This week was a bit of a blur... I haven't been feeling myself at all this week (feeling a little under the weather). But with that said, I did get some things accomplished this week after all.
Monday we visited with some friends. We called this day "Social Day". What an adventure this day was. I was driving down the highway heading to our friend's house and my battery light came on. I called Greg and he said to return home right away. Jake was in tears because he wanted to visit with his friend. Well... Mr. Timmy had the smart idea (he later said he couldn't believe the parents didn't think of it... Ok 1 up on us LOL ), of having them come to our house instead. That worked for them and we had a wonderful time visiting and are looking forward to the next time.
Friday, we took Jessica and Holly to see Romeo and Juliette ballet at the Pacific Northwest Ballet. Another big treat of the night was eating dinner at the Metropolitan Grill (if you live in the Seattle area, this is a must go to restaurant) before we went to the ballet. And as a bonus, we were surprised with dinner guests, Uncle Jerry and Aunt Natalie.
Now to the fun school things:
We worked on our vocabulary words, read about the people of Russia, began learning about the Mongols, read a Russia Folk Tale, and read a story about a Christian family that lived during Soviet Union.
Jake and Holly created a masterpiece in the Henri Matisse fashion and Timmy did a composition masterpiece, where he also had to mix his own colors. Timmy found this project to be a little difficult. So this art work is really a Timmy & Mom project. Jessica's Latin class was cancelled, so she was able to join us for art class this day.
We did get other regular work done, but not a whole weeks worth. There is always next week to catch up on bookwork.
