Columbus Day

I think I am becoming a bit of a hermit.  Usually, when Atley has the day off from school I have big plans to go there and visit here, see this and learn about that, well today we just stayed home. Maybe it is because we feel like all we do is run around. With soccer, piano, school, and church stuff staying at home is actually becoming a rare treat.  We decided to celebrate the reason for Atley being at home-Columbus Day. We watched a few short movies about Columbus on YouTube, colored a few maps of his voyage,  baked some yummy treats, and created our very own Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria.

The highlight of our day was the river we made in the back yard for the kids to sail on their own global adventure.  I got this idea from Pinterest (my new favorite addiction).  Using a few yards of tin foil with the sides folded up slightly to retain water, put a hose at the top of a slope and sail away!

It was a fun day, a little messy but fun!
