I’ve been posting on my Instagram what we’ve been doing to keep busy and to keep school going at home. I decided to move the posts over here and to continue documenting our days through pictures.
Here is what we did today. Day 6 of our Extended Break
We started our day by taking a little “field trip” as we called it and headed to Starbucks to grab some bean water (coffee) for momma and kids hot chocolates for the boys. It was nice to be out of the house for a little bit even though we stayed in the van.
We started our school time a little later today and my oldest completed today’s challenge from the 30 Day Lego Challenge. He is loving the challenge each day and building with his Legos. This is the challenge we are doing and you can start it anytime as your day one. We are on day 4.
While the boys did school work I made chili and put it in the crock pot to simmer all day. It made the house smell yummy and a comfort dinner for us.
To make the chili I cook ground hamburger or turkey. Add to crock pot with 2 cans Italian diced tomatoes, 2 cans mild chili beans, 2 cans tomato sauce, packet of chili seasoning, and garlic. Stir together and cook on low all day. When it’s time to serve garnish with cheese, sour cream, and crackers if you choose.
I allowed the boys to have a little extra iPad time today. The older two played Minecraft together for while and Littleman snuggled up on me and watched a couple videos. I’ve also been a little laxed on what the boys wear. Usually it’s been pjams or as you can see just underwear. Hey, if it makes them comfortable that’s all that matters. One rule though, when it’s time to eat dinner they must be dressed. No nipples at the table!
I made a yummy cup of coffee to keep me going during the afternoon before dinner.
After some relaxing and dinner, I played a fun game of Yeti Set Go with the younger two boys. It was a lot of fun and super cute. We definitely got some good giggles in before it was time for bed.
The boys are in bed and I can finally have a glass of wine and watch my favorite Thursday night shows.
Hang in there everyone, get some sleep, stay positive, tomorrow is a new day!
Also, I hope this makes you laugh as much as it did for me.
