Here’s some snapshots of our week.
With some from last Friday too, just because I’m behind like that.
Took the kids shopping to use their Christmas money and Target gift cards from sweet far-away family. They had so much fun picking stuff out. And I’m pretty sure these are the only things they’ve played with all week.
We went over to our friends’ house last Friday (can that be my excuse for no post?),
where we got to enjoy a group homeschool lesson about owls and other birds of prey.
(remember it’s not spelled the same as “pray” – as noted on the board).
The kids loved it. Notice all the boys sitting still and quiet – absolutely transfixed.
The Owl Lady, as we affectionately called her, brought three live birds with her
(who seemed to be just as interested in the kids as they were with them).
By the way, the two boys with the hats belong to me (any guesses on which baseball team we root for?)
Giants and Dodgers are forbidden words in this house.
Afterwards, all the kids got to decorate owl cupcakes. So creative. So not my idea.
I leave that to my amazing party-planning-food-genius friends.
I’ll just be over here in the corner with my paper and pens.
Speaking of which … here’s another page from my contribution for The Sketchbook Project.
One down. Only a hundred more to go?
3 out of 4 kids are playing basketball for the first time this year. They love it.
And I love that they pray together before their games.
This is what our Saturday will be filled with. Basketball and prayer.
How about yours? Any exciting weekend plans?
