We have had fun, and really, I don't want it to end. But tomorrow, Tate goes back to school. It is a new school for him, and it is just a few blocks away. I am ready for the routine, and to meet new people, but I am used to having Tate with us daily.
We've done a few projects this weekend that the kids loved.
Firstly, I put out a set of watercolor paints for each kid, a spray bottle, good brushes, watercolor paper, and salt. The salt leaves a really cool texture when you put it on the paint when it is still wet. It absorbs a bit of the color, leaving behind beautiful patterns.
I bought Model Magic for the first time, (Michaels had a deal!) and we pulled out all of the playdoh toys to use with it. I couldn't stop squishing it!
Soleil will have a hard time when Tate goes back to school. She does every holiday break, and she asks and asks for him. I got a few things for her, and have them in her backpack for morning. Also (not pictured) I found every book we own about school and put it in a little basket for her.
We boiled eggs in the steamer (it works great!) for morning. I would say for the week, but Tate goes through about 3 eggs in a sitting.
I hung garland in the main living area for the kids to see when they come to breakfast in the morning.
And lastly, I took the time to program my Keurig, probably the most important task!
