Weekly Review - The One With Great Weather and A Homemade Car...

It's finally Friday! Wahoo! Is it just me or has this week been kind of long? It's been a crazy wild up and down week but that's okay. ;-) God has taught me some lessons this week that maybe I'll share in another post. But for now, I'm going to share what awesomeness we did in school and out of school this week.

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.

He likes to get up and walk around while we are quizzing on these. I love that he can do that. Try that in a public school and you get in trouble for being disruptive ;). Here it's just his way of his mind working with his body.

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?

He had his last day of this months science class yesterday. He loved this one! It was Simple Machines and yesterday he came home with a car they made. It was constructed out of lids from bottles, straws, cereal box and a balloon. You blow up the balloon, put the car down and it goes on it's own. It's pretty neat!

Next month is weather so I'm excited to see what they will be doing.

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 walked the trail at the park where his science class was. They have some really neat looking sculptures.

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.)?


  1. My mom hobby? that would be blogging..... and occasionally I enjoy cross stitch and knitting.

    Thanks so much for linking with Collage Friday!

    1. I love blogging too :) I have done cross stitching too and it's fun when I remember it LOL. Thanks for hosting and hope you have a great week!

  2. What a great week for outside exploration! Nice pics and I need to find a hobby too. Lol

    1. Thanks Melissa! It was quite awesome as we only get a few days here and there that are true fall weather ;)

  3. A mom hobby ...does singing all over the house count? I have been thinking of taking up a craft as well. I would really like to learn to sew.
    Blessings, Dawn
