A Peek at Our Weekend ~ The One With Lots of Kid Activities



What was in the kitchen ...

Saturday dinners tend to exist of Italian meals with a salad and breadsticks these days. This week it was spaghetti. Then tonight we had to head out of town for a bit so we grabbed McDonald's. We haven't done that in a long time!


An activity we did away from home ...

We have lived here for a full year and haven't been to a particular nearby town at all, until this weekend. Different members of our family were there twice in two days! Brynne had a volleyball tournament there on Friday night and Eli's Scout den attended a Mozarkite show and swap meet and mineral dig on Saturday.

Rick and my mom took Brynne to her tournament while I went with Kyndal to a jewelry party she was co-hosting with Collin's mom. I ordered a new silver ring and a cool necklace.

Then today I ran Dawson "to town" so that he could pick up a video game he has been wanting.


What we learned at church ...

This weekend was Serve 2013 for the United Methodist Church. The children from our church went with our pastor and helped lead service at the nursing home where my grandmother resides. My grandma was having a good day so we got to enjoy some time with her.



Things accomplished at home ...

Rick did a great job of getting the yard mowed and trimmed while I vacuumed and cleaned the bathroom. Then I did loads (no pun intended) of laundry.


My favorite moment ...

Watching Eli crack a large stone with a rock hammer, right down the middle, and open it to see beautiful Mozarkite!


Ways we relaxed ...

After dinner on Saturday night, Rick, Kyndal and I watched the Missouri Tigers football game (Go Mizzou!). I sat in the Sitting Room with the sleeping doggies and got caught up on my pictures and blog while sipping some hot green tea. Then today Rick and I watched World War Z, and then watched a couple of DVR'd episodes of Cedar Cove.


Preparations for the week ahead ...

Tonight I worked on lesson plans for the first part of the week. We are only having school Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday because we are leaving for our 9 day trip to Pensacola with my mom! Oh, I am ready for that trip!!

We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
