Our weekend is still going over here. My hubby's days off are Sunday & Monday so we make that our weekend.
Right now MangoPapa and Cherry are out on a father/daughter date.
So KiwiBoy and I are just relaxing at home. I'm trying to get some laundry done and maybe straighten up a little. I really
need to clean off the computer desk!
For the past few days I have been busy designing my new blog, Heart of Discovery
. I'm just getting it set up right now and designing the header and background, adding links, etc. Hopefully I will actually post on it within the next few days.
Yesterday, MangoPapa and I cleaned the gutters... although he did most of the work because I'm afraid of heights and couldn't get on the roof.
And for the past couple of days, we have actually been going out on walks in the evenings. It's been really nice now that the weather is cooling off a bit. I am one of those people that absolutely canNOT stand the heat! I am just so uncomfortable and unhappy in the heat. Fall cannot come fast enough for me.
Last week I set up workboxes,we call them discovery boxes, and they are working great so far! I think it's definitely a step in the right direction when it comes to us wanting more structure to our day. I didn't like how rigid Sue Patrick's system is, so we tweaked it a bit to our liking. The kiddos are
it, too! My only problem is thinking of things to put in the boxes. But I'm slowly getting more ideas and I belong to a couple workbox Yahoo groups so that helps.
Also, I am waiting on a huge order from Rainbow Resource; an order from HWT, Acorn Naturalist, and eNasco.com. So hopefully once those get here, we'll have more things to do. I'm especially looking forward to the entomology mounting set we got at eNasco.
I still have to place an order at DickBlick for most of our art supplies. I have the Artistic Pursuit books for each child, but none of the art supplies that it calls for. Oh, and
I keep forgetting to order sketch books that I want for our nature studies. I feel like I can't even begin our nature studies until we have those books!
OK... I should take a break from internet time and get crackin' on this desk!
