It certainly is Monday. I actually enjoy Monday. Monday is a day to start fresh, and Mondays after holidays seem to have an even fresher feel to them. The Princesses may not agree, as I had a hard time getting them out of bed this morning. All Princesses, including myself, picked up a stomach bug over the weekend. With the help of colloidal silver and pepto bismol, we are all well, but I didn't want to risk exposing other people to us, so we cancelled Girl Scouts today. Princess Tarja was furious. However, I am happy to report that nobody has any more signs of illness as of this evening. Princess Abbey will go to her archery lesson tonight.
This morning, it was my morning to turn in my Avon order. That's always a little bit crazy, as I encourage and field last minute orders from customers. I got that finished exactly by my noon deadline. Princess Melody went with me to take an Avon catalog to a new customer. We picked up bean and cheese burritos for brunch at a nearby burrito place. Then, Tarja and I made some Huichol string art Christmas ornaments for our Christmas tree. Abbey worked independently one some of her lessons and then we finished up her tenth lesson in Forestry and Wildlife Conservation. We read Mere Christianity out loud, which brought forth a discussion of how loving our neighbor as ourselves, and forgiving others does not mean that we condone bad things that others do, but that we pray and hope that people that do bad things will be cured of their need to do them. It was very interesting. After that, we looked up and printed out a bunch of printables to assist with our unit study of New Jersey that we are doing for a state fair that we are having with our local homeschool group. I believe that I have found all of the information that we need plus more. This will become a very gigantic lapbook.
Have a Great Day!
