Weekly Wrap up!

I just want to start this weekly wrap up by saying we have had the soggiest spring that I can remember in recent years. Due to that and the fact we are kinda on break the kids have spent far to much time indoor, and in front of the TV. Here is a break down of our week:
Monday: I started the day out with a run in with the kids over cleaning their room, because of that I decided it was time for a media fast. Also I needed to get back to telling the kids once and expecting a response the first time. Once we got through that the day went well actually. Monday was actually a decent day weather wise. The kids spent a bunch of time playing outdoors. The Cicadas were out and we found one that Buster attempted to catch. After that failed I told the kids to pick a flower they wanted to draw. I think they did an excellent job. Other than that Buster read from Owl at Home to me, and the kids played with Cuisenaire rods while I read Jungle book.

Tuesday: Buster woke me up by reading the rest of Owl at Home to me in bed, since he couldn't watch TV. We spent quite a bit of time outdoors between raindrops, and in raindrops. We also did some fun math together using the new dry erase board I bought. I read some more Jungle Book, and the kids took turns reading. Tuesday evening the kids started swimming, which means we all had to spend about 2hrs at the YMCA.

Wednesday: My sister and her kids came over to play. Buster has been trying to catch snakes all week, and he had to show his cousins their hiding spots.
Thursday: We had another great math session. The kids continued to play outside, and with all their army toys. I found Sweetpea outside chasing Buster around with a greater than less than sign trying to eat him. Gotta love MEP. Buster finally caught a Cicada and got to look closer at it. Once again we had swimming. Sweatpea's class is first, and she swam the width of the pool. Between classes we went to the park for a bit. Then came back for Buster's lessons. Daddy and Buster almost finished Zoology 3. I'm told they will be done tonight.

Friday: Well so far nothing much except playing :)

I love seeing the book covers in your side bar. I recognized so many as ones we have used. I like the idea of "weekly Wrap up!". Like SisterTipster said, I too am looking forward to a GREAT Crew year!

LOL about the time sucked up by swim lessons. I'm feeling pretty overwhelmed with those myself right now.

And I love the books in your sidebar. I recognize most of them. I have to get my younger ones reading some of these too.

Your weekly wrap ups sounds like a good idea. Maybe I'll try that too, sometime soon.
