Weekly Recap: With Valentine's Day

We had a fun Valentine's Day! We didn't do anything too special, but I did plan a nice dinner. I had my husband go pick up a catering order from Rumbi and I set the table with fancy dishes, candles, and chocolates. I gave my husband a basketball (after he asked for a new one because his outdoor ball wouldn't hold air), and he gave me a box of my favorite chocolates. Yum!

J is #11

I went to J's basketball game, for the first time, since he wouldn't let me come before. But now my husband's schedule prevents him from going. I took a bunch of pictures and had fun watching. I didn't even embarrass J once! The next day we played 3 on 3 as a family so J could practice some basketball skills, and it was a lot of fun until I landed on my foot wrong. I injured a ligament way back in 9th grade, and it has always given me problems since then (we opted not to have surgery). I used to always wear high-top shoes for support and to avoid accidents, but I haven't worn them for a long time and well, this is what happened when I thought I could play like I used to. Oops. It turned many fancy colors, was painful for a couple of days, and now it's just sore. I'm grateful for arnica, helichrysum, essential oil blends, and M for remembering where my support brace was!

There haven't been many other exciting events, just regular life. M and E spent their gift cards, we did some grocery shopping, I finally started taxes (I'm usually done by this date!), and everyone did great at getting school done on time or early.

School highlights:

  • History was a celebration about the westward movement. We chose to watch the movie 17 Miracles. 
  • We began studying Robert Frost's poetry in literature. We focused on his poem The Pasture, and learned about the speaker of a poem and how the prophet is the speaker for the Lord.
  • Our science lesson was all about smell. The kids were pretty fascinated by how that sense works!
  • For geography we talked about sacred stories from a variety of religions.
  • Music was a lesson about Sergei Rachmaninoff; we listened to a bunch of his compositions and learned about his life.

Upcoming reviews:

This next week I have three reviews going up - Wulf the Saxon, UltraKey Online Family Subscription, and I Am Harriet Tubman. We're excited to share these with you, they've been great for our family!

  1. Sounds like a wonderful valentine's day; sorry about the ankle! Great job for not embarrassing him at his game. :)
