Yesterday was Diwali.....but I forgot to come back and "release"
Princess and I read a couple of books about Diwali,
(I'll list them on my sidebar)
and we were going to pick up some Indian food
for dinner, but it snowed here!! It started out as freezing rain and soon became..
Reminded me of the story we read last year about Diwali
We were so blown away by this, that we did very little
"school" at all.Instead we made homemade tomato soup for lunch,
and put the winter sheets on the beds.
We did use these sites to learn about the holiday
and for some pictures to color..
As it got dark, we lit some candles...
I know they are supposed to be oil lamps, but this is what we had.
I am all about using what we have on hand. ;-)
It was also my Goddaughter 's Birthday...her 21st Birthday!!
Where did the years go? Hopefully we will get to see her soon,
she has been very busy working full time and going to college
for a degree in Early Childhood Education. We are very proud of her!!
