Then we watched some Snowboarding and Freestyle Skiing. Caitlin's skiier made it through, but we didn't get to see that yet, and DJ's snowboarders were not in the slope style, but we did get to watch a young man named Sage, from the USA take the gold in that event. How exciting!
Then, after lunch, we were outdoors doing yard work. The lawnmower would not start, so I planted some of the flowers I bought last Friday. My new tire garden is coming along, I need four more tires, and they need to be painted. We got some raking done, and picking up sticks and garbage blown around from this nasty Winter. A lot of my plants were damaged this Winter, it has been so cold. They have been trimmed back and are already starting to come back, bigger and better I hope. I planted Peonies, Bleeding Hearts, and some fruit bushes today.
Caitlin, and I, painted the cabinet nobs in the kitchen black, added a nice touch, and I started working on her special birthday plates. I will share those later.
Last week we started the Virtual Tour of the United States, with Alaska. I need to find some info on the Exxon Valdez spill for them to ponder. If you want to add the tour to your Geography lessons, you can follow along on my Pinterest board. This is actually to go along with our popsicle stick game to learn the states and the capitols. We continue our other History work as well.
I have not yet decided for tomorrow, but will probably be similar to today.
