The boys and I have been working in the basement. I've been working on organizing the "homeschool storage room" my husband built for me down there. I have boxes and boxes of supplies and although they have basic labels on them it has been really hard to find things. We are going to power through a couple more afternoons to get that finished and then I'll post some photos.
We call that storage room the "Mommy workshop" because it holds just about anything stored in the basement that would interest only the Mommy (homeschooling supplies, out-of-season and hand-me-down kid's clothes, Christmas decorations...). Kal-El was helping me label boxes today (very interested in writing right now) and also made several "No Daddy Allowed" signs to post on the entrance to the storage room. That should help keep things organized.
The boys brought all of their tools down to the basement and kept asking for new "projects" that would "help me." What would have helped the most would have been privacy, but I kept them busy. Me Too spent 30 minutes investigating the parts of a hinge I asked him to "install." Kal-El measured all of the romex (not live) with a caliper. When that wasn't enough, I gave them sandpaper blocks and a big piece of plywood.
In the school room both boys have been spending a lot of time with the geometric solids. Trying to find my geo solids sorting cards and miniature geometric solids to go with them was what inspired me to finally start the big supply organization project. I found the mini-solids today. Hopefully the cards will show up tomorrow. I have been doing my own work while the boys have been doing theirs, so I haven't taken any photos lately.
