A backward sort of day, in which I am finally caught up, by the way

The sunshine was so beautiful this morning as we broke our fast with dinner! There's silliness afoot as we celebrate Dr. Seuss' 106th birthday, so we are doing things backwards.

Mmmmmm! Grilled cheese sandwiches and steamy tomato soup.

After morning lessons we had a couple of friends over for lunch: green eggs and ham sandwiches and popcorn.

Read lots of silly rhyming books written by, who else? Dr. Seuss!

We wore our clothes backward. Even Oliver wore his overalls the wrong way around.

Made and borrowed silly hats. Just for fun.

Gave backward hugs. times five.

And just had loads of fun.

After our friends went home, little ones went down for naps, big ones finished afternoon lessons and Aunt Jayme made the dessert - monkey bread!

By the time he got home from work, Josh had missed all of the fun. So we finished the day with breakfast. And of course, it was green eggs and ham.

Whew! what a day. I'm slightly exhausted.
