In other bits of news for the week.
This past week was Princess’ birthday party, which meant the kids happily decorated. Our parties are never “pinterest worthy” for pictures, but they’ve got a lot of heart in them, and a lot of fun. Besides they have so much enthusiasm as they went through the house festooning it in streamers and balloons. 2 whole rolls of streamers, and over 60 balloons. I’d inclue more pictures, but I’ve misplaced my cord to move pictures from my camera, so you’ll have to make do with these pictures.
Oh, and I got a new shipment in from Low Country Eclectic, I ordered a Batman necklace for me (because I saw it was there and HAD to have it), but really because I wanted to get a couple of necklaces for Christmas presents for friends, and they were running a special at the time (she’s got a different one now I believe).
In school work, I had the kids retake their test after they’d learned how to take notes, and the child who hand’t lost his test got 100%. The other two had managed to lose their notebooks and didn’t do as well. But after going through and correcting every bit of their test from the text I think they’ll take me a bit more seriously on that front.
This was the week of earth science projects as we finally got all caught up on our CKE Earth and Space. So we learned about all sorts of water stuff, different rocks, and generally made a serious mess in the kitchen (which rather countered my serious cleaning I had planned for the week).
We did stop for an early Christmas craft, because I’ve been feeling rather Christmasy, and made a pine cone Christmas tree for Froggy’s Best Christmas.
I’m looking forward to getting our tree today and decorating it, and starting the Advent Season.
