Weekend was decent here. No complaints...

Going on this week. Hmm...this is our 3 days of gymnastics week, so there's that. Otherwise, not much going on. I'm trying to figure out the best way to get some understanding of number sense into my daughter. We seem to be having some sort of disconnect and I haven't figured out where, so I've been doing trial and error with manipulatives trying to figure out how to get some understanding.

Trial and error is the best method until you get a good idea what her learning style is.

Weekend was alright. I'm sick, but dh and Ben made chocolate chip cookies (from scratch) yesterday while I napped, so that was nice.

This week is the beginning of 2nd grade. Summer will be a light load because we have tons of fun stuff planned. We're doing reading, writing, math, latin and geography (with the occasional art project as well). Geography starts next week, but everything else started today and went great.

Hope you start feeling better! And yay for cookies (that you didn't even have to bake! ) and glad you had a great start to 2nd grade.

Weekend was alright, nothing special.

Took a load down to the other house over the weekend and to get there and Sarah to get sick. Then we got back Saturday night all was good. Sunday we got up and I swore someone had split a cup of water by the edge of the fridge as the carpet was all wet. Everyone said not me, well, that's nothing unusual around here. I happen to open up the freezer only to find water dripping from the ice maker EVERYTHING was thawed out too!! I managed to salvage some stuff and put it in the fridge part and took a couple of things that were still froze over to my mom's freezer. Got back home and was working on taking down the kids playset and went to get a drink only to find everything in the fridge was warm!! UGH!!! Not what I needed!!! I ended up calling a friend and borrowing her old dorm fridge and coolers. So we are now using those until we move
Today we took down their big playset and power washed it. I am SO exhausted!! I cant wait to get this move over with so I can lounge around on here!!!
