What another crazy week! Electricity and Plumbing are fixed (Yes!).
Then out of nowhere, everything’s just peachy, I thought I pulled a muscle in my back. Only I didn’t pull a muscle I had a gallbladder attack that almost ended with me in the emergency room. Oh no please not days before Christmas! The same thing happened to Papa last year but his ended with surgery. I however am hoping to avoid the hospital. So it’s been lots and lots of rest and being taken care of by the best nurses in the world ;). Today I am feeling much ,much better, actually able to eat (thank goodness for Chinese take out and egg drop soup, man how things change when mama is sick).
Anyway even with all the interruptions the past 2 weeks our days went on without a hitch. Only the Christmas crafts and baking had to be put on hold. I think having our “nest” set up for the girls to safely explore really helped a lot. This way nobody “has to be in charge” for learning to happen it just kind of unfolds.
Miss Sky has found a new book of interest that has been by her side all week. It’s called Basher Science Astronomy, Out Of This World.
Oh and that My body book got a workout this week too ;).
We had plans to make a few of these characters as felties um but mama had to back out :(.
We also enjoyed Ingrid’s beautiful photographs of the lunar eclipse from her blog Defying Gravity.
Little Sis has been busy reading Frog and Toad to me and doing a little writing.
There’s been viewings of Planet Earth and BBC’s documentary Life. We played the video game Thrillville together, Little Sis passed the video game Disney Princess” Enchanted Journey all by herself. She also has been playing more with Tux Paint.
Let’s see, oh yes there were yummy butterscotch no bake cookies and an awesome 3 hour family conversation over “just” the trailer of The Movie The Help.
I can’t wait tell we actually watch the movie.
The Christmas stories have finally been in circulation starting with The Little House Christmas Treasury. I was excited that Miss Sky requested to read this. I thought her pioneer days long gone. Then there were Little Sis’s favorites, some from my childhood.
We watched favorite Christmas movies It’s A Wonderful Life, Frosty’s Winter Wonderland, The Night Before Christmas, Rudolph’s Shiny New Year, and A Year without Santa Clause as a family.
Papa and the girls played the board game Clue and helped Little Sis find some hidden pictures(I love her Mary and Joseph picture on the 10th)
and Miss Sky did some video game research on Ebay looking for new games and the best prices.
I’m sure I missed a couple of things being I was in bed a few days but that’s all of what I remember anyway :).
