We spent a week learning about penguins and Antarctica. I had planned to cover Antarctica in a day, but the kids had other ideas. Finn adores penguins.

We read lots of penguin books, walked liked penguins, dove for fish in the living room, listened to various penguin sounds on the computer and did a whole lot of penguin pretending. The kids also watched Happy Feet which I thought was a sorry excuse for a movie. The plot was a bit jumpy and convoluted and the ending was weak. Whatever. It was about penguins and made the kids happy.

By the end of the week, Maeve decided to be a killer whale and eat all of the penguins.
