One thing I did today was to separate their activities into folders so that they could have a new surprise each time they transitioned to the next part of their day. They were so excited every time they opened a new folder. It was too cute! I kept laughing every time they would gasp over a new worksheet or practicing handwriting. They really loved school today for the first time... this year I think! They kept saying they didn't want to stop.
Here are some pictures of our day-
Alex woke up at 7:30 and I enjoyed the first few minutes of his day with him as I usually do, singing and snuggling
Got everything set out for the day before the girls woke up.
Alex had some breakfast
While I took in some much needed coffee and did a little blog reading.
Awana workbook time.
Marah's Cubbies book had her create a card for someone who is sick. She made a card for her great-grandma who is having surgery soon. I forgot to take a picture of it but she drew a crabby patty, fries and a drink.
Alex had a hard time hanging in there. I need to figure out how to entertain a baby while all this is going on. Any suggestions?
Seeing how difficult it is to write with our left hands.

She did a pretty good job! Not perfect :) but that's okay!
Creating her own Thanksgiving story
Checking out what happens to rotten squash
There were other things we did today that I didn't get a chance to photograph, but you get the idea. We had a great day! And now it is 8:30 and the kids are all bathed and I am ready to put them in bed so I can enjoy the last couple of hours before I go to bed and start all over again. Gotta plan Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. Shopping and menu making! So excited!
