I recieved a sweet little card and candy bar from a dear friend for my birthday in the mail today. The kids were excited to see it was a Wonka bar, after reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory together. Wonka is a big deal around here though my friend had no idea what a sweet gift it really was to send!
We ate lunch in a nice little restuarant in Hemingway, SC. The food was Delicious!! We will definitely be eating at that little BBQ place again.
We did some reading with the iPad. We read about how the whale got his throat from Rudyard Kipling and the intro to Grammarland. We also read a little about the Red Tide from our Curiosity Files and the great Professor Ana Lyze. It’s always fun to get a little extra schoolwork in while you’re out and waiting.
We spent the rest of our afternoon at home.
I also scored a long list of great homeschooling books for the kids only for shipping. Over 30 books for $20! I’m so very excited about that. Can’t wait to get those!
Overall, it was a very good day for us. We enjoyed the time together. Tomorrow the kids will get outside to play. We’re hoping to get some swimming in before the end of the weekend too but we will see.
What are your weekend plans? Whatever they are, I hope they bring you as much joy as ours often do!
