It has almost been a week again. In that time, I managed to do a bunch of stuff. I locked my keys in the car and missed the fishing day for the co-op on Tuesday . I took the kids down to see my mom that afternoon (after J. came home from work and got the keys back for me ). I met some new friends in Akron on Wednesday, went to the Memphis Kiddie Park on Thursday with the homeschool group, then went out to see “Spiderman 3” that night while an awesome friend watched the kids (It went well from everything she tells me). We stayed home and vegged out for a day Friday, and then went to a liberation party for my kids’ cousin who is moving in with his dad full time now today. Oh yeah, and I took my daughter shopping for “Hello Kitty” stuff including a pinata and paper lantern garland for her upcoming 4th Birthday which she is VERY excited about.
Thinking about it, I guess there have been some other neat things going on in the day to day. We drew a bunch of pictures, played with magnets and made our own, learned how to play Cranium Cadoo (which I really enjoy playing with them), saw new “Peep” episodes on TV and were excited to know they were making more! My daughter painted her body in mud and then bubble bathed it away and I learned my kids have never had a Rice Krispy Treat before (and that they like ’em, especially my mom’s way with chocolate chips). We made a new game called “That’s My Fish” by printing out the hex pieces from Board Game Geek, one of my favorite gaming sites and then played it using coins for markers. We have been watching a bunch of Pokemon today as they had a marathon which our TIVO graciuosly captured for us.
Here are some pictures from the week:
Hey, That’s My Fish:
Did I mention that I am geeky enough that I own a hand crank laminator? No heat of course.
I love making stuff.
