Girl Scouts, DIY Club, and Nature Seekers Club

It was club week, it seems!  We had a lot going on.  By the time Friday came around, it was so nice so stay home and get some serious work done.

Here's the fun we had this week:


We started off the week at home.  The girls did their 3 R's in the morning, and played in the afternoon.  We were supposed to do geography, but I totally fell off the geography bandwagon.  In fact, we're so behind, that I had to rework our schedule.  Stay tuned.  I'm putting together a very basic state study that can be completed in 5 days or less. ;)


We started out the day doing Girl Scouts!  It was so much fun :)  It's crazy how much we can get done in 1 hour!  Playgroup was cancelled in the afternoon, so the kids worked on their DIY projects until it was time to go to piano.  It was a super fun, relaxed day.

Today was our second DIY club meet up!  We met at the Mall of America for a scavenger hunt.  Most of the group was sick, so it ended up being just my girls and one other friend.  They had a blast, and ended up completing the scavenger hunt with only 1 minute to spare.  We wrapped up the meeting with lunch at the Rainforest Cafe.  When we got home, I took a loooooong nap, and the kids worked on DIY projects.


In the morning, Elise did her school work, while Millie worked on NaNoWriMo. I am pretty sure she's really behind in her word count (so am I!!).  This year might be an incomplete NaNoWriMo year.  Sad!  Elise is doing a drawing challenge instead of NaNoWriMo, since she's too young.  She loves it! In the afternoon we met up with friends at Fort Snelling park for our Nature Seekers Club.  The kids learned about and looked for decomposers and other bugs.  The class ended when one of the friends fell and broke her arm :(

Nothin' could be finer than swingin' from a viner! ;)


At home day!  Phew!  The girls both got all their school work done, and did some serious work on their DIY projects.  It was so nice to stay home, and get so much accomplished.  In the evening, we went to the 4-H annual banquet.  It was fun!  After the meeting portion of banquet, Millie and her friend did a project talk about a rocket they made in Rockets To The Rescue class.  Good times.

This weekend brings Sunday School, a STEM workshop through 4-H, and GIRLS NIGHT for me!!  Woo hoo!!
