Happy Columbus Day!

The boys were very excited that today was Columbus Day! We are in the middle of studying Columbus in History. History has been their FAVORITE subject, and I promised them extra History time today. In addition, Daddy had the day off work, which was definitely a plus, as it always makes for a very lazy relaxed school day for ALL of us.

During teatime we enjoyed a treat of Spiced Apple Cider and Pumpkin Spice Cookies in honor of Columbus, while we read and discussed a number of poems, thanks to Regina.

Just leave it to Dawn to find a craft or activity for ANY occasion! The boys especially loved making ships out of the couch cushions... and my DH was just commenting on how the couches needed vacuuming.

**Note the different size ships, the Nina being the smallest, the Pinta with extra sails since it was the fastest, and the Santa Maria being the biggest at over a whole whopping 80 feet long!

Hope you all had a nice Columbus Day too!
