We have had an incredible week here at the academy. I have lots and lots that I would like to share but as usual, very little time to dedicate to it. Since I have some larger posts that I want to do sometime tonight... I am going to just do a quick overview.
Starting this week out we had 17 hours of "extras" that needed to be completed. We also were planning to go to Liberty Memorial on veterans day. So 17 hours of extra work in only 4 days. We also had our regular work that had to be completed. I honestly didn't think that we would make it... But guess what? WE DID!
When we took on this project I was thinking there was NO WAY the kids could mess this one up.
This week we have had SO MANY blunders it became a running joke. Abby has given counsel to Suzie when yet ANOTHER project did not turn out the way we had hoped. "Don't worry about it Suzie, it's just an experiment". Priceless advice from my 9 year old.
Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for our blessings.
That has been our theme this last week.
My dear husband went out and cut me a nice branch from our Cherry tree.
We placed it in the middle of a coffee can (with colored paper covering the label) filled with rocks.
In order to make the leaves look crinkly we sprayed them with water and crumpled them up. Then we let them dry.
The kids then punched holes in them and added the things they were thankful for.
