This week in Review....


I'm taking part in a bloghop check it out here.

  • In my life this week…
Things have been so crazy! We celebrated Achoo's 3rd birthday!!  He's 3! We hit up the McKenna Museum.  We stayed busy with our activities!! Gator has been working hard on her round-off back handspring.  My goal in the next week or two is to capture it on video and show it to you! AHH, so proud!

  • In our homeschool this week…
Gator has been working hard on reading....anything and everything.  I started doing some sight word recognition with Peanut (and Achoo).  I also printed off some Lalaloopsy Printables for Peanut - she loved them. Found here.

  • Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
We went to the Children's Museum and to the movies to see Monsters University this past week.  We also went to a Fourth of July BBQ and saw some friends from Vegas' office.

  • My favorite thing this week was...
  •  This week Achoo turned 3.  And, I really enjoyed letting him "run" the day.  Everything we did was what he wanted to do...he was so happy.  "Thank You Momma" 




  • My kiddos favorite thing this week was...
  • The kids have had so much fun playing outside this week. Chalk, Strider Bike, Water Table...the list goes on...oh, and I let them play with Play-doh outside so they thought that was FANTASTIC!!!



  • Things I'm working on...
  • The move.  It is honestly --- uh, never ending!  We need to make a list of things that we need to bring with us...figure out our no pack room (a room so that the stuff we need to bring with us doesn't get packed)...oh, the list is just so so so long.  I asked my Dear Friend Melissa to write a post for me about moving and organization (she's not done it yet - cough, cough, cough).

  • I'm cooking...
This week I made my favorite (again)-- Grecian Delight!  (I had extra feta from last week and extra orzo).  Oh, and I made some more cookies, too (for 4th of July!)  We had creamy chicken ziti bake and it made two -- so that's on the menu for next week!  Burgers, Salads, Chicken and Cheesesteak have also been on the menu this week.  My plan (for when I move) is to plan breakfast and lunch out better too!

  • I’m praying for...
My sanity during this move.  I've been having a lot of stress related to it.  I know things will all calm down when I get settled on the other end.

  • I rewarded my kids this week by…
New cookie cutters!  How easy is that?! The kids wanted a mustache cookie cutter at the store the other day so we got them!


  • Something I am ogling or have my eye on…

  • A photo, video, link, or quote to share (silly, serious or both!)…

Preparing for a move, while keeping some sense of normal with a young family is lots of work. And list-making is definitely a sanity-saver! We moved many times when our older ones were young, so I understand what life must be like at the moment.
Hope you friend can share those tips soon - that would be an awesome post! For moms like me who had the movers pack up favorite blankies and stuffed animals.

Hope your little guy had an awesome birthday! :-) Good luck with the move. My hubby just retired from the Army in February. I'll keep you in my prayers! Coming over to visit from THMJ.
