A Fun Weekend

We got up early Saturday morning and headed to Lowe's for the Build and Grow Clinic, where the boys assembled school buses. Then we explored the store, stopping to look at whatever caught the boys' attention. We looked around for almost an hour and were asked if we needed assistance by at least a dozen associates.

After we left Lowe's, I took the boys to buy a Lego set and then we ran a couple of errands. When we got home the boys immediately began building their new Lego set and spent several hours playing with it. Then we played math games until well after midnight.
We slept in this morning and just sort of loafed around until it was time to go to Weymouth Woods. Today, we went on a hike and learned all about how the long leaf pine and other regional plants and animals benefit from controlled burns. It was really interesting, and the boys and I learned a lot. I never really thought about how much fire changes the environment and how much plants depend on these changes. We got to do a little off trail hiking and saw some really interesting things. Also, D go to hold a butterfly. I'm really glad that we were able to attend today.
When we got home, we worked on math, grammar, and critical thinking. We finished off the day by playing with Lego's and watching a movie.
