As for today, besides lots of fluids and down time (we are still recuperating), we are learning about the drinking gourd and the underground railroad. What amazement my little ones have about this...especially when I am trying to tell them that is really happened- it is not just a fictional story! It was real! Wow, their eyes wide open with awe and with many questions.
I am trying to use this time wisely with lots of story books and not so much TV! Although that is hard to do with sick ones. I try to remind myself it is my efforts that count. So, today, I am giving it my best effort!
Here are some other books we are enjoying today:
That's it for now! I'm off to gather tons of pillows and sleeping bags and make a heep in the middle of the den b/c it's time to read books!!! I'm even going to surprise them with hot cocoa and a treat afterwards :)
But for now, books and getting well is our thing :)
