Lazy days and grasshoppers

January is more than half over, and we're still easing into the New Year. The homeschool group started back up with park days and activities, but the boys have unanimously decided that they aren't interested for now. They'd rather stay home. It has been a great thing for all of us, and we're all thoroughly enjoying getting back into old hobbies and starting new ones. We've spent a lot of long, lazy days playing with pattern blocks, reading Magic School Bus books, playing with the toy money and cash register, and working on new projects. As I write, the three boys are working together, building with their Marble Works set.

Today Paxton asked me how far grasshoppers could jump (20 times the length of their body, in case you were wondering) We read about grasshoppers, got out the tape measure, had our own long-jump contests, and measured random things around the house. We watched a hummingbird today too, the first to visit my new feeder.

This is as simple as it should be.
