Weekly Wrap Up - the crazy busy week

Certain weeks around here are busy -- very, very busy.  This was one of those weeks.  We had a great time with it though.

We started out on Monday with our Around the World Cooking Club.  This month our focus was France, we made strawberry crepes, chocolate cream puffs, chocolate mousse and ham and cheese en croute.  The food was yummy and the kids had a blast.

The rest of Monday was a blur, we had a couple kids stay after cooking club to play, and then we took them home, had dinner, and chilled out for the night.

On Tuesday, we had our first lessons from WinterPromise Sea & Sky.  The kids really enjoyed it - and I enjoyed it too.  Sometimes I like having a laid-out plan to follow (even loosely).  I think overall we'll be very pleased with it.  I have a tendency to revamp things after a bit, so I'm sure we'll add / change as time goes on.  Unfortunately this was the only day that we were able to fit in this study for this week.  Next week maybe.?

On Wednesday, my kids went to their classes at Leaves of Learning - they love that place and so do I.  It's a great environment, great teachers and great time to socialize with some other kids.

Yesterday, we had review club - it was fun, we usually meet at a park, so after the reviews are finished, everyone gets a chance to play and eat lunch.  Casual and fun, and I get to socialize, too.

Today we went to the Newport Aquarium (Newport, KY) for homeschool days.  It was fun, we had been before, but not for a while.  The kids mentioned maybe getting a pass here, I'm not sure if we'll do that - but it was definitely fun for the day.  We also had Biography Fair this afternoon.  A-Doll was the only one in our family who presented, she did her report on Albert Einstein.  Some of the other presentations were Dr. Seuss, Pee Wee Reese, Joe Montana, Walt Disney, the 33 miners, Hachico and Stan Lee.  I learned quite a bit, and I think the kids did too.  The other two decided that they would participate fully, next time.  I'm going to make sure they do. :)

I need to get a good camera, so I can start adding pictures here.   Stay tuned!
