Library Day

This morning O6 and I got up relatively early (7:30) and had breakfast. S8 slept in a bit, but we’re all a bit jet-lagged so I’m not pushing the sleep schedule much.  That gave me and O6 a chance to work on her math with some relative quiet, which was good.  She is a lesson behind S8 (who would have finished the entire practice book by now if I let her).   We worked through the daily lesson: number of the day, writing the date, working with the birthday graph, money, telling time, solving a pattern problem.  She did her worksheet side A with me, then I left her to do side B while I grabbed a shower.

S8 woke up shortly after. We did her math lesson, then I put dinner together and we headed out for the library.  It was a beautiful fall day, so we planned to walk up.  We went through the woods, which are still mostly green but definitely have a hint of color going on.

At the library, the kids each picked out 5 recreational reading books.  I found a Halloween craft book that looked really fun.

We checked out our books, then walked next door to the little Village Pantry store. I let the girls pick up a bag of sour apple-flavored hard candies. We also found some fall-shaped sprinkles for our inevitable ice cream treats.

Finally, we stopped in at Wittenauer’s for lunch. S8 got a PB&J panini, O6 had a cheese panini, and I had a turkey club. We all got treats for dessert: cookies for the girls and biscotti (mama cooky) for me.

Then we walked home via the road, through the church.

The girls worked on their Europe scrapbooks for a bit. This weekend we plan to get some photos printed so they can put them in their journals.
