Week in Review x2 (weeks of 10/12 & 10/19)


Week of 10/12

Monday was a Federal Holiday so hubby was home, which typically means no school.  Wish we could have done something fun, but someone had to stay at the house and wait for BGE to come and hook up our electrical redo we had done (remember the drama with the electrician crossing a wire and frying our garage door opener, amongst other things??)  Thank goodness, that whole mess is over!  I went grocery shopping at Costco though and hubby took the kids to MMA.  We also carved pumpkins! I decided to start the Whole 30 diet as well.  I have been planning and researching it for a month (or more) and was going to start on the 15th… decided to jump right in!  But, I fell into normal routine and took my gummy vitamins before bed (they have sugar so are a NO for the Whole 30)…. do day one started Tuesday instead!  I’ll make another post about Whole 30 later, it’s starting to be pretty popular, you can find lots of info on the web about it.  I’ve been Instagramming my meals each day, because ideas from others has been very helpful in my journey.

Tuesday my car was in the shop all day :/  So we were stranded.

Wednesday we finally got the electrical on our solar panels hooked up, and the kids had MMA

Thursday we headed down to co-op for ‘school pictures’.  A local homeschool mom/photographer does school picture style shots for a very reasonable fee.  She’s great! 

Friday was swimming and Saturday was Soccer, Soccer and more Soccer!  (Is the season over yet??)

Week of 10/19

Monday my mom came up to watch the kids while I attended a class at Fountain Rock Nature Center about the DNR curriculum called Growing up Wild.  I plan to teach it at co-op next semester.  It was nice to have a quiet, grown up day and feel like I was back in school again! She took them to MMA as well.  She also treated them to Burger King…isn’t that what Grandma’s are for? It was super cold today too, I had to scrap frost of my windshield before I went to class.  BRRRR!


Tuesday one week on the Whole 30 and it’s going very well!  The day didn’t get off to a good start.  I was woken up middle of the night b/c one kid peed the bed (though the bed seemed perfectly dry to me, his clothes were wet, not sure what happened).  Then K woke up really early… I am NOT a morning person.  I got up to spilled cereal (with milk) all over the kitchen floor and then C came in from outside crying b/c something killed his favorite chicken.  School basically went out the window!  We did some computer school, reading, and watched a film set in the timeframe we are learning about in History.  K had her 2 year old photo shoot.  I arranged it with the same lady that did her one year old one, at a local farm.  Chica was not very cooperative, so we will see how they turned out.  She just kept making weird faces and wouldn’t smile or look at the camera! Cub scouts for the oldest, and Z tagged along.  K and c and I stayed home and played games! Big N Little is a favorite of c’s.

Wednesday I was hostess at Tips for Homeschooling Moms Facebook page!  We had a pretty decent school day, aside from K getting into EVERYTHING, some days that girls makes me crazy!  My allergies are killing me, or I have a cold…not sure which, but it’s definitely messing with me and making me feel miserable!  We had MMA today, then came home to decorate some small pumpkins I got at the farm for $1 each.  We have a pumpkin decorating contest at co-op. The Soccer practice…it was a beautiful day both Tuesday and Wednesday, in the 70s!  BiPolar Maryland weather!

Thursday is co-op and we stayed for the Planetarium, so it was a LONG day! I left in the evening to head to my Mom’s for a girl’s weekend at Time Out for Women in Richmond!

So…. I can’t attest to the rest of the week.  Hubby is flying solo F-Sa!!

Kid’s have their Primary Program on Sunday, can’t miss that…so I’m heading home Saturday night!
