A peak at my week

We’ve had a crazy week of doctor’s appointments and shopping trips, fun school projects where I forgot to bring the camera, and much more on the horizon.

As a finishing touch on our study of “Fishing in Spring” by Van Gogh, we headed to our pond and did some outdoor “painting.” Actually, watercolors were as brave as I could handle. But we still had a blast sitting in the grass on the bank of the pond and coloring our scenes; then, painting water over them for an artsy effect. The little one did a great job matching the colors that she saw in a very abstract design. My son was very meticulous with all of his details. And Mom–well, she goofed and forgot the camera! Can you forgive me?

On Thursday, we are headed to the Durham Children’s Museum with our church. We went last fall by ourselves and had a marvelous time. I’m really looking forward to going again, and I’ll try hard to remember my camera this time. Here were a few of our highlights from last fall:

The rocket ship was our hands-down favorite. The kids loved playing inside.

Another big event on the horizon is my first Usborne Books party! I’m doing it all virtually, which means all of the fun doorprizes and giveaways are online! The party will be this Saturday, July 23 at 8:30 p.m. (EST), and I will have a total of six small giveaways throughout the party. For the party link and more info on what a “virtual party” is, check out my post at the LovingUsborne blog.
