Plans for the week ahead

This week we are doing Cells & DNA during co-op class. It is going to be so fun!! I lead a Breastfeeding Support Group and it meets this Tuesday after Ice Skating. Out topic this week is a Breastfeeding Jeopardy Game I made a few years ago when I worked for WIC. The rest of the week is Free & Clear. Yahoo!! Hoping to get all the schoolwork finished up early and work on some sewing for Christmas.

Thinking about

Trying to finish up all my Christmas stuff up by the first week in Christmas so I can just enjoy the month of December. This week is sewing projects. I will be getting the projects organized, cut, and pinned together. This most likely will not be done this week but might as well try.

Out of doors

This week we will finish stacking wood and splitting what we have. Later this week we will be getting some more wood to cut down and split. Busy week outside.

In the kitchen

I would like to make a decorate a pile of cakes this week. Why? I just love to decorate them. Hoping to find families to eat them 🙂 My youngest daughter turned 5 this weekend. I made her a Hello Kitty birthday cake and remembered how much I love it.

Plans for the week ahead

Can’t believe it actually looks like a slow week this week. We only have Co-op classes today, Ice Skating tomorrow, and Bible study Wednesday. We have the November packets of schoolwork to finish this week. The main focus this week is making a video for a contest the kids found.

This weekend they started with talking about all the movies they wanted to make. I finally said to them that they just needed to do it! I told them they could have a good chunk of time this week to work on one if they could find a contest to enter. There would have been 4 movies being worked on if they didn’t have a main goal 🙂 So, they found one and are having a planning session today and start filming tomorrow afternoon.

Thinking about

I was able to finish up neatening up the hallway upstairs. I still need to organizer it. I have containers to spray paint to match each other. I bought the spray paint and have the containers (in varying colors). The containers will go below each child coat and snow pants. The containers are to hold that particular child’s ice skates, hats, gloves, and helmet for skating. Trying to cut down on the number of hats, gloves, and mittens around the house and get the hallway organized.

Out of doors

Brrr, it has been so chilly overnight. Tomorrow looks like a perfect afternoon to get outside and do some filming 🙂

In the kitchen

Hmmm, what to do, what to do… We have so much time home this week. Trying to use the oven and get the house warmed up on these chilly days. Lot’s of cookies being made. Thinking we should change our focus to muffins and quick breads to have in the mornings for breakfast. Love to make these in bulk with our commercial size muffin trays that hold 2 1/2 dozen muffins. That should kill two birds: warm up the house and have breakfast all set.

This weekend we had a great time just hanging out with some friends after church. Here is a  cute picture of both of our family’s youngest children.

Plans for the week ahead

Busy week this week with Respiratory System Co-op class today, soccer Tuesday, and dentist appointment on Wednesday. Plans are for school each morning except today cuz of classes and working outside each afternoon except Tuesday cuz of soccer. We should be able to get our workbooks all done on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and then work on Easy Peasy computer school Thursday and Friday. Passing out the monthly papers on Wednesday also. Finishing up the garden this week and hopefully do the last mowing of the fields this week.

Thinking about

Scheduling and how to fit it all in. Trying to organize the upstairs fka (formally known as) the computer room. It is now just called the “stupid room” not sure why but it will eventually be an organized craft and activity room.

Out of doors

Lots of project to work on outside: bulkhead, gardening, mowing, fencing in birds, and planting bulbs.

In the kitchen

Cleaned out the garden this week and ended up with lots of cherry tomatoes to snack on with lunches. We did our monthly shopping at Aldi’s for meat and now our freezer is full.

We had a wonderful time at the Children’s Science Museum this week. This museum is one of our favorite places. Here is Pilot’s creation using massive building materials. It is a huge marble factory.
