Sick Day

Princess has been under the weather with a little cold. Nothing serious,
but just not up to "following directions". Thursday is a school day here, but
we left our "lesson plan" in the basket and just played "alphabet games.
We matched letters I wrote on the dry erase board with her fridge magnets.
She made letters and numbers out of her feather boa. We also read a few
(ok, many,many) library books.She was so well behaved that we made cookies together in the afternoon.
We love to bake together.Today we were supposed to join our play group
for our monthly "potluck lunch", but I cancelled. Princess was up a good part of
the night coughing.We missed last month, and I needed this "play date" possibly
more than she did, but I don't want to get everyone else sick.

I like the white board ideas and the boa. Oh so cute. Sorry you missed out on some adult conversation. It really is better to stay home when kids are sick.

You know the commercial where the man says "you can live on a deserted island or drik Flordia orange juice." I feel like we choose the deserted island this winter. I am afraid to go anywhere in fear that we might get the dreaded flu that I keep reading about.

Have a good weekend. You wrote lots of good ideas this week.

My homeschool buddies and I are all posting pics of our "home schools" as part of our idea sharing.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
