The girls love to bake and are always experimenting. They tried their hand at Chocolate Chip Cookie bowls! They turned out great and they were delicious! Good jobs girls!
We had a terrible storm come through Sunday so on Monday, we watched as a tree that had fallen was cut down. The girls remarked that after hearing the tree cracking then coming to an enormous boom as it was cut from the base, they felt really bad for it. They said it was very sad to know that it was now dead and that the cracking as it was falling seemed like it was crying. Our children are very empathetic.
They watched as it was placed into a chipper and made into wood chips.
The day was made a little better when we got our Teaching Textbooks 7 in the mail. The girls got started right away. We school year round and our school year begins in January, so we're not starting at the end of the year like it seems. We skipped through to lesson 21 because they were already up to speed with the topics covered in the early lessons.
Wednesday was a big day! The twins turned ELEVEN! I reminisced and cried a bit but that's typical for me. Come on, I can't be the only mom who cries each time one of her children celebrates a birthday.
We also had our homeschool field day. The girls had a ton of fun!
Thursday, the girls used some of their birthday money to treat me to Starbucks and we went shopping! We got 5 skirts and 6 tops for $60 total! I think we did well!
Friday, we have short days and so here we are finishing up the week! Looking back it was a great one!
Now, your turn! Tell me all the fun you had this week!
