Round sheep, square cows

The kids are on vacation this week. Lucky me, I’ve got the whole week to keep them busy and mostly out of the house to burn off some energy if I don’t want to lose my mind by this weekend.

We spent this morning at SeaWorld San Diego and even though they do have cows there, we didn’t see one today. But we got to play with manmade freaking cold ice lovely snow and sled down a slow slope to put us in the Christmas spirit. Now I’m all pumped up to do some Christmas shopping!

Tonight we read a really funny book called Yours Truly, Louisa by Simon Puttock about a pig making many anonymous requests to its farmer to keep the place clean.

 And in the book I found round sheep and square cows! Just don’t try to fit the round sheep into the square cow. You know it won’t work.

And look, they even have an oval pig, lovely! Here is more of the square cows and round sheep a few pages later, for your enjoyment.
