Well, I was going to do this with some really cute little photo collages like my friend Mary does. After six (yes SIX) crashes on my iPad I gave up. Single photos only again this week.
We had awards day for the middle school this week. (oops, no picture) I think fully half of the school, including my boys, made High Honor Roll. Certainly makes you wonder about grade inflation, doesn't it?
J played lacrosse this week. No picture here, either, sorry. Now that he is in the U13 league I am just blown away at how big some of those boys are. Practically men. J is a long way from that, and a long way from full-grown aggression on the field, too. This has been a tough season for all of us.
I was actually sick for a bunch of the week, coming down with a nasty stomach bug right after the awards ceremony on Tuesday and really being unable to move until late in the day on Thursday. All of our Roman road/gladiator projects got put on hold. D and I had started Harry Potter as a read-aloud. By Tuesday morning she was reading to me as I struggled to stay awake with her on the couch. Sick mamas make for bad homeschool weeks, that is for sure. I hate that we lost time right as we're coming to the end of the year.
I did make it out of bed to get my hair done on Thursday. I schedule those appointments a year in advance--no way am I missing that! Wendy said she cut six inches off the back. It definitely feels shorter. It also feels less fried, which was why I needed some length taken off to begin with.
Our memory verse this week was:
This is the message that we have heard from Him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all.--1 John 1:5
