The Week That Was 3.46

May 23rd, 2011 · 6 Comments

Another week that was… It was slow and sluggish as we were in recovery after our bout with a bug…

And it has been cloudy…

Which means endless glorious sun rises…

There was ironing… of shirts made so long ago that I am amazed they weren’t totally forgotten.

And after ironing his way through everyone’s t-shirt he discovered this one and tells me we need to do more spelling… because that says “junior coach”…

And there was reading of books…

And someone springing a surprise on their mother… it worked, nearly died of fright!!!

And winged visitors dashing overhead…

And the youngest member has added a new favorite to his vast collection of favorite books. So our book of the week is this one as he carefully packs in a bazillion new words a day. This book is packed with new words and lots of things to spot and find.

And this is what the hoods got up to:
Hood #1: Is never ever coming out of the tree.

Hood #2: Has planned a marble run to climb the highest hills and fly over the bumpiest bumps… it is still in the planning phase!!!

Hood #3: Laughed till she cried…

At her little sister doing charades!!!

Hood #4: The reading bug may have hit… I am holding my breathe.

And his life has life been made, by the arrival of a suit. He has wanted one forever – he calls it his tuxedo. And has not changed out of it since it has arrived.

Hood #5: And shapes, shapes, shapes…

Hood #6: Tells me it is so very imprtant to do arting… right… I will take the message and get onto that!!! This girl needs projects!!!

Hood #7: Has finally confessed that she may have had something to do with that haircut!!! Just a little trim mind you!!!

    Hi se7en + 1! We saw your blog addy on the Sonlight blog list and came over to visit. Just love it! We’ll be coming back often to visit. :o)

    Oh! I should mention where we’re posting from! We live in the US – an Apache Reservation, Arizona. I call this place the “land of the scorpions”. We have creepy crawlies too, of the high desert variety!!!

    Hi Karyn… How fantastic to meet you!!! And all the way from the “Land of Scorpions”!!! My kids will be so impressed. I must say scorpions do give the chills – somewhat!!! But I have got a lot better at snakes… or tossing them into the neighbors!!! Hope you have a great week and please stop by and say hi again soon!!!
