The kids Club is over for the year and they had their swim party for it Sunday. The toddler has bronchitis and about half the family has some sort of sniffle. I’m waiting for it to hit me. Needless to say it’s been kind of scattered around here what with saying ‘cover your face’ every 5 seconds. No such luck. Everyone will be sick, guaranteed. So we’re just hanging in with the basic stuff and it may be all we do through May. At this point they’re chugging through their workbooks happily. Free reading seems to agree with them, although my 4 yo would rather look at the pictures still than read. Wednesday we celebrated May the 4th with some star wars printables, they’re a subscriber thing we downloaded– so go to the link there if you want to sign up for those through YRH.
