I hope everyone had a great week. Thanks for checking out my weekly series, Week in Review, posted every Friday. Enjoy a recap of how the week went down and tell me about yours.
1) What’s gotten my attention this week?
T-Shirts for Teachers. I know I’ve written a lot about the Oklahoma teacher walkout over the last few weeks. It’s just been heavy on my mind and heart. Oklahoma City Moms Blog and the Oklahoma Shirt Company have partnered to sell these shirts where $5 of the proceeds will go to an Oklahoma teacher for their classroom needs. The deadline to order is tomorrow! See more details here.
2) What blog post should you check out?
Dawn and Mike are full time RV adventurers. While that alone is interesting enough to visit their blog, the post A Day in the Live of an RV Dog – Full-time RV Life seals the deal. It is written from the point of view of the rescue bull mastiff who travels everywhere with them. Check it out for a guaranteed smile.
**I had a Meet and Greet recently where I asked bloggers to share their favorite posts from 2017. I’m going to a highlight a post a week from the links left. If you would like to leave a link and have a piece highlighted on a Week in Review post, click here and leave it in the comments.**
3) What’s been going on this week?
My three-year-old daughter had been especially cute. One evening I mentioned I was going to try to do some yoga. I was thinking prenatal. My daughter went into her bedroom though, turned out the lights, turned on her night light that mimics the aurora lights, and set up her tablet with Cosmic Kids Yoga. So we went through two videos together in the very tranquil environment she created for us. So freakin’ sweet.
She’s also been misusing words. It is too cute to correct though.
“Mom! You snargled (startled) me!”
“Oh chunks (shucks)!”
4) What’s going on this weekend?
Easter. We are going to my dad and stepmom’s farm to see the baby animals, have lunch, and partake in an egg hunt. Confession here, we haven’t been to church since January since I’ve been down and out so much with the pregnancy. I’m hoping I feel well enough to get us through our farm adventure and get us to church on Easter!
5) Did you miss this post?
Big New Received Anticlimactically. My kids. . . always keeping me on my toes. . .
6) What did my kids create?
A turtle flower garden. Guys, a set of grandparents generously gave one of the kids a sandbox for their birthday a few years ago. While we got some good use out of it, the hubs and I are tired of sand being tracked through the house when they are finished playing. My friend sent me this idea to build a flower garden in a sandbox, and we are giving it a whirl.
My husband drilled holes in the bottom of the sandbox for drainage. My daughter picked out pink and purple flowers after I steered her away from the prettiest, most expensive ones at the nursery. We all chipped in to pour the dirt and plant the flowers and sprinkled some herb seeds throughout. We got it finished right before all the rain came in this week.
The kids have their own watering cans, so they’ll take care of it. We have a tiny vegetable garden it’s sitting in front of. Maybe it’ll help attract some bees?
Thanks for reading. How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
