THMJ Week of 1/19/14

    In our homeschool this week…
We are using for science now.  We finished our Apologia just as this opportunity came up with the Schoolhouse Review Crew.  KinderBach is our new music class.  Still plugging along in Math U See and reading God's World News for current events.  

    What we're reading... 
 The Boxcar Children

    Around the house... 
Enjoying rainbow cake.
Xav was this week's birthday punk.  He turned seven and chose a rainbow cake to celebrate.  I've made them before and I think they turn out much better when I use all six colors in both layers.  I told him I'd even make ice cream.  He went with peppermint candy ice cream, but wished I'd used more candy canes in it.  He invited B over from next door.  She and one of her brothers came over for a couple of hours to hang out.  Xav was super excited about having his first brand new bike.  

We gave him a scare about birthday spankings and he quickly tried to protect himself.
    Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
We had Rangers and I taught Rainbows this week.  The boys are learning ABC Bible verses.  This one is M - My son, give me your heart.  Proverbs 23:26

    My kiddos favorite thing this week was…
While Xav's birthday was probably his favorite thing, it was definitely not Mal's favorite.  He was a little grumpy for a couple of days and said he wished his big day was sooner.

    Things I’m working on…

I finally sent out the birthday present for my mom.  Aaaaand I didn't take a picture of it.  Pleh.

    Things Dad is working on...
Pinewood derby cars.  The boys are doing theme cars this year.  Mal made the train from Toy Story 3 and Xav's is a plane from the Disney movie Planes.  I'll share pictures in next week's post.

    I’m cooking…
Barley risotto.  Oh. My. Yum!
Birthday cake.

Rainbow cake batter.
Ice cream.
Cookies using the rest of the cocoa nibs Christine gave me.  This time, I used a basic cookie recipe for chewy cookies and added the nibs.  They were so good.
