We still have the cold going through the house. sigh. As soon as one gets better, someone else gets sick. I am truly thankful that it is just a cold. It makes for long homeschool week, though, when the kids don’t feel good and don’t feel like working. The fact that Mama doesn’t feel good, makes it even worse.
I cancelled Sabbath Week this week, due to kids not working as hard as they should. I have also cancelled our vacation week next week. This will be the first time in I don’t even know how many years that we haven’t taken the month of December off. We didn’t do a lot of crafting and extra baking this year, so we might as well keep working.
Recently, the kids made silly putty using this video:
Yes, they are goofy! lol And if you use too much food coloring, it will color your hands!
It did wash off pretty easily, though. They weren’t green for days. lol
