We’ve had kind of a strange week around here, with both kids having some kind of low grade sickness that we thought were allergies, but seem to be a cold, but we can’t really tell and it is causing lots of runny noses and coughing…. uggghhhhh. Ready for cold AND allergy season to be over.
Before the sickness set in, we did manage to get in some strawberry picking at our favorite farm. We got lucky with beautiful weather and enjoyed some ice cream after filling our bucket.
We spent mother’s day weekend at the beach!
On our way home we stopped at a state historic site that none of us had been to before. It was the Governor’s home in the late 1700s. We explored the gardens and took a tour of the house.
Seeing inside the home was neat, because we recently started watching Sofia the First and I was able to relate things to that… i.e. “This would have been Baileywick’s Office” and “This is where Amber and Sofia would have had their tea parties.” It actually kept Maribel’s attention really well.
In the kitchen Maribel got to try her hand at grinding cinnamon, nutmeg, and black pepper. We were all exhausted by the time we left, but it was a cool experience!
We need to get back on track this week with our letter of the week. We moved on to I last week, but didn’t do much at all… just some flash cards and one worksheet.
