It's been a week of "slacking off" around here - easy to tell by the late hour of today's post. We had a very good time doing too much of each of the following:
(Click on the photo to see the notes)
*Visiting the pool in the evenings
*Reading silly stories and (finally) picking The Boxcar Children back up
*Making yo-yos and sewing by hand
*Reading Jack and Jill (Alex Cross #3) - me NOT the kids
*Watching 90210 (again me NOT the kids)
*Buying and then eating lots (ok REALLY lots) of gourmet food from Harry's and Krispy Kreme (YES - KK IS gourmet)
*Watching movies from Blockbuster (because I can't find two that I need to return to Netflix)
*Painting with watercolor crayons
*Going to lunch with Grampy and then playing in his HUGE (and doggie-poo free) backyard.
*And right now the kids and Daddy are at the movies seeing Wall E (thereby giving me 2 hours of blissful silence)
*Writing and sending cards to friends
In the midst of all this playing I did get some household things taken care of - like:
*picking up the Honda from the shop (again, but hey it's still cheaper than a car payment - and it was just the battery Praise God!)
*Re-hanging Grampy's curtains and helping him with the computer
*Registering the kids for Bible School (which begins tomorrow evening)
*Registering the kids for a homeschool art program offered by our church
*Cleaning up the den and dining room (ok, we did that today because after a week of playing as listed above it was a TOTAL disaster area)
*Deciding (mostly) on the homeschool method and curriculum we will use for the next few years - more on that later.
*Oh and I blogged for you guys EVERY day this week (it's really for me as I LOVE each of you and the comments you leave and the blogs I read daily).
WOW - when I list it all out like that I guess there wasn't as much slacking as it seemed - now I know why I'm so tired at the end of the day - Phew!
Thanks for all your love and support this week - it is fantastic. I truly enjoy your friendship.
I'll keep you posted!
