Laundry Line

With the washer broken we invested in a 'new' refurbished one. After contemplating washing by hand in a basin with a wash board we decided that wasn't really practical, although sounding a bit fun to begin with the idea wore off quickly as we realized how much laundry our family of 4 had to catch up on since our washer decided to stop working. A few trips to the coin laundry but when it came down to it we needed a 'new' one of our own. And the day we put in the new washer...the dryer broke. Isn't that just always how it goes? We decided a dryer was much easier to live without than a washer. We have a nice line outside and its been warm during the day time. We brought our son's chair outside, and he at 8yrs got to experience doing his own laundry then hanging on the line to dry. Totally not minding it at all, we hung laundry early morning yesterday as we chatted about where our school day would take us.

Our daughters day consisted of sewing more of her Halloween costume and our son and I took a neighborhood walk, identifying plants, listening for animals, looking for tracks then completing some math. On break, they both engaged in a documentary on Japan's earthquakes and tsunami's. Both intrigued by the video, they were rather disappointed it was only an hour long video..I think this will lead into more about Japan, Earthquakes and Tsunami's.

It was a good Monday.
