Mimi lost one of her earrings in the back yard right before leaving for home. The kids searched on hands and knees for about an hour, but could not find the missing earring. It started to rain again, and they were soaking wet from crawling around in wet leaves and grass. So, they came in for a warm bath and a snack.
We spent the afternoon folding laundry: Clover put herself in charge of teaching the boys how to fold socks. They caught on really quickly and loved being able to help! After laundry time, we had a snack & Clover showed the boys how to add 3 pieces of popcorn to 3 pieces of popcorn to get 6 pieces of popcorn. She re-arranged the piles of popcorn to show them that adding 5 plus 1 and 4 plus 2 also add up to 6. I spent some time working on times tables with her, and we also did some review work on borrowing and carrying.
Indigo, Willow, & Nova wanted to read and snuggle on the couch. So, we did that while Clover worked on her knitting.
Tim got home a little early & we made quesedillas and listened to the rain. The dogs were restless, so Clover played with them while Tim entertained the boys with blocks.
Now everyone (but me) is sleeping!
Such a sweet, simple day...
