A few more pages for my minibook from earlier this month. I'm behind, but slowly making progress. Slowly. And using lots & lots of old alpha stickers & rub-ons!
Ah the joys of summer homework. And of all the things it takes to get the kids to actually do it. Thomas was really good about his summer math packet. Wish I could say the same for Rachel's summer reading.
So on Saturday we found ourselves at the mall. In the Lego shop. And, as usual, the kids wanted toys. I decided to make a bargain with them. They could pick out a Lego (Hero Factory is their new thing) and I'd buy it. However, they could not even open the box until their summer work was done.
And, going along with that.....
The day before school. Things have to be finished. And, although we thought it would be quick & simple (at least for Thomas) it took literally all morning long. Rachel was another story altogether.... tantrums & crying - all over two pieces of paper.
Friday night - we lost power thanks to a tropical storm. Luckily we had just gotten take out for dinner! After that - game night! We had a fun, racous game of Life. I can't believe my husband never played that game before.
And - finally - the rain was done and the sun came out. It'd been raining since Sunday. And if it wasn't raining then it was dark & overcast.
