In my life this week ... I've been back in Oklahoma this week to pack up for our move. I spent every evening running errands. Brynne's birthday was Wednesday, so we spent the whole day celebrating her. We got the moving truck last night and started loading it up at 1:00 today (after Brynne's bowling birthday party), finishing at about 10:00 p.m. I am now in bed wearing a pair of sweats and my husband's t-shirt because everything else, including pj's, are packed.
In our homeschool this week ... Monday afternoon I declared that we would NOT be doing any school until next week. Really, we can only do so much.
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share ... When "my yearly schedule plan" doesn't work out already in the first couple of weeks of school, I just need to adjust it and move on. We can take a long Christmas break next year.
I am inspired by ... the joy of 7 year olds bowling.
My favorite thing this week was ... Celebrating Brynne's birthday. She was just so excited all week!
People we are seeing/Places we are going ... This week we tried to see as many friends as possible. We won't be seeing them for a while. We also took our last trip to Big Splash, to Cici's Pizza, to the bowling alley, and on the hill that always gets Brynne's tummy when we drive over it.
What's working/not working for us ... Obviously doing school work in the midst of a move does not work. Silly me.
I'm cooking ... Not a thing. This week, the kids and I will be eating easy stuff that we are bringing from Oklahoma so that we can put off our first big trip to the grocery store until after our next payday. (We might have to splurge on a trip to the Dairy Queen, though.)
I'm grateful for ... Family.
