link for lapbook

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

Someone came here twice today with a search of “Wrinkle in Time Lapbook.” So in case that person makes it back, here’s where I got it. Live and Learn Press. My oldest really enjoys it and I would definitely use their products again.

here’s a little story

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

Once upon a time there was a day where everything went wrong. A day where a sigalert was issued in both directions of the same freeway. A day that resulted in having to call no less than 5 shoe stores because a certain princess had to have a certain color of ballet shoes and she […]

good stuff

Me: You are wonderful little freaks.
T: Hey! I’m insulted!
D: Yeah. I’m in-salted in salt water too!
We had lunch with my mom today and aside from the pleasant visit and the bizarrely affectionate kids (to each other), it was a really tasty veggie burger.
Daisy started her new dance schedule today and her first class includes one […]

last minute

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

Yesterday had two rash decisions for me. We hadn’t planned on going to park because Tues/Wed/Thurs the temps were flirting with 100° and I was sure it was be the same on Friday. So I planned for the girls and I to just get some extra stuff done in lessons. But then I woke up […]

night life

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

The days may be blistering hot, but oh how lovely the evening is. I spread a blanket on the patio on the backyard and pulled out a couple chairs for Daisy and I. We’ve listened to all the night sounds- crickets, the coo of a nearby dove, chirps of various other birds- and admired the […]

new table = fun

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

Last night I purchased a folding table because the girls can’t do lessons in the same space. They both have projects that need to be spread out and I don’t like to keep the dining table at its full size because that’s just too big. So a folding table in the living room that could […]

This afternoon we did Tabitha’s bridging ceremony to signify her going from Juniors into Cadettes. She planned the whole thing herself and included all of us wearing silly hats, trumpet blowing and confetti pelting provided by Daisy, and a speech by Tabitha. It was short but sweet and thoroughly her. I also presented her with […]

long day, but in a good way

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

To sum up the day- we worked on lessons.
Tabitha went straight to her California history notebook again. This time I did ask her to stop after an hour and a half so we cold get other things done as well. She then moved onto her “A Wrinkle in Time” lapbook and spent quite a long […]

Even if the past week is complete old news, I’m still going to type it up. If nothing else, my blog posts help me with my scrapbooking in terms of knowing what the pictures are from specifically. Not to mention, sometimes I enjoy reading my old posts and seeing what we were up to.
So, last […]

best laid plans

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

I was supposed to be doing this while sitting at a play area. I was going to have 3 hours to kill. But Daisy decided she wanted to come home and play a computer game instead. Since I was home I took care of some necessary to-do items some of which were being done on […]

It’s not you

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

It’s not that I’m ignoring blogging, I’ve just had zero time in the last however many days. Though I could theoretically do it right now, I’m in the middle of a movie and tomorrow I’ll have this nice chunk of time where blogging will be ideal and watching a movie will not.
So until then, I […]

Come and knock on our door

Saturday, August 14th, 2010

Date night last night! Woo-hoo! We all ate dinner at Applebees and then Chris and I dropped the kids off with his parents. Then it was out for a night of puppets.
That’s right, I said puppets.
Not just any puppets, no no. Sock puppets. And do you know what these sock puppets were doing? They re-enacted […]

tiny letters

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

My font is much smaller on my netbook. At first I simply wondered why I was seeing more of pages than I used to. Then I realized I hate to squint to read comments on Facebook. I don’t think it’s my eyesight, so somehow I need to figure out how to adjust this and how […]

where’d the time go?

Sunday, August 8th, 2010

Well that was an unscheduled break from blogging. Not sure what happened there. Nothing of note really went on during the week but we had a pretty good weekend.
Saturday Tabitha got to go see a sneak preview of Camp Rock 2 which made her very happy. It’s not even going to be on TV until […]

five and a half

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

A few days ago I told Daisy her half birthday was coming up. She really took that to heart and basically planned a mini-party. So today included a trip to her favorite park, plus we made party hats, we drew pictures of crazy cactuses/cacti, we threw confetti in the air (and apparently down my shirt), […]

go me

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Lessons, housework, a playdate, and I couldn’t dinner. Woo-hoo!
Tomorrow I attempt to add in yoga.

I want my mummy

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

Sunday morning the girls and I headed out to the science center to see the mummies exhibit. Chris was supposed to come too, but sadly was still feeling poorly. Since I had already bought tickets and they were non-refundable and couldn’t be exchanged, we had to make the decision to go without him.
But we […]
