Day 5 we "celebrated" International Mud Day a day early with playing in the mud and making mini mud pies (basically choc pudding & cool whip mixed together and put into graham cracker crusts)!

That weekend we took a family trip to Luray Caverns and on the way there we let the boys watch Lego Batman movie ;)

It was a really good week. Lots of learning AND fun!! So much so that the bar was set and "America Week" just wasn't the same. Thank goodness for 4th of July stepping in to save the day ;)
