It was so nice just to have my daughter home this week from school for Thanksgiving! It gave her lots of opportunities for playtime with her younger sister who will be turning two next weekend. I think with our busy schedules sometimes I forget she’s just six and needs just as much play as ever with the schedule she has at school in first grade.
After School Playtime
This week they had a baby nursury with the baby dolls and even an airplane trip with them. There were lots of handprint turkey created too! It’s fun to see them begin to interact with each other more and crafting together has become a fun time.
After School Adventures
Local Living History Farm
It was a lot of fun to join Amanda and her children at a local living farm where the kids had so much fun learning about life long ago. I think holiday breaks are a great time to go on adventures with kids. Do you have anything special planned for the winter break?

What a wonderful week you had! We didn't get the full week off, but I enjoyed having my kids at home as well.

With all that has been going on I have been a little bit of a stranger to After School! One of New Kid's favorite books right now is Strega Nona's Harvest. It's amazing how many books he has written.
