We began our day with books.
Always a nice way to start a cold and rainy day.
and then we all worked together to tidy up the den (and find and organize lost library dvd's, videos, and their cases).
Trev placed a few treasures into his Neat Stuff Box
and then wanted to play Checkers.
So of course we did.
While Maddie played with puzzles next to us on the floor.
Madd dashed off for a movie, and Trev and his Mama enjoyed the next four chapters of George's Secret Key to the Universe. (We're liking it very well.)
We watched the rain fall.
And then the snow.
Magic School Bus Dinosaurs (the game) was the next play of the day
while Mama did some more cleaning.
And there was Spore
and Scooby Doo
Digging for Dinosaurs (a film)
and a visit from Grammy.
We made two different kinds of soup
(it was really snowy)
got the State tax forms sent off in the post
made Rice Crispy Treats
and made sculptures out of them...
a Mononykus (whose second leg shall be attached when he firms up enough to stand),
a Castle - which later evolved into a snake,
and a Snail.
National Geographic videos
and more dinosaur talk. Always the dinosaur talk. :)
There's been singing
Off to the library!
and for a couple of other errands....
and now we're home
and tucked in
and it's 10:31pm and the children are watching a movie and cackling wildly.....
