We continued in our tour of Europe, focusing on France primarily. Harry tried his hand at constructing a version of the Eiffel Tower using Wiki-Sticks; Ron just did some free art (a tent and a campfire, he says!) We also had fun taking a trip to IHOP and eating crepes and French toast! Not the most authentically French cuisine, I know, but the kids still had fun and enjoyed the food!
We had our first decent snowstorm of the new year, and so one afternoon I surprised the boys with an impromptu snow day, which they loved (as you can see!):
The boys continued making progress in math; Harry is finally almost through the end of Singapore Math 2A and Ron is learning how to count with coins.
Harry and Ron have also used their imaginations to create new superhero characters for themselves. Meet Lightning Man and Red Boy:
The boys were also great helps at my book launch party, greeting those who came in and directing their way.
And to demonstrate that we are just behind in several areas, we made "Christmas Cookies" in January. I should call them Epiphany Cookies or something like that!
Hopefully next week I'll have a more substantive summary to share; right now, we are still trying to just get our bearings straight as we start the new year! Thanks for visiting and hope your year is going well so far!
