In the days leading up to Thanksgiving, we read this book and chose to do a few activities from it. The boys had a good time. I really like these books from this publisher and mentioned them to our local library and the next time we went there they had ordered 10 of them. Totally cool librarians. So we have a pretty good resource for our science and history curriculum for the next few years!
Then we decided to do something a little different. Last year Eric made ribs and it was great but a long day for him. This year we stayed home and took it easy. Played in the snow, and then worked on a 500 piece puzzle for awhile. Once Harkin had napped we headed out to Jay Peak and ate at one of their restaurants. All you can eat buffet. The boys thought it was fun, and had a special treat- Shirley temples.
We came home to snuggle under the blankets- it is 14 degrees out- and watch the movie Planes. A simple but relaxing memorable day.
