Growing up I remember looking forward to vacations. We counted the days until there was no school and we could play. My children have a very different perspective of vacation. Yes, our schedule is different, but really, we still spend time learning. The company B works for takes the week between Christmas and New Years off instead of taking a bunch of one day holidays during the year. As a result, we always have him home for about 10 days around Christmas and love it.
We played lots of Legos.
We went to a flight museum. In the cockpit of a fighter jet…
Little One helped Tiger build a robot while Pumpkin Pie and Butterfly went to a planetarium show and Strawberry hung out with me.
We played many games of Dominion and we ate good food.
We also spent time reading A Christmas Carol and holding a sick baby.
Today, Butterfly and Tiger worked on memorizing poetry and lines for their audition at co-op tomorrow and Butterfly worked on making a Chinese lantern with the help of B.
