A Huge Accomplishment ~ Dear husband worked two weekends in a row to get our crawl space insulated. He laid plastic over the dirt on the "floor" and then insulated the "ceiling" of the crawl space. Our floors are so much warmer now and there is no longer a breeze coming from the cracks in the floor. I am so proud of him. The space was tight and dark. I couldn't even see him sometimes even with his head lamp on.
A Quick Visit from Grandpa ~ My father stopped by on his way to Florida. It is always fun to see him. We had a lovely one day visit with him. We went to an indoor recreation place and played laser tag and miniature golf. Little Red Riding Hood especially liked cooking with Grandpa.
Acts of Kindness ~ We only managed three acts of kindness this week. One day they attempted to smile and greet everyone they met. That was really hard for my shy Tom Sawyer. Another day they gave a surprise gift of a candy bar to their older brother. Lastly, they left a stuffed animal for an unsuspecting child at a playground that is located in a poor neighborhood.
Homeschooling ~ We did lots of workbook pages again this week. The kids read books and did math, but we never made it to any of our science experiments. We seem to be having trouble getting back on schedule with our two unit studies. I think we will only get our Beyond FIAR unit study on Neil Armstrong completed during this five week period. The kids enjoyed cooking and art the most this week. For cooking they made Dilly Bread and Boston pork shoulder in the crockpot. They are really improving in their cooking skills.
Grandma taught art to us this week. She did a lovely presentation on Andy Warhol, complete with this video of him eating a hamburger. He was the first to use media in the way we now use social media. We then designed labels for our own cans of food. It was lots of fun.
On the Blog ~ This week I posted my list of 100 books to read in middle school. I would love to hear your additions. You can click here to see it.
I am joining collage Friday.
