Today the boys gathered 10 items from around the house, measured them, and wrote the results in their ML books. This was the practical application of measurement rather than the arithmetic involved, but it was a fun activity.
We had a playdate this afternoon which was very fun; it also gave the boys the necessary motivation to get going on their lesson work before 10 a.m.
