This is our first week back after a few weeks, much needed, winter time break.
Amongst other things…the children continued to read a good amount of literature, listened to audio books and indulged in some delight led activities … while I tried to sort through some of the items we no longer need and got at least a quarter of the things listed and sold.
The children had a memory fest going through the box of audio CDs (so many Jim Weiss titles) and a stash of books.
