Take Five: C9 and C8 learned a little more about measuring with the US Customary system. They reviewed inches and feet and leared about sixteenths and eighths. They measured things around the house.

Other: We had a lot of fun this week decorating our tree. We decided to do all out decorations made from food. It was fun to think of some ideas and the kids had a lot of fun making them.
