So, how did our week pan out?
Monday we did 90% of our errand running for the month. It was the third after all and this is when we always do it.
Tuesday we were pleasantly surprised when the girls took it upon themselves to write and illustrate to very short stories! The that night I fell asleep snuggling YCJ with Moragon on the couch for the first time in what felt like forever!
On Wednesday we had Ash Wednesday. So we had coloring sheets, a more in depth lesson for religion, mass, and a lot of discussion about what we should "give up" for Lent. I also started my 40 Bags in 40 Days Challenge with a very quick and simple clean up of my coffee table and part of my kitchen counter. The girls also took it upon themselves to completely redecorate my refrigerator. The campers watched some videos and prayed along with some audios on Holy Heroes for the Lenten Adventures. Then we tore up the "evil twins" we made earlier this winter and pledged to try to never do those "bad" things again.
|I still haven't found a home for my jeans or long sleeved|
shirts yet, however.
We had a lovely Friday at Grandma's house. We helped her clean out their "storage" room (really just a no longer used bedroom) and organize it. We were able to visit for several hours while we were there as well. ECJ (sixth grade) had spent a lot of time reading this week and finished one chapter book only to begin another one! There's one more month of Book IT! and we're right on target! Each camper has managed to get a sticker for their passports to reading every month! We even did a quick stop in the morning to walk on the frozen lake, but I was too busy keeping my balance to snap any pictures.
As for this weekend we're finally going to take down the "porch tree/ valentines tree". Continue with our 40 bags in 40 days. Perhaps even do some items on our Winter Bucket List . We've decided that it is very likely not all of the items will be checked off this time, and that's just fine! Other than that we're simply going to relax and read some more. We might even be able to get in some outside time tomorrow afternoon! We're well rested now and ready to get back to the more serious side of learning.
