What we are up to this week.....

We have a few projects to finish up.  Joey finished his first 4H project last week.  He has the meeting with his advisor on Tuesday.  I think it turned out wonderful, no matter how it's judged!  And considering the roller coaster he's been on with meds the last couple months....he did Great!  Lydia is finishing up Girl Scout projects for our State Fair.  We have 2 of 4 finished...almost.  I need to run the one to Staples and have it fully laminated for protection. 

Joey will have guitar lessons and Lydia will have violin.  Lydia and I will be going to the Humane Society to volunteer this week again.  Maybe our friend Phoebe will get to come again too.  We hope to visit friends at the Park on Thursday.  And Lydia has a Cloverbud Swim Party on Monday night.  She's pretty excited.

Mixed into all of that...yep we have lessons.

History-Finish up Jamestown.  We are going to read a story on Pocahontas and also John Smith (The kids were shocked that the Disney movie was so was quite funny.)  The are going to build a model of Jamestown with Duplos and Lincoln Logs and use their figure we got from Amazon.  There is a Jamestown Toob and Powhatan toob.  The girls really like them.
