So, it was presidents and not snow that kept Peter home from school today even though it felt very much like a snow day. It seemed like everyone was bored from the minute they woke up but with a little effort we have been chugging through it.
We drew and drew and drew. I admit that I did not opt for monsters myself. Peter loved sketching some of these creepy creatures. I try to steer away from "how to draw" books in general (although there are a few good ones out there that I like - I might have to post about those another time). This one came from the library though so I'm not too worried about screwing up his art instruction with something that has to be returned next week.
An eclectic mix of favorite tunes was on hand. This is essential in my opinion for surviving both the long winter months and the parenting of young children. Does anything else pull you out of the day to day and remind you of who you are more than music? Oh and it's FUN. Yep, it's a must for me.
