|Finally passed out after a long night |
of allergy symptoms.
Wait, I'm focusing on what we didn't do for those two weeks. Let me show you what our days looked like.
Meanwhile at home the living room was taken over by GeoTrax.
|This is how it looked pretty much all week.|
Robotson and I got some personal reading done. He finished the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. I read The Hot Zone by Richard Preston. It was terrifying.
Funny Girl and I practiced reading Hop on Pop together. She had the idea to use the LeapFrog Word Builder to help her remember the letter sounds and words from the book.
|Dimples and I put together puzzles.|
|We made homemade pizzas from scratch.|
There were some severe storms that knocked out our power for several hours and the Internet for a day. We even had to spend some time in the "tornado closet" under the stairs. The girls slept through the entire thing - from me moving them into the closet, to putting them back in bed. Robotson had his iPod to keep him occupied.
Even though I am supposed to dislike the pollen as much as my son (according to him), I can't help but marvel at how beautiful it looks on flowers. These are all from Mo's garden by the way.
That brings us to this week where we are still working on getting back to bed on time and not begging to watch t.v. all day. Robotson and I started reading The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey. He is begging me to find him some more books like Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I've got a few reserved from the library. One is called Star Jumper: Journal of a Cardboard Genius. Other than lots of reading with the kids it's been a low-key week. Since the flooring is done in the spare room I've been painting the floorboards. I still have to buy, paint, and install the quarter round. Then see about getting all of our Disney lithographs framed. We also need new closet doors and an organizer. It's the project that never ends.
