While there our conversation went like this:
She: Hello, can I help you?
Me: Yes, would you come to my house and help me choose my colors? (snicker g'fahh)
She: Actually, I do that!
Me: (Dumbfounded, just standing there...) Okay? Realllly??
I'm thrilled! We have so many walls on this floor that are screaming at me for color, but I really don't know where to start. Living, Family Rooms, School Room, Stairwell, Halls and our Breakfast Room all need to be painted. Teresa is coming over next week and then we'll be painting and painting...
Back to Light School. The boys did their Math and Reading and then I came home (after a hard morning running errands) and took a long nap. It was raining, couldn't be a better day for a nap, right? I'm still tired from long nights of sick kids, I must be 37, this sleep is taking longer to catch up on.
My favorite thing this week was...
Working on our Life of Jesus Timeline. I worked on a timeline for the life of Christ, the boys and I started at his ministry in order to work up to the crucifixion and resurrection by Good Friday. Each day I assign the boys to sketch a picture for an event while I read the stories to them. It's been a fun way to work up to Easter.
Questions/thoughts I have....
Wondering how I'm going to keep these boys occupied over Spring Break, and still wondering how to keep my eldest student challenged over the next months.
Things I'm working on....
rearranging our school stuff, decluttering, decluttering, choosing paint colors, oh! and I have some studying to do too!
Books to go on the to-read list....
(Eli finished his first chapter book this week!)
The boys are finishing up their assigned reading, I'm looking through these lists:
1000 Good Books
Books for Boys & Other Children Who Would Rather Make Forts All Day (if you click on this link it will download a doc with a fantastic list of books)
I'm reading..... Total Truth by Nancy Pearcy (for book group), Shepherding a Child's Heart, & Great Expectations by Dickens. Good, good books.
Something a Little Crazy....
New Fun Idea Here:
It comes from Pinterest, of course. Hoping to promote some reading and writing I picked up some poster board at Winco (.37!) and drew up a fun map for Eli. He's had so much fun, enough fun that his big brothers quickly followed suit and drew up their own maps.
