One Busy Week!

This has been one of our busiest weeks in a long time!

Monday morning was filled with appointments and we found out Grace will have her braces off the first week in January!
We also had a blast baby-sitting both Reese & Regan in the afternoon.
 Tuesday we had the fall concert for our co-op. Dress rehearsal in the
morning (for me too as I now teach a beginning guitar class) & concert that night.

Wednesday we had our first Christmas school group ~ it was really fun! We talked about advent and drew this picture I found at Art Projects for Kids. We also started on some projects that will be gifts for others.

Thursday was pretty quiet in the morning, but the Christmas formal was that night, so by afternoon there was much primping going on!

Then yesterday we had our second day of Christmas school. The older kids could all make it that day & we read The Legend of the Candy Cane, made cookies, and started another gift  project.
 So on this “Thankful Thursdayish” I am thankful for a fun busy week with lots of friends ~ and looking forward to the quiet days approaching!

Thankful Thursdayish (again)

That’s probably going to be my official title  ~ Thursdayish…. one of my quirks is that no matter how hard I try to be disciplined about a routine, I fail. Sure there are somethings I do consistently, but my selfish side still seems to rise to the top. One little thing to work on each day, right?

 So this week I am thankful for a little break. Last week I was talking to my mom and telling her how I was really feeling spent & rushed & needed a break. It’s not cool that Lucy got chicken pox (except now she will have a natural immunity & I am ever EVER so thankful for that!) but it is cool that we got to rest, read, & stay home for nearly an entire week.  A silver lining!
