I found some fun worksheets and activities for math, science and language arts, that used boxes of candy hearts - so Sam and Abby sat and worked through those...comparing boxes, sorting, graphing, stacking, measuring, estimating....
We prepared the tank and then hatched the Sea Monkeys - the children have been enjoying watching them grow - there are sooo many in there and and they are so big already!
Abigail had a VERY creative week again and continued to make endless things for her doll - from furniture to shoes! She then got out my polymer clay and made some foods which she baked in the oven. I think she did an amazing job:
I love watching and listening to Sam playing with his toys. He loves at-home days and so was happy with the nasty weather this week which meant staying home lots and having the fire lit :)
The birds were so hungry this week - we restocked their feeders several times:
After the birthdays, we were totally ready for some home cooked meals. Last night was pulled pork in the crockpot, the night before we had mashed spuds, pies and veggies - and tonight we had fish.
I used some of the candy hearts to make a wreath for Valentines Day:
It was a quiet week thankfully - but also because we cancelled some of our plans and spent a lot of time at home - much needed to re-centre and relax.
We made some ice gemstones to play with and to set into a glass bowl outside.
Last night Sam ran me a bath (awwww) and sprinkled bath confetti into it for me -
You can spy some Leg in there too :)
I love my bathroom :)
Susannah had an eye exam this week and her eyes have continued to deteriorate :( she needs a MAJOR prescription change again - she found some glasses that look great! And we got a discount with AMA thankfully!
Abigail enjoyed trying on glasses while she waited:
