The Week That Was 3.46

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

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 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!!!

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.

  1. So great to see all the faces we love so much. What a beautiful collection of short people you have been blessed with. Love your weeks full of arting – our art supplies have been neglected of late. Can’t wait for summer and no more extra-murals! Lots of love from all of us!!!

  2. Hay Jacki… Always good to hear from you… I know I should call you sometime… hope you are getting busy with some spring stuff!!! Lots of love from all of us!!!

  3. 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!!!

  4. 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!!!
