We had days out to places like the Children's Museum and the One-Room Schoolhouse, days at home with a quieter pace, and days for visiting -- like our trip to see Grandpa and Grandma Fulk:
One day Mommy and Rachel went together to get their hair cut. I think it was Rachel's very first time to have her hair cut at a beauty salon.
One of the highlights of the vacation was a jar I came up with (thanks to an idea from Heather). It contained little activities to do -- one each day. The children took turns drawing one out in the morning, and fondly named the jar the "Funland jar". The activities included things like:
-- making new playdough
--making leaf sun catchers
-- a trip to the dollar store
I'm contemplating a similar idea for the month of December.
