We read some books.

And we had a favorite: We have been playing Jut-Aay (hide and seek) all week because of this lovely sing-song book.

We watched some fireworks – for the 5 November.

And played yet another serious school game:

The mother person surprised everyone by mopping the floor – I normally do this in the dead of night before I go to bed. I discovered the Se7en had no idea that the floor was ever mopped. Anyway, we had to have breakfast outdoors because the floors were wet.

    Hi there, I love to see the photos of all your books on the shelf. My husband is overseas (usa) for 5 days and I am desperately trying to buy some books on Amazon for him to bring home. Are there any books off the top of your head that would be good for 4 year olds? ummm…I have been through your booklists and am getting the Katie books for art, was considering DK Bughunter and Nature ranger – not sure if these are too old for them? I love the books you suggest, and have looked at the sonlight catalogue but not sure as the write ups are not very long. Longing for some pearls of wisdom…. Love Tammy.

    Hi Tammy – I realize the urgency of this question and I have a huge list of must haves in my head – I will get back to you by the end of today.

    Have a good day.
