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?
Gravity Falls. It’s a show on Disney+ about 12-year-old twins, Dipper and Mable, spending their summer in Gravity Falls with their great uncle. Mysterious things are always happening in Gravity Falls. Obviously, the twins spend their summer getting in and out of trouble while investigating happenings in this strange place.
Everyone in our house from the baby to my husband loves this show. It is fun enough for the kids, interesting enough for the adults, and has the humor to appease both groups sprinkled throughout. If you are looking for a show to watch with the whole family, give this one a try.
2) What blog post should you check out?
I think it must be a few years now that I have been following Kris’s blog, The Hungry Boys. Her kids are older than mine, and I feel like she offers glimpses into my future (along with yummy recipes). For a refreshing cocktail recipe and to find out about an art medium I had never heard of before, check out her post Bee’s Knees Cocktail (Vegan).
3) What’s been going on this week?
We meet up with friends at the park Sunday and took a mini-hike because it was 70 degrees and sunny and perfect. 3 days later school was canceled and I worked from home because we had snow come through. (All you northerners don’t laugh! It’s Oklahoma. We get ice storms sometimes and real snow once every five years.) I’ve lost my voice because my allergies are berserk, not able to keep up with drastic changes going on. It’s been an interesting week.
4) What’s going on this weekend?
Chores. I’ve gotten behind on house stuff. The kind of behind where one thing is going to lead to another thing. That’s okay. Our weekends haven’t been jam-packed lately. So it’s nice to have the time to get to some of this stuff.
5) Did you miss this post?
Kale and Quinoa Salad. A yummy kale salad recipe from someone who (gasp!) doesn’t really like kale.
6) What did my kids create?
Math Problems. Their school is having a Family S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) Night next week. The kids had to create an age-appropriate math problem to be displayed. My daughter made a counting problem, How Many Stars? While that seems easy, it was kind of hard to keep track of them all since they aren’t in rows. My son made a counting problem too, How Many Mammals? While that seems easy, he added in some birds and reptiles to try and make it a bit tricky.
Thanks for reading. How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
