Week of November 12 (from the backside)

It was a productive week. We got school done each day, and attended a nature class through the parks and rec department. We had a great Girl Scout meeting in which all the age levels looked back on Veteran's Day, and we sent a large package to some soldiers (letters and cards). My girls learned how to fold a flag, and helped put together some packages for Operation Christmas Child.

Some of you may be waiting to hear about the art show....we ended up not attending. We had a major meltdown that day, and it prevented anything further from happening. So, we just stayed home. I was bummed, but what are ya gonna do? Some day, she'll outgrow these meltdowns...or at least that's what I'm telling myself.

Here is a photo of our Mercury Lapbook! I'm so excited about it, and I can't wait to finish up our Venus one. I'd like to do a Thanksgiving one, but we'll see if that happens this week or not! I have lots of other things we need to, baking, crafts. We'll see how it goes.

I was trying to figure out how to put up a "Thankful Tree" this year. It's a project we've done in the past, for several years now. It's just a paper tree on the wall, and each day we write down something we're thankful for on a paper leaf, and add it to the tree. Well, this year, I have a toddler who thinks it is GREAT fun to rip down any posters I have put up. Thanks to the ladies in my Homepreschool and Beyond group, we put it up on the window (why didn't I think of that?) If you look closely, you'll see we have some turkey's in our tree this year! LOL

After watching "Atlantis Squarepantis" (yes, I'm hanging my head in shame...BUT it did inspire them, that has to count for something!), my girls drew up a map and packed a bag and went on their own "expedition" to find Atlantis. Here they are:

The littlest student, has mastered standing up from a sitting position this week. He used to fall, then have to crawl to something he could pull himself up on. No MORE! Now he can stand up from sitting in the middle of the floor. He's growing WAY too fast.

Oh, another story I wanted to share. My youngest daughter (the one on the left in the above photo) has a birthday in a little over a month. She has stopped telling people she is 7. If you currently ask her "How old are you?" Her reply is always the same...."Almost 8."
