"Monk"ing Around!

Today I was bathing Holly and Jaren. It had been a messy day (read- Jaren and chocolate in the shopping cart) and he needed a good scrub. When I got the two clean this is what I found in the living room:

Windows blacked-out with couch cushions and diapers stuffed in the holes to make sure it is extra dark....................

And the two older kids doing their schoolwork by the candles in the fireplace.

Upon asking them what they were doing, their reply was this:

"Mom, the monks and scribes wrote everything by candlelight and they did really good work."

We are learning about medieval times in history this year and they just learned about Canterbury and the monks. However, they are NOT doing was spelling. So, they must be learning something. *happy mom moment*
