The Third Day of Christmas

Stockings today: A small rock and gem excavation kit for each boy from the new teacher store in our town. The Lambs got right to work in the morning and got some rocks and gems out. They worked on it for awhile and then took a break, this may keep them busy for several days. Lamb 3 got his rocks out the easiest, Lamb 1 was the slowest-he was careful not to break any as he worked. This was a good project to teach that excavation and archeology can take weeks/months/years/decades.

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me three French hens.

Third Day of Christmas Treat:

Cornish Hens
We cooked 5. Lamb 1 and 2 finished theirs. Ram, Ewe, and Lamb 3 had leftovers for the 4th day of Christmas treat. Lamb 1 and 2 thought it was great to have their own chicken! We may not do this again if they need more than one chicken each.

Today the Lambs played and worked on their rock and gem kits. Ewe ventured out to do a little shopping hoping to get some after Christmas deals and use some coupons before they expire at the end of the year. I had a coupon to use at Chick Fil A and that was the busiest place I went all day. Ram is on vacation so he read a book most of the day and then cooked dinner. We are celebrating Christmas with Ram's parents next week so Ram and I wrapped all their Christmas presents today too. This was the only wrapping I did this year. Ram also hung up some posters for homeschooling, that is another post. Lamb 3 stayed in his new footie pajamas all day.
