Home life

We resumed preschool activities with a vengeance today... this was mostly to keep Claire occupied and happy since we stayed home all day. (we are staying home in an effort to stay healthy for Friday's surgery.) It amazing what you can pack into a single day for me the highlights were quiet time and gardening. Both girls were snacking on swiss chard and both tasted some tomatoes right off the vine. They also played in the sand box and Claire helped toss out rotting oranges. It was at this point that I realized that one of the things Claire needs during these days at home is a good dose of chores to give her a sense of purpose.

Congratulations on your new insight. That sounds like a good plan. Claire is eager to please and this sounds like a good time for implementing some chores.

I can just see the little girls munching in the garden like little rabbits. Maybe a little chore chart for Claire? Love & hugs, Nanna
