Reading Days

I remember, in my college days, we were given "reading days" to help us study for our finals. I don't remember cramming those days full of study. I studied a bit and played a bit and enjoyed having a few days off of class.

I have decided this week is going to be "reading days" for us. Not because we have finals ahead that we need to study. I just thought it would be nice to have a few days where we don't do our normal school work and I can allow my kids a little more time for free reading. 

 This is the perfect week for it since all of our classes and activities have been cancelled for the week in anticipation of the Thanksgiving holiday.
 I am still going to require some piano practice. They may not have a lesson this week but they need to review all their songs.

 There will also be plenty of chores to do to break up the day. There is always floors to sweep, dishes to be done and laundry to fold.
 So rather than doing school we are just going to relax and read, play and work. I am sure there will also be some movies and wii time as well. After all this is vacation week right?!

That is just what we are doing here at our house! We also have Daddy home which doesn't usually happen. Hope you have a nice vacation week, and Happy Thanksgiving!
