Hat Day!

We had a very self-directed day today. Angel and Chrishad a morning reading marathon without any prompting from me. Yay! They also played math and geography games, and practiced singing songs. Angel worked her way up to Chapter 2 of her rainforest journey.

Today was also Hat Day. Here’s Angel, in her gold Hello Kitty hat. Angel Hat

Chris decided to go for a hood instead of a hat — the hood on his Captain America costume. Here he is wearing his hood and holding Angel’s hat like a gold shield. Chris Hat

Up tomorrow: Appreciate a Dragon Day!

Dress Up Your Pet and Other Matters

Today is Dress Up Your Pet Day! We don’t have any pets, but we didn’t let that stop us. The kids each picked out an animal from their toy collection to stand in as their pet for the day, and came up with a fun way to show off their animal fashion sense!

Angel wasn’t going to be limited to plain old off the rack clothes. Instead, her FurReal Friend got its own makeshift Angel Original. Angel's Pet 1 That included a toilet paper scarf and a washcloth-inspired hooded cape. And check out the snazzy blue sandals! Not satisfied with only one outfit, her fashionable furbaby got a second outfit. Angel's Pet 2 This one included a small purple plastic hat to hold the washcloth in place.

No fashion design for Christopher, though. He knew just what to do for his pet. What’s even more intimidating than a dinosaur? Chris's Per 2 A superhero dinosaur with Spidey powers, that’s what! The Spiderman costume may not have been the best fit for a T. Rex, but that didn’t make it any less fun.

Once we were finished dressing up our pets, we journeyed into the rainforest for a look at the forest floor and the undercanopy, with our new science curriculum. Then we made candy out of chocolate fondant. Another reading marathon before bed rounds out the day!
