It was an interesting day today. Sean woke up not feeling the best, with a sore throat and a mild headache. The other three were doing pretty well but also seemed a little off. We decided to keep things simple and have a good long read aloud time cuddled on the couch. We read poetry, science books, math stories and much more. Sean had me quiz him on his knowledge about his book Mighty Machines. I have to say I was impressed with the amount of information Sean has retained. He is following in his daddy's footsteps in becoming a walking and talking encyclopedia!
By 10 o'clock schools were announcing the cancellation of afternoon classes as the bad weather was making its way to the Island. We decided to hit the library as soon as possible to avoid getting caught in yet another winter storm. The kids enjoyed the change of pace and were delighted when a friend showed up too.
By the time we got home it was well past lunch time and everyone's tempers were beginning to flare. We all felt better after having some sandwiches. Emma-Lyn found another book to read about Roman numeral and we read that and she and I played some games to help her learn the numerals. After that they watched some Magic School Bus. Thankfully daddy came home early and we're all snug as bugs in a rug.
