What we are up to this week....


We have a lot of club events this week, and our bi-weekly art class.  Actually we have 3 clubs and art class tomorrow.  A field trip to the Art Museum on Tuesday morning.  Joey and Lydia start back to 4H this week.  Actually Lydia is still a Cloverbud for another two years....shhhhhh....don't tell her.  She's in denial that she can't show a project yet.  So she is collecting her art projects to enter in the fair anyway.  Of course we have the regular dance/gymnastics classes.  Our Special Olympics Homecoming is this Friday, and Lydia is going to a Scrapbooking Party that a friend of ours is hosting this upcoming weekend.

Some where we have to do schoolwork....

  1. WOW I am always amazed the variety you have going on in your house with the 4 kids. I only have two and they do most of the same types of things to make it easier for me, although just recently I think I need to let my daughter do more on her own but still trying to figure out how:(
