The past week was an off week for us. It started out with me not feeling well on Tuesday, but feeling better on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, and then getting hit with a fever Friday night and all day Saturday. Somehow in the midst of all the yuckiness I was dealing with, we managed to do some fun things and keep the learning rolling as well.
My kids enjoy being in the kitchen with me. The girls made their own pizzas one night and enjoyed decorating the snowman cupcakes to share with their AWANA friends.
On Tuesday morning (before I started feeling bad) I took Tyler out for breakfast. I always enjoy spending one-on-one time with my kids.
A couple days this week, my girls got out some of my kitchen things to pretend they were on a cooking show. I truly enjoyed watching them play because I was suddenly hit with the realization that there may not be many more years of this type of pretend playing going on in my home. My kids are growing up too quickly.
I told Tyler I'd take him to visit a pet shop on Tuesday morning, but when we arrived at 9am, they weren't open, so I promised I'd return later in the week and bring his sisters as well. We were able to squeeze this outing in on Thursday afternoon. We also visited Sonic to get happy hour sodas, and a trip to the library as well. It was a fun afternoon.
Kaitlyn got a Kindle for Christmas and she has become a total e-book snob. She sat in the library reading from her Kindle while her brother and sister loaded up on "real" books.
