|Piles of snow in our hometown, 10 days after the snowfall. It's still here.|
|I've done quite a bit of art journaling and crocheting this week as I have not felt like doing too much else. :-(|
This week has been okay. We are easing back into our pre-snow routine, getting out quite often, going to visit mom, seeing friends. I even did a tiny bit of shopping yesterday, stopping by Family Christian to pick up something I had ordered online. I think that counts. Otherwise, the grocery store and the library have been the only places I have been. We got a really good book from the library the other day, The Slaves of Socorro, another installment in The Brotherband Chronicles and we have been doing that each evening for a read aloud. It's very funny so far and we have had a lot of LOL moments. John Flanagan has some good insights into human nature that make us chuckle and a humongous vocabulary, which stretches us and has us looking words up nightly. (So this counts as school,of course.) Some of my fondest memories of elementary school were when my teacher in fifth grade would sit and read to us for 15-20 minutes in the afternoon.
