Back to normal

The girls loved camp. We picked them up Monday afternoon. There were around 60 campers there for the weekend retreat, a good number to be able to make some new friends. They didn't want to come home. It was the first time I had been there, and it is a very nice camp, with old fashioned cabins. So many camps are now changing to dorms, but this one still had quite a few cabins. On the way back, we stopped in Atchison KS, home of Amelia Earhart. So, that prompted a quick lesson on her when we returned home. Monday was also Martin Luther King Day, so we had a lesson on that.

Tuesday my girls had their dream idea of school. They spent the day from 9-5 in front of the TV! Actually, we watched the swearing in of our new president, the parade and some programs about the history of the white house and Washington DC, as well as the history of some presidents. A good day full of history. Along with the inauguration came a list of new spelling words associated with the inauguration and our new president.
