I think we picked the perfect week to have a home study unit of wool! You might of heard us midwesterners got hit with a snow storm this week. I was secretly wishing for this as we had not gotten a good snow yet this winter. It is most likely the influence of the knitting and the boy's father's intense love of wool clothing that lead us to this. Either way we have been enjoying ourselves.
Seriously, libraries rock. Out we walked with an arm full of books including wool, sheep, knitting, and at least one zombie book. So I shall just say you have been amply warned my friends. We are spending the next week or so certainly being sheepish!
On one of our snow days here at home we watch Sweetgrass. It is being featured in our local film fest next weekend and the boys and I thought it was perfect to get a jump start on the fest and to watch while the snow fell. I generally enjoyed it, though a parental warning; there is a one scene with an onslaught of some language that would make a sailor blush- just sayin. I got quite a few raised eyebrows from the boys on that scene!
