We made some Catechism Catchers (these can be ordered through Emmanuel Books) and the kids quizzed each other on deadly sins and commandments.
And, since we've been reading about invertebrates, we made some Jell-O fish.
We practiced our perspective and tried to draw Bethlehem.
It was all good. Good, good, good. Until dinner time. Ramona does not like spinach and mushroom quiche (or, "kwitchy" as she calls it. Where did she get that, Atticus?)
"No one can make me eat kwitchy!" she yelled.
She's right. No one can. No one will. That's not how we do food around here. Ah, well.
But all's right with the world again. Betsy and Ramona are now happily roller skating in the basement (it's finished living space ... don't ask....) and I'm looking back over what was basically a very, very good day. No rushing, no plans. But fun stuff. Good stuff.
How often can you say your kids had fun going over the Seven Deadly Sins?
And, hey, Atticus loved the kwitchy.
