In my life this week…
It has been a fairly normal week here. I think the weirdest thing this week was my almost 14 year old teaching my almost 7 year old how to make his own coffee.
I also wrote a post this week on a craft that I made for Christmas. It is called quilling and involves rolling paper in a variety of ways. The art form started with nuns making decorations with the trimmings from the edges of gilded books. Anyways I made two TARDISes. (Quilling – TARDIS)
We are reorganizing our basement. Ian needs a regular size bed. Currently he is still on his toddler mattress, wedged into the corner of the loft bed nest. Unfortunately there isn’t enough room for another bed in there. So they are getting the TV room. That means rearranging everything including moving the wall mounted TV. On the good side the kids actually sorted their toys. We are getting rid of two boxes of toys, five bags of garbage and three bins of recycling. We also have an old DVD player and 5 orphaned remotes going to electronic recycling.
In our homeschool this week…
We have been trying to get caught up on math for both Philip and Margaret. Margaret has succeeded. Philip has until Sunday or he starts losing privileges. He should be able to make it.
Portfolios are coming up so there is a push to finish everything off and get ready. I am feeling confident.
We did another of our take it apart Fridays. This week’s item was a telescope that I found at the thrift store for $10. It turned out to not be nearly as exciting as I had hoped. Removing four screw was all it took. Still it worked for Philip doing optics. The kids did play around with the parts, holding them up and seeing what happened when they combined them.
