THMJ Week of 3/23/14

    In my life this week…
Micah and Mal had birthdays this week.
Much boy excitement here in the loony bin.

Mal's new baseball went missing.  Merrick finally (a day or two later) said, "Ball.  Stuck."  And there it was, under his booster seat.

    In our homeschool co-op this week... 
Merrick chose the nursery over Wiggles and Giggles this week.
Magic School Bus Class - Structures episode and made gumdrop bridges.  Some eating of building supplies may have occurred.  In fact, between second and third periods, I walked into the nursery and found Merrick and Mathias had gotten into Xav's stuff and eaten half of his bridge!
Nature - Xav made a little giraffe of pipe cleaners and clay.
Arts and Crafts -Xav made a hanging bunny basket out of paper plates.
Archery - Xav did some more good shooting.
Duct Tape Class - Malachi made maracas with plastic eggs and spoons.  We started a piece of dt "fabric" to make a bag next time.
Amazing Body - Skeletons were finished and sent home.  Woo hoo!
Merrick had fun with Mrs. T. during clean-up.  She taught him how to stack blocks with a "window" between them and then he'd drive a toy car to knock them down.  Then he surreptitiously took photos with my iPhone of the moms "doing the chatting" in the nursery.
After classes, Xav flew his RC airplane in the "big room."

Everyone was so wiped out, we didn't even go to the library.  No one complained.

    In Rangers this week... 
Rangers was cancelled because so many have had a tummy bug lately.

    What we're reading... 
Daddy is reading The Great Brain

    I’m cooking…

Kitchen weirdness.  Went to do some cooking and had static-y yeast.

    Out of the mouths of boys... 
Merrick's first knock knock joke.
Merrick: knock, knock (more like na na)
Me: Who's there?
Merrick: mommy
Me: Mommy who?
Merrick: *laughs*

    A photo, video, link, or quote to share (silly, serious or both!)…

Xav's reading is good enough to read to Merrick now.
