Weekly Wrapup

FIELD TRIP!!!!    Field trips are probably at the top of my Favorite Things list.  Field trips when dad can go along are even better!

IMG_0024 We had a blast hanging out together at the Pittsburgh Children’s Museum.  The Children’s Museum is absolutely one of my favorite places, it is so full of creativity.  On exhibit right now is Tapescape, miles of packing tape transformed into an interactive play space.

I’m so excited, because I got a new computer this week.  My first MacBook!  I’m still trying to find my way around things like photo apps.  If anybody has recommendations let me know (particularly a photo app that does collages and watermarks).  I love the way my calendar syncs across all my devices, I feel so productive!

Over the weekend the boys  did Yard Charge with the Cub Scouts.  They spent the morning raking leaves.  I had a couple of wonderful hours all by myself.  It would be fun to say I went to the coffee shop or had a manicure, but I’m not cool like that.  I stayed home, purged a few paper piles, cleaned the kitchen, and enjoyed the quiet.  It was great!


We had the first “real” snow at our house this week.  We did some lessons but also had time for throwing snowballs, sipping cocoa, making Minecraft creations and baking cookies.

This week I reviewed our reading list for the year.  Check out some of our favorite read alouds.   Taking time to laugh through a good book together is such a joy!

What are some of your favorite books to read together?

Hope you are having a wonderful week!
