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?
Camp Canoe by Camp Fire. This was actually about a month ago, but in my foggy mom brained state I forgot to post about it. So last month I found a Facebook event for a family day at a camp for children with autism to attend. When that day came it was perfect fall weather and the kids had the wiggles. So we went. And you know what? We all had the very best time.
They had zip lining, hiking, rock climbing, a ropes course, fishing, and probably other stuff I am forgetting. The staff was patient, knowledgeable, and friendly. While we were there we learned that Camp Fire hosts a specific day camp for children with autism and the their siblings, Camp Canoe (Children with Autism Need Outdoor Experiences). Based on the family day we will be looking into it.
Feel free to spread the word if you know of anyone who may benefit from the program.
2) What post should you check out?
Stuff that Stocking Without the Sugar. Some great ideas here! What goes in your stockings?
3) What’s been going on this week?
Work was busy again. Even though I felt wiped out in the evenings we did manage to make a trip to the library. What luck my train obsessed son has. They library was decorated in Polar Express theme!
4) What’s going on this weekend?
Will there be a snow and ice storm or not? That is the question. The answer will determine the direction of the weekend. Will we be reading and drinking hot coco all weekend? Will we be getting out of the house? I don’t know if it’s like this everywhere, but in Oklahoma winter weather gets hyped and then there’s a good chance nothing happens.
5) Did you miss this post?
Don’t skip your December birthday. Where are my holiday birthday people at? Do you find it tough to celebrate or skip it all together? How do you celebrate your birthday if it falls around the holidays?
6) What did my kids create?
This is from about a month ago too. I know. I’m behind with everything in my life right now. Instead of calling it Week in Review I should be calling this post Things I Forgot I Wanted to Post About Awhile Ago.
Anyway, at school my son’s class read Tom the Turkey, about a turkey who disguises himself so he won’t be eaten for Thanksgiving. The kindergarten class got their own Tom to disguise. My son choose one of his favorite book characters, David, from the book No, David. I thought it was clever, and he did a good job.
They displayed all the Tom’s in the hallway at school. Either there are some very advanced kindergartners or we may be one of the few that has our kids do their own projects. The other Toms were sure cute, but they were also pretty advanced.
Thanks for reading. How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
