It was a busy, fun week, but I'm glad it's over.
Their favorite part of Heritage School this year?!
Either the marches, military commands, cavalry drills, and meal of hot beans and hard tack in the blazing hot sun as they were learning about the daily life of soldiers during the Civil War
the ball (complete with the hoop skirts, the Virginia Reel, waltzes, and dance cards) on the last night...
well, there's a contrast for you!
we are slowing it down and staying home...
all week long.
We canceled or rescheduled everything that we had on the calendar.
So we can rest,
and play games,
and read books,
and pick from my overgrown garden,
and spend time together,
and see friends (but only if they come over here;)
Because we are just staying home.
I like the sound of that!
3.-4. Washable markers and a spray bottle of water=awesome coffee filter art!
5.-6. Sharpie permanent markers and cardstock projects:)
7. Cute coasters from 16 cent white tiles from Lowe's:) We colored the entire top of the tile with colored Sharpies and then used a straw to drop rubbing alcohol in tiny pools over the top. We'll add details with Sharpie again when the tiles are dry, then glaze with a clear protective coating. Oh, and add felt to the back.
8. Catching up on our reading;) The two year old has this one memorized, but then again Sandra Boynton books are pretty catchy!
9. So, I hadn't checked the garden in a while...wow!
