No School

So today the kids were home for Veterans day. I love school. I love sending my kids off for a few hours. So today I had to re-adjust my day. No me time. :) I decided to do some things we have never done. I got out moonsand that was a gift last Christmas and we had not opened yet. The kids loved that. I bought a pomegranate last night for today. That was also a winner. They had a good time eating the seeds and drinking the juice. It also took up a good amount of time. Right now we are eating caramel apples. I have never made them from scratch. I used to buy the caramel in sheets and mold them around the apple. Today we melted caramel down and dipped them. It was not a beautiful project but we had a good time eating them. In fact, Ethan is still eating his, about an hour later. He is so slow at everything! But today that is okay. It means he is not running around fighting with his sister.

It is now 3 o'clock and I still have a few hours before daddy comes home. Not sure what we will do next.

I also booked the last leg of our WDW trip this morning. Prices went down $16.00 each person today and that was enough for me. I want to make sure to get the flight time that I want. So now we are all set!
