Week in Review: September 14-20

We enjoyed our first break of the year this week and I feel sufficiently sane to start up again on Monday. We stayed busy, catching up on a few things we’d fallen behind on, and having some fun days, too.

We snapped a few photos to commemorate the start of new grades:

Check out these wild-looking, well wildflowers that I saw on a walk around the neighborhood the other evening.  They’re translucent.  Weird, right?

We were contacted by a girls clothing company to review one of their dresses, which we received in the mail this week.  Look for our thoughts on it in the near future.

Also this week, we:

Mowed the lawn (yes, we endorse child labor),

jumped on our new-to-us trampoline (thank you, thoughtful neighbors!),

made videos to entertain you with some of our current memorization pieces,

and went on an awesome momma/daughter date at the mall.  And seriously, I’m pretty much doomed if my girls already adore the mall with all their little beings, right?

Mad got a huge kick out of these "people with only half a head!"

Girls Date 2

 

They bought hair curlers, hand sanitizer, a little bling, and….makeup.  Doomed, I tell ya.

I swear, I didn't tell her to walk like that.

The part where we ate lunch at ChickFilA and it was all fun until some lady let her kid pee all over the floor next to us and didn't clean it up.  Check, please!

What did your week look like?  Do anything fun?  See anything gross?  Force your kids to mow the lawn?
