|Snapshot Summary, May 10- 16|
This week was one of those weeks...a week in which you have full intention of doing all sorts of learning activities but it just doesn't happen. Life gets in the way. On those weeks, you just have to surrender to it and begin again the next week. We did have fun at the cemetery.
This week we visited a local cemetery in which I knew we had some distant relatives buried.
We also learned about how long people lived then, how some of them died and various other things related to our study of history there.
Katie finished the counted cross-stitch she started while her grandma was visiting...
Game night continues to be a favorite part of our week...
The garden is growing beautifully...
The boys planted a maple tree.
I started radiation treatments this week.
We have been planning a birthday party for a secret spy I know. I will show you more about this once we have the party.
I had the most lovely Mother's Day. It started with Quentin bringing me breakfast in bed (chocolate chip pancakes, strawberries in cream and coffee) and they gave me little gifts throughout the day.
We had these fun baskets for lunch and then we went out to shop for party stuff for Quentin's birthday party next weekend. Steven also took us all out to Rita's for ice cream after dinner.
Also, for Mother's Day, my friend Sylvia at Living and Learning with Our New Normal gave me this sweet award.
Thank you, Sylvia.
