Week in Review

Yay it's Friday! Whew! I have just spent some time working on my blog because I made a huge uh-oh. Came on the blog to write this post and found that my background was gone. Long story short, I tried fixing it and ended up having to redo all my widgets and background and ahhh!!!

Deep Breath.... So. Now I'll get to our week in review ;).

Last weekend we did get a new fire pit for our yard. This is something we have been wanting to do for awhile. We roasted hot dogs and made some smores last Sunday night as an end to a relaxing family weekend.

We made unique smores this time. Instead of melting chocolate we used some of the Reese's Spreads we had to review. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Best Smores ever! Okay, if you like peanut butter and chocolate they are :)

We had some beautiful weather this week and the clouds were truly amazing! It looked as if God took a paintbrush to the sky. Over look the huge tire sign in my yard. :) Hubby's project he's working on....

Our school week was pretty normal for us. We are working on catching up on some of our LA that we are behind on. Staying pretty much on top of everything else.

We had the last of our January science class this week. He was all talk after that discussing the animals they cared for and what experiences they had. Boo Bear was the water boy for the terrariums they visited.

We had a park day with a newer homeschool group where we live. It was a nice day to get out and he seemed to make friends.

Last week I also added some home ec to Boo Bear's schedule. He is asking to cook and I want him to learn as much as possible. It's a skill needed for boys and girls alike so I want him to be comfortable in the kitchen.

We made some cupcakes and he also offered to do the dishes.

We used our new decorating kit too which I'll share a review on this week. He did really well with the cooking and is learning to read the recipe and follow directions. They turned out really cute !

Boo Bear received a Solar System kit for Christmas so we also put that together this week. He has known his planets for awhile but it's always fun to work on it in a new way to review and enjoy it again. 

That's about how our week went. We have made some great progress and will finish up our Math chapter today with our final test on it. I'm looking for online programs for math, history and maybe science. He loves working online so I'd love to hear what programs you have fallen in love with!

How was your week?


  1. Looks like a very fun week!

    My daughter is just starting to enjoy baking too - now to teach her to follow the instructions... ;-)

    1. That's so much fun! Cooking in the kitchen with the kiddos. I am hoping he keeps the desire to learn :)

  2. Love all the learning going on. Real life learning is my favorite. Enjoy the weekend. And sorry about the blog 8(

    1. Thanks Melissa! This week was lots of fun so we will see how this week goes ;)

  3. Oh my goodness. Blog problems are no fun! I'm glad you sorted it out. And I am in awe of your campfire. I can't wait for summer to get here!!

    1. I am loving the campfire here too. So glad we have some cool weather to enjoy it. I about cried when everything disappeared. :) Sure glad I got it figured out.

  4. Looks like a productive week. Alway glad to see boys learning to cook as it is an important skill, I am in the midst of it myself:) I think you did a great job getting your blog back in shape


I love to hear from you!
