I hope everyone had a great week. Thanks for checking out my weekly series posted every Friday, Week in Review. Enjoy a recap of how the week went down, and tell me about yours.
1) What’s gotten my attention this week?
42 Fashion Basics With Wildly Positive Reviews on Amazon. I love to support local business, but I also take full advantage of my Prime membership. This article prompted me to add several things to my wishlist.
2) What post should you check out?
I love me some peaches, and this unconventional peach salad recipe pairs my favorite fruit with gorgonzola. I can’t wait to try it.
3) What’s been going on this week?
Playing outside. The days are still hot, but it’s finally been cool enough in the evenings for us to hang out in the backyard. We’ve even been doing homework outside. The kids and I came up with a site words/spelling words hopscotch game. The words they need to work on are the double boxes. The words they know are the single boxes. Then as they hop through the boxes they read or spell the word they are on. I’m not sure yet how effective it is, but we’ve had fun.
4) What’s going on this weekend?
If all goes as planned I may have a friend coming in from out of town to do grownup time almost kid-free. What? I know. Stay tuned to see if it actually pans out.
5) Did you miss this post?
A Kinda Sad (But Also Happy) 1st Birthday She sure had a good time even it was a little hard for this mama.
6) What did my kids create?
A restaurant. My parents got the kids a playset for Christmas where the bottom level has a play kitchen built-in. Then for the kids’ birthdays, my parents got them a picnic table. So my daughter set up the picnic table on the other side of the play kitchen to make her own restaurant. She closed early on opening day because her brother was being such a bad customer.
Thanks for reading. How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
