Here's what we did this week:
Today we got up early for piano lessons. In fact, we got up so early, that Elise and Bud were still sleeping when we left. :) Millie had a great lesson. Afterwards, we came home for a quick snack and then left to meet up with our playgroup at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts to see the Habsburgs exhibit. It was so amazing! It was so cool to see actual suits of armor, jousting outfits, artwork, sleighs, carriages and clothing from that family. I need to learn more about them, now. After that, the girls and I went to Snuffs Malt Shop for lunch and...you guessed it...malts. :) Fun day!
In the evening, the girls had play practice, so Bud and I snuck away to Stillwater to have dinner together at a little pizza place. We had a loaded baked potato pizza. Mmmmmmm! That was the first time we had been on a date together in months and months.
Today we did school work, ran some errands, and got ready for Friday. Knowing that Friday would be a BIG day, we took it easy most of the day.
The BIG day!! The girls spent the day at their grandmas house. Around 4, Bud went to get them, and took them to their Share the Fun competition through 4-H. It was a looooong competition. They didn't get home until 11 PM! Their play didn't win, but they had a lot of fun practicing together.
I got to go to a homeschool convention! It was so fabulous! Here are some highlights from my experience:
We stayed at a swanky hotel that looked like a castle inside. We each got our own bedroom, that had super comfy beds, and down comforters. Each room had a huge flat screen TV (for a total of 3), and we had a super yummy breakfast in the morning (a make-your-own waffle bar!). It was so fun!
I must say that I discovered a few really great things at the convention that I am madly in love with; Nest of Lydia: A Home Economics Curriculum, Circle C books, and above all, Classical Conversations.
