We curled up on the couch reading, the Golden Goblet by Eloise Jarvis, a captivating novel about a young boy who aspires to be a goldsmith, despite having a cruel step brother who gets him involved in a crime. For the younger kids we have been enjoying Pelle’s new suit. Some of our favorite books this week were: the boy who held back the sea, pumpkin jack, the fisherman’s wife (Grimm’s fairy tale), the swamp angel and we are enjoying the King with horse’s ears and other Irish folktales, although I have had to skip a story or two because of our age level.
Owen is always finding ways to use our rainbow silk. Belle was busy finger knitting and Caleb made us a big fire in the fireplace.
