We caught things on fire.
Our $30 chemistry set was a BRILLIANT purchase - if I do say so myself.
Then, my youngest son won a limbo contest in his public school music class. That meant he got to move on and compete against all the other class winners - in front of the entire school. The teacher told him to "go home and practice." Boy, he took THAT homework seriously! My living room was limbo central all week long. I need to find a way to excite him this much about History...or Writing...or long division...
Competition day came on Friday, and that little stinker won second place. Guess all his practice paid off.
It's actually been a perfect school week. We only had two days of "normal school" and then we started Spring Break. Because the boys still went to Music and Gym classes at the public school all week, we will have 3 days next week where I don't have to STOP and drive someone to class. (which means slightly shorter days and long stretches of focused time) *big happy sigh*
In my life this week...
After a bit of a Valentine's flop (in his defense, we were traveling), Clay declared that I should have a birthday MONTH. Yep, you read that right.
On March 1, he gave me a birthday card to start everything out.
He was intentional about planning (and taking me on) a few dates, and I often got to hear the beautiful words, "Well, it's YOUR birthday month...so you pick."
I gotta say, I've been impressed - and it all came to a peak Thursday. (on my actual birthday)
I woke up to 4 birthday cards.
It was sweet.
Of course, 3 of them were along THIS line:
|This card was from my nephew who is visiting us for a few days...|
Evan told me HE picked it out, but let his cousin give it to me.
It was sappy and sentimental - I was sniffling and struggling to focus through tears before I had finished the front cover. He also hand-wrote a special note. (I'm telling you, he's "good".)
I would show you the handwritten note, but he wrote it in pen and messed up a bit (and since I'm a competitive homeschool mom, I'll stick to showing you only the impressive or funny stuff.)
*Can you see me rolling my eyes at myself?*
I also was honored by three Lego sculptures.

|A Flower...and a note that says "Top of the Morning To You".|
I think Micah has turned Irish.

Well, if you were hoping to get great homeschool ideas from this post, you are stuck with waffles...or maybe the limbo. I was obviously WAY too wrapped up in my wonderful day to focus on much of anything else.
I've decide that my birthday should happen once a month if I can keep getting treated like this. I don't even care if it means I'll be 80 in two years with birthdays that frequent - I think it might be worth it.
