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?
Last weekend I already had the kids loaded up when I got a notification that our grocery pickup was delayed. Then, I remembered this piece that my friend wrote a while back about murals in OKC.
So I hopped on I-40 and headed to Bricktown to take the kids mural hunting. Surprisingly Bass Pro was PACKED. Also, surprisingly besides that, we were the only other people in Bricktown. Like at all. If the baby hadn’t fallen asleep, I would have put her in the stroller, parked, and gotten us all out to walk around. Even so, we had a lot of fun driving around and checking out the sites. It was a good outing.
2) What blog should you check out?
Jannat007. Peruse around and check out the blog of an 18 year old who believes that words have power and enjoys social observation. The posts are varied and fun and thoughtful.
3) What’s been going on this week?
We are still working remote, distance learning, and social distancing. Isn’t it cute that the baby, who is toddler that I can’t quit calling “the baby”, wants to do school too?
4) What’s going on this weekend?
With spring upon us my allergies and sinuses have been acting up, which I think has been contributing to an uptick in migraines. The last several weekends I spent at least a half day out of commission thanks to these stupid headaches. Hopefully this weekend I can get around to cleaning out the closets in the house because I’m behind on spring cleaning.
I wasn’t going to plant anything this year. My 7 year old son starting playing this Sim City type game about farming. Then he had a lima bean plant project for school that’s doing well. Then he got scared we may not be able to get food from the store because of Corona since I’ve had a hard time finding eggs. So he’s gotten pretty obsessed with wanting to become a farmer. Like he is watching Youtube tutorials on starting a small farm business, how to make a greenhouse, and what livestock is best to start with. Needless to say, I also hope to get some gardening done.
5) Did you miss this post?
A Teacher Parade Amid COVID-19. This got surprisingly emotional.
6) What did my kids create?
Foil boats. This was easy and so fun for the kids. They experimented with making foil boats, getting them to float, and then getting them to hold coins.
Thanks for reading. How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
