Who’s Your Teacher: A Couch Adventure
Tea and Lessons From the Couch
With many a protest, we have informed our children that the school closures are in effect until further notice. They have been working hard in learning from the resources I have found on Youtube. I am certainly not a teacher, so online resources are a blessing. Last week, my boys wrote and illustrated a book, inspired by Lunch Doodles with MO. Mo Willems is the children’s author of the Elephant and Piggie books. If you have never read these to your kids or grandchildren, they are great. As an adult, I find them hilarious and easy to read. I Really Like Slop! is my daughter’s favorite.
Here are my children’s interpretation of the pigeon.
We have also been learning about spotlight animals with the free Home Safari series at the Cincinnati Zoo. Our favorite animal was the red panda. Unfortunately, they wouldn’t make good house pets. Looks are deceiving because they look quite cuddly.
Have you ever watched travel videos for fun? Travel videos are not only informative but the perfect way to travel from your couch. We are doing some research on where we want to take our family trip once we become debt-free so this is a great excuse to watch videos. So far, our choices are Hawaii, Australia/New Zealand, and Europe. If you have been to any of these places, which would you pick?
Sourdough pretzels from this weeks baking project. Actually, I have made a lot of things but this is the only one that I remembered to take a picture of.
So, that’s what I have been doing this week. How about you?
Today, I thought I would share some of my favorite projects with you. Here is a small compilation of past projects. If you want more photos and information, just click on the picture and it will take you to the post.

I am joining in with the ladies at T Day over at Elizabeth and Bleubeard. I don’t have this Mahamosa Strawberry Lychee Sencha Tea but it sounds good so I put it on my Amazon wish list. Recently, I have gone through a lot of teas in my stash so I am eyeing up some new ones. Any sugesstions?
Don’t forget to tell me where you like to vacation: Hawaii, Australia/New Zealand, or Europe?
Happy Tea Day,
