Week 40 in Review

week

Last Weekend:  My mom and I had a girls getaway, we do it about every 6mos, it’s a scrapbooking weekend at a nearby camp.  It’s so fun and pretty inexpensive!  I got a lot accomplished, and now have to start getting more organized for my next trip in November!

Most of my designs and paper are from Close to my Heart!

I’m so far behind, so it was nice to get caught up, a little bit….  I still have so far to go! The break was nice too!  I wish it was more than just 2 days….I feel like I need a week (at least!).  Maybe I’ll have to plan something longer for just Mom and I.

Monday – Back to the grind, I had a hard time transitioning back.  We took this week pretty easy.  I did make workboxes for C, but Z just did his minimal, and c well, he was excited to get a new Animal Trackers….I’ll get him some Lion themed boxes next week.

Tuesday – another quiet day at home.  I’m actually liking that all our school year stuff ended, I can relax (for a bit anyways, swim team starts up soon). 

Wednesday – C got up and knocked out majority of his schoolwork computer and workboxes before I even got up!The older two got to do a Homeschool class at the library, we have missed them most of the year b/c it overlapped with MMA.  The library has a new kitchen, the littles loved it!  We also had our first chick hatch.  We got 5 total out of 11 (one cracked in the shipping, and 6 didn’t hatch), we had much better success last time we did it.  Bummer.

Thursday – we met a friend for lunch at Pizza Hut to use up the last of our Book Its for the year!  The last chick (#5) had to be helped out of his shell, but is doing well.

Friday – Hubby stayed home with the littles and the two bigs and I went on a field trip to see the play Diary of Anne Frank.  I think it was a bit over Zs head, but C enjoyed it.  It was very well done.  They allowed for a Q&A after the play, and several of the other kids there had some good questions. 

Weekend:  I’m headed back to my parents just for the day on Saturday, it’s my future SILs bridal shower, will be just a day trip.  We have a Memorial Day event on Monday to attend.

DON’T MISS THE GIVEAWAY!!

I am cutting back a tad on my blogging….I was starting to be overwhelmed by my own goals (being an over achiever can really suck sometimes). I’ve decided to take a step back.  I may pick things back up in the future, or I may keep it low for a bit.  I have decided exactly what will stay and what will go.  But I will have a min of one post a week, plus reviews.  I am also aware that the FHE booklet I made is down to the last week…I will have June up very soon, and the other months will follow!  Don’t worry!

People always ask “how do you do it all??!!”  I’ve said many times, “I don’t” and lately I’ve really had to re-evaluate and set new priorities!

Follow me on Facebook or Twitter to see the great deals I occasionally post.  This week has been some great ones from the Homeschool Buyer’s Co-op!
