So I am having a rough time keeping up. I am trying to spring clean the house. Several trips to Goodwill later, and still barely making a dent. I also was helping the girls get ready for their Pinewood Derby, two of the 4 kids had presentations to do at 4H, and 3 of the 4 had presentations at a Living History Wax Museum Event......ahhh!!!
I wasn't feeling well last week, allergies acting up. And then Caty's allergies turned into bronchitis. Brayden's allergies are off the charts. Lydia and Joey's are evening acting up this year. They haven't had allergy problems for a couple years. I upped their zinc just to play safe, and started allergy meds. We haven't had huge success with essential oils and allergies for the kids. Their mind-set says, "Hey, I'm impatient and I can't have itchy eyes or a scratchy throat. I need this to stop now."
Anyway, you can see how busy I was because I am combining two weeks of re-caps. So part of these are while we were in DC.
Visiting Georgetown Cupcakes.
While in DC, we had a family game night. Ordered in Chinese and played Mario Kart.
Here is the Frozen Wonder
Joey went as Stan Lee.
Caty was Amelia Earhart.
Lydia was Jane Goodall. She needs to find another animal person for next time. She has done her twice now. Although her 4H Zoology project is about Jane Goodall this week, so I need a new argument. My daughter is going to end up living in a jungle...lol.
We also made our first trip to the local ice cream shop for this season. Joe took two kids to see Avengers. But Caty and Brayden didn't want to go, so we went and cleaned out the van and got them ice cream.
Took the girls out to a bunch of local garage sales on Friday morning. Found a prep table for my kitchen for $25.00, a corn-hole toss game for $5.00 and this telescope for $15.00. Joey was super excited and couldn't wait to get it out that night.
Week 47 we had schoolwork, Week 48 was more of a vacation. We start back to school this week. I have lessons and projects all laid out. I am excited to get back to school a little bit. I have tons of work to finish for Minecraft school. But I figure...I will survive :)
Hope everyone has a wonderful week. See you at the end of Week 49. I can't believe this school year is almost over!
