a little bit of spring cheer
Today's weather has been so dreary! It has rained and rained all day. But on the bright side, we did not have to leave the house today. The children's piano teacher is taking Spring Break this week, so we didn't have piano lessons this afternoon. We were able to complete all of our schoolwork, and I even read a little bit extra in both Core K and Core 5 of our Sonlight reading. However, we are now behind in one of our Core 5 books, because it is MISSING! I have no idea where that book can be. I keep all of our current Sonlight read aloud books in a basket in our den. We misplaced another Sonlight book earlier in the year, but it was a read alone for Julie and Clay. After looking for it for several days, I finally just bought it for the iPad. Of course, we found the book the very next day on the bookshelf that I had looked through multiple times! I sure hope this book turns up before tomorrow!
To brighten the afternoon, the girls (mostly Leah) made tissue paper flowers. We placed them in two vases, and along with our spring placemats, now our table looks really springy. I guess I
need to take the Valentine's decorations off of the light fixture hanging above the table. Leah also made a pipe cleaner lei. I found a link to the decorations at The Homeschool Classroom. I cannot figure out how to link to the exact post, but you can go to The Homeschool Classroom (where I will have an article about helping your homeschool day run more smoothly on March 24), and scroll down to the post about spring crafts. Cute ideas!
I hope you have had a good Monday too!
