We worked on our multiplication tables again. We are still committing those to memory and working hard to figure them out. He has the concept and is catching on great. I never thought he was really a flash card kind of kid, but he is. He loves to do those so that is helping him to learn the tables.
We are reading aloud the first in the Shark Wars series. He's loving it and I'm kind of getting into it as well. We have book two waiting on us here from the library so we need to finish this one up and move on to the next one. What are you guys currently reading?
We had some amazingly wonderful weather this week. It's been in the 50's when we get up and quite windy in the afternoon so it's still nice to hang out. So that's what we did. We busted out the sidewalk chalk.
He is becoming quite a good little artist. He soooo takes that after daddy. Not me in any way, shape, form or fashion.
We hit the swings. I love to swing. Always have and I'm still waiting for my swing my hubby's going to build me here at the house. It's so relaxing and refreshing.
We sat pondering our thoughts. Ok, maybe he was just sitting that way because I said hey! Let me take your picture on that bench :). It can't always be spontaneous, right?
And I brought out my sewing machine. I realized last weekend how much I'm in need of a hobby of some sort. I mean seriously. I don't have an outlet to put my spare time into or to relax with. I read but don't always have a good book around. I haven't really gotten into scrapbooking but the ladies at my church are encouraging me to. I need something that I can do to burn off stress, steam and just enjoy myself with. So I'm considering sewing projects. My mom is a quilter so this excites her to no end ;-) So we shall see. For now I'm sewing up these cute little bean bags for the trunk or treat I'm heading up at my church.
Do you have a Mom hobby you can let yourself go with? What do you like to do for relaxation and destressifying (not sure if that's a word but it is today.)?
