Days One and Two

Of what you ask?  Well official out of school days.  I mean, really, Saturday and Sunday do not count.  Yesterday was pretty laid back as Zachary was at a friend’s house most of the day.  Then when he came home he brought a couple of other kids so I had five kids in and out of the house and playing and all that.  Just being kids enjoying a wonderful beautiful day in outside play – the way it should be. 

Sunrise yesterday.

Forgot to share some Garage Hockey pictures from Friday first.  The kids set up goals with Coke cases and the puck was soon a smashed soft drink can (after they got some trash shoved around!).  They had more fun.  One would drop the “puck” and the others went to work.

Today was cooler.  WAY cooler.  I think our high might have made 45.  But some cool clouds this morning.

So today first we built a gingerbread house.  That was fun but boy are they hard to get to stay up.  Then we made peanut patties and fudge.

Finally, we went to see a train.  This man has taken some old trains and buildings and has been rebuilding and fixing them up.  Zane pointed out that he really needs an engine.  If you know where there is one…

I think that takes care of the last couple of days.  Back tomorrow.  Or maybe Thursday.
