Week in Review: January 26 – February 1

Another quiet-ish week around these parts. I’ve been going through my craft supplies and garage trying to purge out some of the overflow.

Mad studied “O” this week and made orange julius, oatmeal cookies, and an adorable toilet paper roll octopus, none of which I remembered to take photos of. Bad me.

I did break out a few of the Valentine crafts, though, so maybe that’ll make up for my lack of documentation. I thought these heart trees were too stinkin cute.



I snuck some math in on the next activity, which the girls didn’t mind at all. And (giant victory from last summer) Mad can finalllllly recognize her numbers past 5. Hallelujah! PicMonkey Collage

Here’s another death-by-video for your enjoyment.  I swear they usually don’t look like this when they recite things, but they seem to communicate telepathically during filming just to drive me bonkers.  Whatev.

Excellent verse for them to know, right? 😉

We’ve finally made it to the Greeks entrance in history so Susannah celebrated by making a “bronze” shield. She keeps telling me that now she can protect herself…at least until the barbarians arrive with their iron weapons. I think she’s ticked off that we made the less lethal option.  How very Susannah-like.

Hey look, I made a heart “tree,” too!  I wish I would have used felt instead of paper.

And here’s a few more random search engine funnies.

“kids couldn’t resist” – I wonder what they couldn’t resist?  Probably being bad.

things use in the day – well, that narrows it down.

balloon hanging from ceiling – because it wouldn’t be the same if it was hanging from the floor.

black and white drawing of outside grocery store – sometimes you just have to scratch your head and wonder why on earth people search for these things anyway.
