Laundry and Learning

Laundry, laundry everywhere! My darling husband, upon realizing that the overwhelming amount of laundry that had taken over our home was stressing me out, agreed to a trip to the local laundry mat. So we loaded up the van with SEVEN, yes seven, loads of laundry and spent a few hours tackling the mountain of clothing.

The girls and I rode our bikes to the laundry mat, while Daniel packed his in the van with the laundry. While the clothes washed we got our homeschooling done. As part of "Plant Week" Daniel and the girls went outside and dug up weeds and other green leafy things. Then the girls identified the different parts of the plants. We also learned that only green leaves make food. So all the pretty colored Fall leaves are actually dying off and not creating food anymore.

Then we took a family bike ride to a local convenience store to get cash and a bottle of water. The girls each got a free sucker from the nice clerk. Then we folded all the laundry, packed it back up, and headed home. All in all, it was a really fun experience and a relief to have all the laundry done at once and not have to spend the entire day working on it.
