"What do you wanna do today?" Mama asked when it felt like a good time.
Yeah, I ask sometimes. Because sometimes I like to remind them that we can actually create our days, instead of just falling into them by default.
"Hmmmm..." says Little Son, "let me think..."
"Well, we can read some books, for sure," offers Mama.
"I wanna go to the Aviary!" piped up Madd.
"Can't go to the Aviary, Daddy took the truck skiing." (First time of the season.)
"Well, since it's so close to Thanksgiving, we could do some Pilgrim or Native American projects," offered their mother.
"Yeah, that sounds good," from Little Son, "and.... Hey! We could look at pictures of Long Lost Ancestors!"
I have no idea where he came up with that. But my ears perked right up.
Hey!.. "I actually have some..."
And so our day was officially begun.
But was soon interrupted - : ) - when Daddy came back from skiing, saying he was having truck problems, and didna wanna get stuck up in the mountains.
We looked at a couple of Thanksgiving-themed books, read some Corn-y jokes, and looked at a few pilgrim/colonial american/native american craft projects.
We decided to make lanterns, so we started those (we'll show you all about that tomorrow).
And... we headed downstairs to get the rumpus room and hall cleeee-eaned.
That makes the whole basement completely organized, cleaned, and tidy - thankyouverymuch.
Hmmm... that doesn't seem like much of a day, does it?
Then how come I'm completely exhausted?
All I can think about is a book and the couch. :)
So we'll see you tomorrow.
