It's been a good week around here! And, although I have yet to pack a box, I have thrown a lot of stuff away, so that's always a plus, right? I feel like Gracie and I will be able to pack up some games and rarely used kitchen items today, though!
Enjoying scones and Downton Abbey with my favorite person!
We had a super fun Saturday in Madison! We met some friends for lunch, hung out at the Children's Museum, looked around inside the capitol and stopped at Trader Joe's! The girls were so impressed with how fancy the capitol was!
Yeah, that's the Vikings game we are
This is what after school is like at our house! At the beginning of the school year, I've had the girls bring their folders and papers to the table where we have a snack together. I look through the papers right away and get rid of whatever I'm not saving. I enter dates on the calendar right away, too. I feel like it's really helped me keep on top of things!
I started reading the girls The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe! We're really enjoying it! I've never read any of the Chronicles of Narnia, so it's been fun for me, too. I find that the girls do better listening to a chapter book if they are doing something with their hands, although Gracie did wander off (thankfully not into a wardrobe)...
We went to Menards to look at some flooring and found these fine Darth Vader shower heads. I'm sure we can all agree that we would get much cleaner using one ;)
Maggie got 3rd place in the fire prevention poster contest, but it was for the Kindergarten category. There was some sort of mix up, and her poster got in the wrong pile, but she handled it well!
Have a great weekend!
