Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day!

Hello Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We have a long weekend here with the celebration of Martin Luther King day here. So it has been nice having more time to play, relax and regroup.  I spent some time reading and yesterday, a grocery run to three different grocery stores (yes, I have issues) to get the week’s food. I used to plan whole weeks ahead for our meals and then shop one day with no stress for the rest of the week. But somewhere during the holidays, it fell apart.  So I am feeling positive about this week. More time for family.

Today I am planning on sprinkling in some fun education and activities to celebrate Martin Luther King’s birthday. First thing I will do is remind them is that his actual birthday is January 15th. Then we might read a book on The March on Washington that I think I saw Apollo take out from the library on Friday. A little craft would be great and I have recorded a show from PBS on The March on Washington so we could watch that. Then we can talk about it and also the similarities and differences between the book presentation and the television. I want to know what they know from school and then take them further.

So let’s see how far I can get through the activities I plan for them today.

Hope you all have a blessed day and have time to reflect on a very special man named Martin Luther King Jr. today.
