"Children do not need to learn to be better, told what to do or shown how. If they are given access to enough of the world, they will see clearly enough what things are truly important to themselves and to others, and they will make for themselves a better path into that world than anyone else could make for them." John Holt
Dad and I had to go out and pick up a few groceries, Dora was the only one awake so she decided to stay home and watch a few shows on the Disney channel. While we were out we decided we should surprise the kids with a sweet St. Patrick's Day breakfast.
Dora also made me something green to wear for the day on her rainbow loom:
Dad took a break from painting the bathroom and decided to straighten up our big book/game shelf. I really did not know what I had at this point. Dora was happy when I found a book about teaching yourself crochet. She had been trying to figure out how to get to the second row and she was able to do that and more today.This was her first little piece but she worked on crocheting off and on throughout the day.
Dora and I also did a second coat on the cabinets in the kitchen and started painting another cabinet. At this point we are almost out of paint so may take a break for a few days.
Bubba and Bret spent much of their day in their room hanging out and laughing, getting online, playing Yugioh cards and the Nintendo 3DS.
Bret did come out and help me work on some of my kitchen cabinets were some of the screws had came out. He and Bubba also did several other small chores to help out.
Bubba, Bret, and Dora all made homemade pizzas for dinner which was quite delicious! They made their own pizza sauce and did a lot of veggie chopping and made me an awesome supreme!
