Every once in a while we'll take a library morning, more than just our usual browse and pick up. I'll announce it in the morning and prepare a list of research assignments for the older children and computer places for them to explore that I've screened ahead of time. We also liked these math games here.

A fabulous, fabulous story which also happens to encompass early New York history. I read this aloud to the kiddos, editing a few portions I deemed too violent/gory, mostly pertaining to the treatment of captives by the Mohawk natives. We finished this afternoon and we all give this a hearty recommendation.
These lovely virtue alphabet coloring pages. The littles love them!
These historic paper dolls.
And chalking these beauties: a bit of which can be seen in the recent harvest photos.
