finally saw them (discovery was part of the fun).
On the coffee table I layed out math manipulative blocks.
1 thru 10.
Bryson loved them, and TJ joined the fun. They made a stair tower.
