We had a great (and busy) week.
Monday we went to a friend's house in the morning. That was also the day that Matthew got his cast. As a follow up, here is what he was doing while I posted about his arm:
We also worked on our school. Here are our cave drawings: (they actually included things they learned about nomads and early farmers, like their irrigation systems and living in tents)
Tuesday was regular shopping day for me. Peter went with so he could stock up on his South Beach diet food. He has already started loosing weight! We also had a hotdog picnic at church for the end of cub scouts until next fall.
Wednesday we had a playgroup at our house (actually our beach) all day. Ryan was proud of the large, alive crab he found:
Thursday was pretty laid back. We played outside some more and worked on jobs. We did go out to eat for dinner.
I seem to remember a whole post about Friday, but here are some more pictures:
Saturday was spent resting after such a week, changing around my blog and cleaning up the house for Sunday. Poor Peter worked a 17 hour shift because they couldn't fill that day and he had to take up the slack.
Sunday we went to church (with a very tired mom and dad). Afterwards we played Settler's of Catan. The game is getting really long now that the kids are getting as many points as the grownups (by the way I won, Peter won last week, but Elise was a really close 2nd both times). Since the game lasted from 5:30 to 9:30, we sent the kids directly to bed and then played wii mariocart with my sister and brother-in-law in Washington. Turns out we are more competitive when we use the remote and nunchucks instead of the wii wheel!
And here we are at Monday again. With another very busy week to follow (I'll keep you posted!)
