Lippy had a great idea about stocking up on school supplies right now, while they're so inexpensive, to make CDPs to give as teacher gifts in December!! Since she actually IS a teacher, you should click here and go read what she has to say =)!
I am finding it a little frustrating that I had a husky-sized boy, followed by a slim-sized boy, followed by a husky-sized boy. This is making the passing-down-of-the-clothes a little tricky.
- Breakfast: bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs (and I decided on English Muffins)
- Lunch: sandwiches
- Dinner: Mrs. Weasley's meatballs (except with spaghetti instead of onion sauce)
- Treats: Treacle Fudge, Sugar Mice, Chocolate Layer Cake (in honor of Harry's first birthday cake)
(Next year, I think I'll try The Unofficial Harry Potter Party Book; it includes activities as well as recipes!)
Along with the delicious food, which will start being prepared today (wouldn't want anything to turn out badly for the celebration! I'd better test that fudge recipe THOROUGHLY before tomorrow!), we are going to do a sorting activity and some "homework" on "scrolls". I found a big package of paper rolls for adding machines or calculators, and we are going to make a scroll-timeline so the children can see how quickly the next few years of their lives are going to pass, and they can make goals for those next few years. (I will be using the rest of the "scrolls" in our home school; each child is going to make a timeline of the history of the world as we study history for the next few years.)
Finally, we will watch as many of the movies as we have time for! (So far, the children are allowed to watch 1-3.)
I hope it will be a fun day and memorable in a good way!
And now I am off to
