Weekly Wrap-Up: back in the swing of things

The kids and their cousin kicked off the week with more birthday celebrations for Josh and treated him to movies and the Monday night burger special at Spur. I love that they are old enough to go out alone with either one of the oldest cousins driving, but my mommy heart always skips a beat until I know they are all home safe and sound! 

A great school week for Zak. We love the ease of online school! No preparation and daily schedules all there at the click of a button. The best part for me is that I can knit while reading and discussing lessons with him!
We covered so much: Alexander the Great, Pilgrim's Progress, John Bunyan, Moses and the Israelites, cells and cellular respiration, Pi, circumference and area of circles, force, Newton's laws of motion, experiments that went wrong and made us laugh and more!

 Zak enjoyed basketball practices this week to and a visit to a friend for the night despite the fact it was a school night. They went on an outing to Misty Cliffs for nature club the next day, and I was thankful to be able to spend the morning helping Keren get through 2 weeks worth of English lessons. Her week had not been great as she really wasn't well and needed to rest and recuperate. 

Thankfully she was feeling a bit better towards the end of the week and was able to go to art. There was great excitement when she received a new visual diary....

She decorated it with stickers, some that are literally years old and saved from her sticker swapping days. She remembers where each one came from and the significance behind each one. 
 Her art home work also took priority this week. 

I am continually amazed by what she produces.

The week ended with youth for the kids and hubby and I enjoyed a burger evening and movies with my brother and his little one. 
Here's to a relaxing weekend!
