Outdoor fun ~ We took the first step in transforming our yard into a tween/teen haven this week with the purchase of a new trampoline. The kids are in love with it and spent many hours on it this week.
We will be making some more changes in the coming weeks. I look forward to them having a safe place to exercise.
Field Trips ~ We attended the Lego Club this week. It was Little Red Riding Hood's turn to present her Lego creation. She made a candy land drive thru!
We also went to the nature center this week. All of the animals were snoozing. I guess they are adjusting to the increase in pollen and temperatures too. The kids liked seeing the new playground structures that were added around the park.

Homeschooling ~ Nothing really exciting to report in the homeschool world. We are doing lots of math, language arts and writing. Little Red Riding Hood will be tested next week and Tom Sawyer the week after that. I have ordered Goldilocks's test and she will be tested by her caregiver in the next week or two. The most exciting things we have done in homeschool is watch two Imax movies from Netflix and we are listening to From Norvelt to Nowhere which is the sequel of Dead End in Norvelt. The kids have really enjoyed both audio books. There seems to be a cliff hanger every chapter. Warning: The humor is a bit on the dark side and deals with death.
Counting Blessings ~
- I made it to the chiropractor this week. My back was killing me.
- Our team of professionals continue to be supportive in helping us get the best care for Goldilocks.
- We are so blessed to have a large back yard to provide safe play space for our kids.
- There were less phone calls to make this week!
- I AM SO THANKFUL FOR HOMESCHOOLING AND THE FLEXIBILITY IT ALLOWS.
On the blog this week~ I wrote about the importance of flexibility in homeschooling and encouraging another to carry the torch with Goldilocks's education.
