As I look back on last week, I have to wonder if this was our last week of outdoor play without coats.
Here's what we did this week:
The girls did geography today! They watched a few videos about the continents and oceans, and made their geography binders. What's a geography binder, you ask? It's a 3 ring binder with one tab per continent, plus another for the USA. The girls will put their projects that pertain to each continent in the binder, and in the end will have a nice portfolio of their work. Next time they have geography, they'll start doing really fun projects. I'm super excited!
Playgroup day! We met our friends at the apple orchard! It was so nice. The weather was great, the company was great, and the apple cider donuts were really great ;) We went directly from there to Millie's piano lesson. She's making good progress on her piece.
Elise had swimming in the morning. After lessons, the pool has open swim, so we met friends there for a couple hours of "free swim." I think we'll continue this trend for the duration of Elise's lessons. Next time, I'm bringing a swimming suit though! The water slide was calling my name. :) When we got home, I fed the hungry swimmers, and then took a 3 hour nap. THREE HOURS!! It felt great!
Another cold and rainy day :( We stayed in and did our school work as planned. Afterwards, the girls played board games for hours. When did Operation get so annoying? Holy cow. That might have to go into the Goodwill pile.
So, that's the end of our week. It was nice, relaxing, and we went from beautiful to winterish. I'll take it! But, please, I'd like a few more warm days. I'm not ready to settle into winter yet!
