First off I have to show you what my daughter and I wore to week 2 of Julie!
Here is an up close shot....
And a full length shot...
So as the girls arrived we started out the night playing BASKETBALL!
They actually just played HORSE. But, they really liked it! After about a half hour we headed in for book discussion time. On the way in we had to laugh at ourselves and all our matching minivans! LOL
For discussion time I read the girls the Peek Into the Past in the back of book 2. Then I also read to them from the book Don't Know Much About the Presidents. Since there is such a big time just from Molly (1944) to Julie (1974) I started back in 1944 and read about all the Presidents since. There is a good timeline at the bottom of the page. So it gave the girls a good idea of what happened from the end of WWII to the end of the Vietnam War. I also read to them from the DK book of Presidents the section on Richard Nixon.
For snack we had Tuna Noodle Casserole and Herbal Sun Tea.
After our snack we worked on our MACRAME Keychains!
My daughter and a friend working together on their macrame.
After craft the girls worked on a report similar to what Julie did in book 2. At the end of the year we are going to have an American Girl Family Night and their reports about themselves will be on display. HERE is the worksheet I gave them to get them started.
Here they are working on their writing.
P.S. Oh, and as you can tell I happened to find head kerchiefs for all the girls this week! They looked adorable in them!
