|we are a couple weeks from finishing our cc year and this day was cc spirit day! so crazy clothes it was! this is as crazy as we get :)|
|we've been doing a poetry tea-time once a week at the suggestion of a few fellow homeschooling friends.|
we have chamomile tea, treats, and read simple (for now) poems while the boys listen quietly.
it's been a huge hit!
