Today began with our chores. And it only took an hour! Hooray. Now to get onto some more important things like:
A little game my son plays everyday.
Dump the bucket out
Fill it up
And we play it many times
Then we stole away inside a fort where we spent a good deal of our time reading. Or historical novel had a telegram in it so we went to google and found all sorts of goodies regarding telegrams:
and I remembered this, so we watched it and laughed and watched it again
and we pretended to deliver it several times.
Easy to play. Just draw a question mark on the paper and 5 houses on the Question mark (as above) then walk down the street and make up a story (ie. Bernard went walking down the street and 'WHO do you think he met? ' keep telling the story adding in the elements of what,where,when,why and when you get to the end ask "How did Bernard meet the 5 w's of Question Mark Street?" and have them tell you the story again)
A fun spelling game where you omit certain letters and they have to figure out the words. It feels very secret code-ish so it's always well received.
We snuggled with Buddy
